Summer sale - socks!

Summer sale Jermyn St

When I was in London the last week of June, the men's shops on Jermyn St had numerous sales. For socks, New & Lingwood and Hilditch & Key seemed to have the most selection and variety. Turnbull & Asser had an excellent selection of handkerchiefs, pocket squares and small leather goods accessories on sale. The socks I bought are certainly colorful, esp. the red and orange ones. I'm still thinking about the right occasion to wear them beyond Halloween or a Princeton home game.
