"Yeah. They should complement - sometimes ignore one another - but never insult or match one another exactly. I love pocket squares - ain't wild about that one Craig's wearing, though. A red one looks great with a black jacket and a pale…"

"Shoes: With a navy suit you can wear both brown and black.  I wear a suit every day for my job (I'm an attorney).  With my navy suit I wear a black cap toes (Cole Haan, Nordstroms) or brown wing tips (Hugo Boss). Socks: You can get…"

"Haha this was awesome. Daniel Craig is a boss (although, I know that if I tried that it wouldn't look as good). The matching tie and pocket square does not look good.  I wouldn't do anything crazy with the pocket square. I'm…"

"RE: the pocket squares - any number of things you can do with'em. You can wear the square banker - just a neatly-pressed linen handkerchief, a la Mad Men - a more businesslike use of them. Or a plain or pattern one that complements the tie BUT…"

"Thanks everyone for the help! I'm new to having a nice suit that fits me well and I was pretty excited about what to add to it. You guys were really helpful. It seems that there are standards for some things (shoes, socks) while other parts are…"

"Wear what you like. there's no reason why you shouldn't wear a tie-clip. If you want to wear it, then wear it. Part of dressing is having the balls to wear whatever the hell you want. "

"Shoes: Dark brown works with navy and dresses it down a bit.  Burgundy looks good too.  Black dress navy up, and it a better look for evening. Socks:  Red is fine. Pocket square: Start with plain white linen or cotton, then work your…"

"Get dress cowboy boots, they'll take care of the 'individuality' ... and you don't need to coordinate socks.  Socks always struck me as a strange area for 'individuality' anyway. Pocket squares are too flashy for…"

"You cannot go too far wrong with nice black (polished) shoes.  Black or Navy socks might be safest.  This is an older thread on tie tacks and clips: http://community.artofmanliness.com/forum/topics/tie-tacks-tie-bars  Do you have a…"

Need some advice for accessories for a suit!

I recently got a new Navy suit that I am very excited about and I want to add some accessories to wear with it. Unfortunately, I'm not really sure about what to get. These are the accessories that I'm wondering about:Shoes: I've heard differing opinions on the shoes for a navy suit. I've heard "only wear black shoes," "only wear brown shoes." and "try something different like burgundy shoes." So I'm kinda confused on this front. Realistically though, it probably doesn't matter much!Socks: I'm…See More

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More

Relatively new here; thought I'd say hello

Hello men,I'm not new to Art of Manliness, but I am new to the community. I thought I'd take the time to introduce myself. I'm almost 30, married for just over a year, and we have our first child on the way. I'm Mormon. I worked for five years sewing men's clothing, which is perfectly fine as a manly career in my opinion, but it was a dead-end job ultimately, so I quit and became an electrician. I'm still in my first year as an apprentice, but I'm very happy doing it. Before that, I was…See More
