I like to wear dress shirts with matching socks. My socks wear faster than my dress shirts, and then I need to find a new pair. Sometimes I buy socks in a set and have no shirts that match. How can I find a shirt to match my sock, or a sock to match my shirt?

I looked to see if there was something that existed that solved this problem and came up empty. So, I decided to build a thing.

Now, I can snap a picture of my shirt, and find a sock. Or I can upload a pic of a sock, and find a shirt. Or I can pick a color I like and find a pair of socks and a shirt.

Check it out at You can find men’s shirts, socks and ties, or women’s purses, scarves and shoes. Still a work in progress.
