    Don't know. Is there really a difference?
    Simple visual differences: benchgrade has "open stitches" on the sole (like my Greve's) and the inner sole (if that's the correct term; where you put your foot on) consists of two parts, not one, like in a handgrade.

    I wear these (the bottom pair) for a little fun on the weekend every once in a while. I was trying to adjust my camera when it unexpectedly took this picture, but I sort of like the results

    If I checked correctly, it's a 337, like the Belgrave and the Savile (dark brown monk in my pic). Nice last, by Dimitri Gomez (C&J Paris).

    Not serious. I don't understand the comment/joke. Is there some history around these socks that I should be remembering?
