Christmas Wish List: Socks

Some people moan about only getting socks for Christmas. Me? I love them, especially if they look like this lot.

They certainly beat another Lynx boxset



Everybody knows that, the older you get, the chances increase of receiving nothing but socks and chocolates for Christmas. Or, if you've been a really good lad, maybe a bottle of Jack or Jim. Well, who said that's a bad thing? as I get older I actually don't mind socks, in fact I love 'em, the more colourful and crazy the better. I won't even leave the house nowadays unless my wheels are covered in some dead cool, colourful socks - striped are also a preference. The classic Burlington argyle are a long term fave, but check out the Solmate socks below, made from recycled old t-shirts and stuff, ground down and re-spun, they might look a bit like something Timmy Mallet goes hiking in, but they are super, super toasty.
