How many times have we heard the old saw about never wearing white socks with a suit? If pale hose were good enough for Cary Grant, and they were, they should be good enough for the rest of us. Unless the socks are athletic, of course.
Bresciani's white sea island cotton dress socks, a pair of red tassel slipons by SW1 and a tropical black and white houndstooth patterned suit. Above the waist, a light blue linen and cotton shirt, white linen pocket square and a black silk knit necktie. The shoes are not as brightly colored away from the spotlights but when wearing red shoes and white socks the rest of the day's clothing should be very restrained nonetheless.
