Gentlemen, the days are getting longer, and the temperature is rising. This means that one’s pant hem will probably be rising as well, due either to rolling or a trip to the tailor. You are now faced with a dilemma: Will you wear socks, or will you not? If you are of the former persuasion (to each his own), the type of socks worn become that much more crucial. They are a way to show personality, and a way to have fun. I propose that socks can be judged the same way as diamonds: Color, Cut and Clarity. And the socks from newcomer Richer Poorer score high marks in all three categories.
