I S*** you not, I have the same pair, given as a gift, which I received at an outdoor party where we were drinking Mexican beer. I had to look at this picture a few times to make sure I was not related to anyone in the shot. [They have yet to be worn other than that night.]

BTW - They were referred to, at the time, as Businessman Toe Socks, and I was told that Koreans are wild about them.

Businessman Toe Socks: Textbook example of inherent contradiction.

Koreans are wild about them: Why does this not surprise me?
Perhaps they would pay a steep premium for a genuine used pair.

Bonus points if you figure out how to sell them from a streetside vending machine...

Perfectly appropriate for the medical profession, e.g., Dr. Seuss.

Much to has chagrin, he had somehow stumbled upon a great many listings for used socks on eBay. These were obviously for fetishists: descriptions like "used filthy sweat sock, guaranteed unwashed!" were rampant. Most of the socks were singles or mismatched sets. Most (but not all) of the bidders were Japanese, Korean, or confidential.

I have not since looked for such a thing on eBay. The RLPL thong and the Sulka swimming shorts were disturbing enough.

EDIT: The fact that this student was a Saudi -- and one from the extremely conservative city of Ryyad at that -- made the entire situation even funnier or more uncomfortable, depending on your point of view.
