    I have been lurking in the background for a while and finding great answers to almost every question of which I can think. Save one - Are there good places online to buy bright socks with or without interesting designs that are over the Calf? Ben Silver is the only source I have found thus far. Thanks in advance.

    Was discussed recently, here or on Andy's. Tyrwhitt has some, STP sometimes has some, I'm sure there are others. Bright socks tend to get discounted because they don't sell quickly.

    Paul Stuart. Harvie & Hudson (you can also phone T&A, N&L, etc.) Vivre.com may have some. Ovadafut, too.

    Downtime,
    Thanks for stopping by the store today. I have a penchant for socks, especially the bright and unusual, I'm known for my yellow fixation. My wife thinks I'm nuts for stocking so many but we have a following in that category as well as others.
    We stock Marcolini, Bresciani and Greyson Reade for those that are interested.

    Best Regards,

    Gary

    Alexander Kabbaz sells almost the entire Pantherella line including wonderful colors. www.customshirt1.com. Everyone will agree he is quite a character.
    Richard James socks -- at Barneys and Mitchells in the States -- they started offering OTC socks in their incredible colors.
    Turnbull & Asser in NYC sells rebranded Pantherellas in excellent colors
    Charvet at Bergdorf Goodman
    Woods of Shropshire online -- wonderful service and prices -- great Pantherellas including some handpainted socks (!!!!!). They will take off VAT from their reasonable (for Pantherella) prices and shipping is relatively low.

    I looked at stroke socks a while ago, but they are made of nylon or something. Not cotton, not wool, not appealing.

    Thank you all for your direction. On a whim I stopped by Drinkwater's and they have some fantastic offerings if you don't think your socks should match your pants...

    Sounds good. Do you stock OTC in groovy colors (pink, etc)? Do you do mail order? What is the price range? Thanks.
