Via Dervala, I found 10socks, a site that sells boxes of 10 pairs of numbered socks, all of the same colour. Why are they numbered if they’re all the same colour? I’m not really sure, but the very absurdness of it really appealed to me. So, a box of twenty black socks is winging its way from Denmark to my door. I will report back on quality and comfort when they arrive. If they pass muster, I’m never buying dress socks in a shop again. If not, they’ll make excellent gifts for my friends.
What art thou that usurp’st this time of night,
Together with that fair and warlike form
In which the majesty of buried Denmark
Did sometimes march?
Lo, tis pair #4, worn with capri pants and steeled determination.
