Description: Every picture tells a story...
So basically - 3 designs for men and one in smaller sizes for "girls" (women).

"Wide Ribbed Socks" (Nylox 3ply); "Cable Tops for the Country Girl" (Nylox 4ply); "Fisherman's Wading Socks" (Capstan Aran); and "Rib Panel Socks for the Office" (Nylox 4ply) - and I'm guessing the latter are for men as (a) there's a pipe, and (b) women don't go to work - obviously - well, not in offices anyway.
