The coming of warmer weather means that cotton socks come into their own. I choose herringbone or pick and pick patterned hose for myself most of the time on sunny days. They provide a slight change in color and pattern that is just enough to make the ankles more interesting without drawing and holding the eye of the observer.
This subtlety of course might be considered at odds with an occasional choice of bolder colors. But that is the fun of it after all. A man should not wear a solid necktie every day, nor should he get too attached to red socks.
In the photo, gray pick and pick hose paired with Cleverley slip-on shoes and a mid-weight suit in gray worsted. Shall we go for a walk?
