The folks who developed the UBS dress code may not like the thought but socks should rarely be black. When a man needs to be discreet they should match his trousers, with just a bit of pattern to give them some interest.
When discretion is not called for, choose socks that pick up the color of some article of clothing worn above the waist, or that relate to nothing at all. Dark red, like the alternate socks shown in the illustrations, is always a reassonable choice to fall back on.
