The Fall of Rome.
Pacificity. Hedonism. These are two reasons for the fall of the great empire.
It is said that the Romans may have worn socks.
Ah… the third reason.
We can’t live without socks, can we? They’ve softened us up, made our feet tender and fragile. There was a time when we walked barefoot over rocks and sticks, our feet leathery and impenetrable. I know… how ghastly.
Empire Socks (No. 5677). Colorful, dashing, and only moderately hedonistic. 85% cotton, 15% nylon. 12” from heel to top of sock. Excellent for shuffling around the country house or livening up your favorite suit. Made in England.
