Colour of socks?

Over the last few days one bone of contention between myself and my friend was about the colour of the socks that one shoud wear, as required by standard etiquette. I was of the opinion that the colour of the socks should match the trousers and he felte that it should match the colour of the shoes. I decided to check this out a few minutes ago and was happy to be unanimously supported by all the etiquette sites. So the rule is: The colour of the socks should match the colour of the trousers and the colour of the belt should match the colour of the shoes.
Here are a few links that will explain this and more about professional etiquettes: Etiquette Tips and Quick Fix Focus On Style- Matching Socks, Men’s Style and University of Pittsburgh: Katz Graduate School of Business.
