Of course I can not find it when I need it but a week or so ago I saw a new-to-me photo of Cary Grant wearing a dark suit and necktie with light socks. And so it was that I set out to do the same.
In the photo, a gray flannel suit accessorized above the waist with a gray on white striped shirt, white micro-dot on black necktie and a white linen and cotton pocket square with a gray-green border.
Below the waist, beige socks with beige and green stripes and brown semi-brogues.
Mr. Grant, of course, did it better.
