File Under H For Hosiery


Last night I attended an event held at “the lodge,” a funky townhouse in the distinguished Upper East Side environs of Fifth Avene and 77th Street. It’s the showroom for the brand VK Nagrani, which caters to “alpha males,” or jet-setters with money to burn.

But it also caters to another jet-setter whose aircraft was none other than Air Force One. VK Nagrani began as a sock brand, and George Bush, who’s taken to wild socks in his old age, is one of the brand’s most distinguished fans, as Town & Country reports. Nagrani has even made a special sock just for him with the presidential seal.

Those of you who crave more options in over-the-calf hosiery should check these out.

And H doesn’t just stand for hosiery. The showroom’s sock display case is an old card catalog salvaged from Harvard. — CC

    I thought gentlemen’s socks only came in black or navy, with the occasional argyle for wild weekends.

    One of my favorite comments ever.

  3. Looks & sounds a bit too Eye-talian for my taste.

  4. I thought black socks were for motorcycle boots. 😉

    The black socks are for black tie, right? A gentleman would presumably be in evening clothes at least once a week, if not every night for supper.

  7. I have one of those library card catalogues, picked up from a local college library. I use it to house part of my philatelic collection. The drawers are perfect for the stamps that are stored in small stock cards.
