Thank you for this photo. The gloomy current affairs have been weighing me down, and your pink socks have cheered me tremendously.

Great look, LBT. Th argyle breaks it up nicely.

LBT, I just came home wearing those same tassel loafers and pink/stone argyles. Must be some sort of trippy cosmic trad thing. Don't tell me you were wearing a pink OCBD, too.

LOVE the shoes and the socks!!
I think men's traditional clothes are so classy. It is incredibly hard to find women's clothes like that. Brooks Brothes of course. However, I've noticed Talbot's is going back to very traditional and classic.

Dear Anon october 13,
Anderson& Shepherd, Savile Row, London made my grandfather's evening tails in 1946 to the same pattern they used for his forebear in 1846 and are indoubtably still using today in 2008... so i'm not sure what 'tradition' in men's clothing really means??
ps tails still going strong and being worn by my god father in Venice...

How about a 2008 update on the eponym of your blog, The Admiral Codrington?

Surely, sockless would be more trad, especially near the water .... Also, as a Yank who has lived in London for the past 17+ yrs, I do not recall ever having seen a Brit in argyle socks (not that it matters). I have many happy memories of the Cod, though, some dating back to 1985. Aloysius is right; an update is warranted.

The socks.

We. Must. Have. The. Socks.

We would even consider groveling to acquire the name of the emporium where they were acquired.

Puh-eeze?

No need to grovel. I found my socks at a local shop. But, you can also get them online at O'Connell's: http://shop.oconnellsclothing.com/

YEAH! Now that's what I'm talking about with the socks. Don't get me wrong the gray was quit nice. But I love color.
