Pearl gray socks, that's the ticket. And they are new on the ASW store this week in a luxurious blend of cashmere and New Zealand wool that is ideal for weekends around your own home or, like Mr. Grant, someone else's. Also in beige and a particularly nice version of plum, and joined by two other new styles of wool dress hose including ribbed solid color stuff and Super 140s with clocks.
In addition, by the way, if you are headed out of doors and the temperature is cooling off, you might also take a look at my two new quilted waistcoats. Waistcoats or gilets worn over a sweater keep your core warm while leaving the arms free for raising a gun, swinging a club or just carrying a little something in from the car. And, this being A Suitable Wardrobe, these are not ordinary waistcoats. One of them is dark green Belsetta, the wind and water resistant wonder fiber with a suede-like texture. The other is dark brown suede, also with a suede-like texture. Both have orange wool linings and a plethora of pockets and you can't go wrong with either of them.
