I am sure sartorial souls would react differently, especially given the wonderful array of ties and socks out there, and what one can do with them.
Seven fold tie: Hand cut, folded and sewn from a single piece of silk jacquard; un-lined and limited to 40 pieces per design.
Cotton sock: Manufactured by small-scale, family-owned factory in Italy; limited to less than 312 pieces per style or color; delivered with hand-written note.
Godzilla could only be so lucky.

I have walked by this lamp many times before noticing that it is adorned from top to bottom with buttons. I consider myself lucky to have noticed.

This black bowler is very much at home with a grey coat and brown attache.
As a hat enthusiast once related to me, "You have to wear the hat. Do not let the hat wear you."

There is that smile again. Blair just really enjoys clothes and putting together a polished look. A great mix of patterns in brown tones, with the paisley tie adding contrast. I love the detail on his jacket and shirt sleeves, respectively. I would not have seen it if he had not pointed it out to me. Thanks Blair.
His knit tie was to die for - both the tie itself, and the way he wore it. The tie is distinct in its size and design, and his look is so effortless with his unbuttoned shirt collar and half zipped up vest.
Double-wow if his tie is actually a scarf worn as a tie.

These five pairs of socks definitely make my day, and maybe the day of whoever is lucky enough to catch a glimpse of them on a day out.
Go ahead, flash somebody!

This is Mr. Blair Shapera, tailor and proprietor of Blair Shapera Custom Clothing. I have known Blair for about a year now, and during that time two things have stood out for me: his sense of style, and his smile. The picture above gives a hint of both.
He is always nicely presented whenever I happen to see him. On this occasion, his shirt, pants and socks pay homage to a matching corduroy vest and jacket. It takes style to tame those bold colors and patterns. A great smile does not hurt either.

I find her style very distinct. She has a kind of awkward look to her - part nerd, part cool. I love how her glasses compliment the volume of her hair and lips, and play to the color of her jacket. You can not see it in the picture, but she is wearing a shoulder bag which accesorizes nicely with her pants. Awkward? Maybe. Confident? Definitely.
