Well, folks, it’s official: it’s no longer enough for all of your other clothes to be ripped to shreds this season, now even your socks have to look like they’ve spent 20 years lurking at the back of a drawer, before being chewed vigorously by the dog.
Rather than just wear an ACTUAL old, tattered pair of socks, it’s also necessary to buy a brand, spanking new pair, that have been made to LOOK old and tattered. Because that makes sense, totally.
In the defence of Free People, who are selling these socks, they are only charging $10.86 for these (Comme des Garcons would probably charge ten times that), but even so, would you pay to look like your socks are in need of a good darning/ditching? If so, you can buy them here.
