    What brand and fit of jeans are those? I’m in desperate need of not too pricey, quality denim.

    Thanks to all for the sock advice…  I figured there had to be a cheaper option but was looking in the wrong places!

    @Zack—The navy silk knit tie is by Brooks Brothers. It can be one of your most versatile accessories in your wardrobe.

    @Andy M.—As NWR mentions in this post, the loafer socks from Journeys are a cheaper option. I wear them in black. They are cheap enough to buy over an over again without consideration for how fast you might go through them.

    @Luis Alcaraz—When I will be on my feet for extensive periods of time, I wear socks…loafer socks that give the appearance of not wearing socks. Now, that’s comfortable.  Remember, if you decide to go sock-less, shoe trees help to absorb moisture and odor.

    @robdarko—Yes, that belt is an equestrian belt by Tory.

    Who makes that tie?? It’s perfect!

    I’m really getting into the colored denim thing.  Well done.

    Like Ben I also use baby powder in each shoe. It really makes quite a difference, and helps with odor control as well!

    Such a Superman pose! Love it.

    Coveting that belt. Obsessing over those shoes.

    Give the no-show socks from Journeys a whirl. Not a bad deal. Black or white. 5 pairs for $10.

    Try a little baby powder in each shoe when going sockless.

    @andym I’ve tried many brands of these no-show socks, including higher-end ones and sock specialists (like Goldtoe). 

    My favorite?  The ones from Payless Shoes.  Seriously.

    Really nice… This is a tough group of colors and patterns to make work well and it looks awesome.  I love the lighting here too.

    Luis, I love the sockless look but think it’s uncomfortable not to wear socks.  I buy “invisible” super low rise socks at Neiman Marcus… $25 for a set of three.  You can’t see them with even the most low cut loafers and they’re great to keep your feet dry. 

    Anybody else know another (cheaper) place to get something like them?

    I kind of can’t get over how much I love those shoes.

    The unexpected with those green jeans! It actually works with that nice gingham shirt. Even the colors of the belt & shoe compliments the green.
    Well done!

    Looks great!! I really like the idea of a color trouser but I prefer trousers than jeans. Question, Is it always comfortable not to wear socks??

    Lovely how everything combines and matches perfectly. 5/5

    Laguna, I cannot tell if he has a trim cuff or a roll.  Most likely it is a roll and it says that F.E.C. is “… modern and a tad preppy.” Also, according to The Cuff Code, he like drawing attention to his ankles or those awesome RL loafers.

    F.E.C., you look very smart.  Is that an equestrian belt?  Unfortunately, I require a substantial belt to keep everything neat.

    Not fair! Amaze!

    I like the colour and pattern combinations.  Difficult, but you pull it off.

    Mr. Green Denim Trousers. What’s with the cuffs, thin as a Mont Blanc pen? Love the tie, turtleshell specs, and loafers. Well done.
