Summer is officially over, but I was able to get one more wear out of this suit before I put it away. When I put it on, I noticed that the shoulders are starting to divot both on top and at the sides, most noticeably on the left side. Usually, this is the result of either poor construction, body type of the wearer or a combination of the two. The reason for the observation here is that this wasn't the case when I bought it, so now I figure there's a new opportunity to learn something new - how to get rid of divots if at all possible.
Moving on. So ordinarily, I would go for a much darker shoe with this suit, maybe a dark brown suede even, however I really wanted to stick with the sort of light colored theme here. So instead I decided to break up the almost continuous color with the socks. In hindsight, I probably could have also gone sockless here and let my skin provide the break.
