Fall/Winter Checklist: Socks

Over the next few weeks, I will be highlighting all of the important Fall essentials that you need to be equipped with to get you through the next 6 months.

Seeing as how it's pretty much the most inexpensive thing you can buy, I figured that socks would be a good start. With the exception of the occasional formal event, from about late February to late September my socks collect dust. Living in the south, there's really not much logic to wearing them during the Spring/Summer months. But now, there's a crisp feeling in the mornings,  followed by a post 6pm airiness that all of a sudden makes wearing socks a little more reasonable. These are the socks you wear with your grown man shoes. You know,  laceups, loafers, and monkstraps. For heavy duty sh**-kicking boots, I'll tell you which socks are for those a little later.

So go out and grab yourself a few pairs. Below I have some suggestions for everyone from the plain Daves of the world, to the more eccentric gentleman. Me personally, with socks I err on the side of eccentricity. It's a great opportunity to show some spunk. And don't get too hung up on being so matchy, matchy. In the words of John Witherspoon, "You got to coooordinate".
