Paul Smith socks are one of my obsessions. every time i get a chance (see them in a store or happen by a paul smith) i pick up a couple pairs. i basically wear them non-stop until they bust through the toes and heels. And then i still keep them as back up. recently i had to weed out my sock drawer because it was getting a little silly. And it hurt to see some of the best patterns go. As far as i have found, nobody comes up with better color combinations and stripes. But J.Crew is starting to catch on.
