In browsing through a number of mens style/fashion discussions, I have noticed some inconsistencies in how to best coordinate sock color with other pieces of one's attire. Some say that sock color should match shoe or trouser color to "create a seamless line" while others frown on this look. A few point to the obvious coordination of pattern or bits of color in the socks to something else that is being worn. What about solid color socks and other articles of clothing? I'm sure there are a number of different ways to pull off a look, but for some reason I am still somewhat confused and ask for your help. Here are two possible outfits from my closet. What socks would you choose? Outfit #1 Blazer: navy Shirt: oxford cloth, medium blue color Tie: regimental stripe, medium green and blue (picking up shirt color) Pants: off white, pleated Shoes: off white bucks Socks: ??? Outfit #2 Shirt: polo, royal blue Pants: plain front, khaki chinos Shoes: either plain brown or saddle oxfords (mid-brown, dk. brown saddle) Socks: ???
