By the way I had a day in New York today and nipped in to Uniqlo to escape the rain. Got some socks and yet another Breton type top. Socks were $2 per pair, top was $15.


At 2,90€ in Europe, their socks are very good value for money, a substantial poly/cotton mix, way better than Zara or Mango.

BTW, some time ago someone here -mr. Bond maybe?- complained about the difficulty to find well priced vertical striped socks; well, Uniqlo has got them at 3,90 €/pair, albeit in just two shades of grey:



Not so much the cost , Sydney , more like the lack of availability . .

If I'm not wearing socks that match my outfit , my default colour is always red . I think it is a late Mod thing and it shows my movements better when dancing . I was on a course recently and I got comments about my sock choice from "normals" , mostly complimentary. . 8)

I've got tons of socks, as I need (yes, those obsessions of ours) them to match my trousers (or if it can't be well done, my shoes), but I've never liked bright red shoes, too flashy, I prefer burgundy. Maybe I'm so lousy a dancer I want my movements to go unnoticed  ;D

I remember a good friend of mine from the revival days always wore red socks, it was pretty usual those days (as were white socks).

So long as it's only two shades of grey and not fifty...  ;)

Yes , I recall you saying once you literally have hundreds of socks and the ones l seen look good , especially of the verticle stripe variety.
I don't do red shoes either I have oxblood Sebago's and I have oxblood boots of course . I do remember the white socks thing that went on in the 8ts but the only white socks l have now are for cycling in , of course. I don't even wear white socks with my kilt now. . 8)

That BB number looks very nice, Mike. I like double breasted coats but with my height I'm afraid I can't get away with them  :-\

Sorry, I meant socks, not shoes, to me red shoes are something out of The Wizard of Oz or a 70s blaxploitation movie really. Well, tbh hundreds of socks would be a bit of an overstatement, 30 pairs would be closer to the truth.  But white socks I do wear, usually with very casual clobber (for instance, Jack Purcells, chinos & a t-shirt)

In this country , white socks became a bit of a no go area. . :)
