Irving is a sock pattern inspired by the 1920’s. Classic Art Deco motifs give the design a vintage and luxurious flair. It gets its name from Irving Place, a historic neighborhood in New York City and home to NYC’s oldest saloon—Pete’s Tavern—where O. Henry’s The Gift of the Magi was conceived, and which survived Prohibition disguised as a flower shop!
