Only one photo? I was expecting another series. I love socks and they can add so much interest, style and fun to a look. Definitely a finishing touch. More socks!; before it’s spring and everything is bare ankles again.
Can you capture something that is a little out of your element. I want to see someone is head to toe Rick Owens, Thom Browne(with out looking like a victim), Walter Van Bierdendock etc. I think you catch my drift. I’m of seeing the current(always boring issue of GQ).
The right sock can actually make or break an outfit; and this time of year they should always be made of a very high quality wool, to keep you warm when you are stepping out. My favorites are made by Laura Ashley.
Colored socks can add such an interesting detail to your outfit. While being in London last year I saw so many people in suits wearing loud socks and it looked fantastic. I bought 10 pairs of Effio socks (a quality brand from The Netherlands), their are almost as good as Paul Smith’s but much cheaper. I love em and I get lots of compliments for them. Especially women seem to love interesting socks on men.
I like the immaculate shiny black shoes with the surprise stripes and the rolled up tidy pants. I questions the two back pleats of the dark red jacket. The navy or black down jacket looks cool, because it is so warm.
Oh Mr. Schuman, you’ve got me on my knees for this one: Perfection.
What the gentleman’s wearing is fantastic of course, but it’s your instinct to crop this portrait right at the elbow that creates the impact: strong graphic lines, intimate, urgent and even voeyueristic.
I admit I do not like these socks at all. Red, white and blue in large, blocky stripes connotes summertime conservatism to me. I don’t feel like these socks diverge from that enough to ‘reclaim’ the aesthetic. Obviously, though, I’m in the minority with this opinion.
Be careful with coloured socks. There is a thin line. However I have noticed that you cant go wrong with the colourful Paul Smith socks and brown (Santoni) shoes. Never with black shoes though. I have had many compliments from men, but far more from women. I am not too sure about the combination in the picture.
These just-a-little-too-short pants are growing on me…:] They bring back socks! Who doesn’t love socks? I have a friend who wears really simple outfits (think AmericanApparel) but his socks are always funky :]
