Unless it is a first visit, one should always visit a tailor or shoemaker wearing a comission that they made recently. This is not only polite, it enables them to check the fit. In the photo, chocolate brown W. S. Foster slip-ons are paired with a navy blue suit with a faint light blue check and a pair of strikingly striped cotton socks from the ASW store.
Now whenever a man wears something so bold as the socks in the photo, the remainder of his dress should be fairly conservative and so above the waist were a Pacific blue candy striped shirt with a cutaway collar, silver and blue block stripe repp necktie (also from the store), white linen pocket square and an optimo panama hat.
