Inspired by a necktie worn by the character Tony Wendice in Dial M for Murder (1954), these socks are elegant and charming. That’s where the similarity between these two things ends—they definitely won’t ask you to kill their wife with a smile and a glass of brandy!

The ribbing incorporated into the leg pattern will hug the leg for excellent fit.
