Funny you should say that. The original plan was to wear a pair of1920s knicker socks (see below), but I couldn't get them in time for last Saturday's event:
Plan "B" was to get hold of a pair of lovat blue kilt socks that would match my lovat blue wool necktie. Unfortunately, L.A.'s one and only kilt store was out of lovat blue socks:
Plan "C" was to find a pair of beige long socks with flecks of lovat blue and orange (among other colors). Luckily, American Apparel had 'em. Apparently, they were good enough for the Prince of Wales too:

Some great British suits on here!
This is a CC41 Hepworths suit that I wear quite often for gigs and work. Style on rations! Fantastic, hard wearing fabric, even the moths won't eat it!
I have five of these 1940s suits in total. I love the blue pinstripe fabric. I've included a swatch showing a comparison between several subtly different pinstripe designs.
Here's a nice drawing from Montague Burtons 1938 catalogue:
I have the whole catalugue, I will upload it all at some point!
Some great pinstripes there. It interesting all the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) pinstripe variations there used to be compared to what we commonly see today.
"His modest resources meant that he could dress no more than reasonably well, but he did so with a kind of faded elegance that ignored the dictates of fashion... the overall effect was of someone frozen in time, indifferent to the new fashions of the agitated age he was living through. The truth is that he took pleasure in this, for obscure reasons that perhaps even he could not have explained."
