Perhaps the hardest to find accessory shown in the Apparel Arts illustrations from what some think of as the golden age are hoop striped dress socks. Oh, there are one size fits all casual socks in a plethora of colors, but something suitable for wear with tailored clothing is a lot rarer on the ground.
I am thinking of over the calf merino wool in classic colorways. Dark green on cream like the socks in the illustrations would be one, if only to pay homage. Dark red on light gray perhaps, and navy on light blue and dark gray on mid gray as well. What else?
