I like very flashy socks. But it is just so hard to find good ones. The only company I know that ever comes through is Missoni, but they usually only have a few designs per season, and they sell out quickly. And they're $50 a pair. At most other places, the socks usually suck, for various reasons, including: they are ankle length (god, what human would wear such a thing?), they are cheesily printed, they are cheap cotton (as opposed to a nice textured weave, or good wool). Paul Smith suffers from the first of these. Sometimes Barney's has nice ones, but usually only one or two designs, and then that flat cotton thing. P**l S****t often has a decent selection of decent socks, but they're never quite flashy enough. Etro are certainly flashy, but are usually anklets. Anyone? I've tried searching online, but have found only $3.95 novelty things. I can't be alone in this.
