Gentlemen's Hunting Socks

Regular price $6.50 $0.00
During the Regency era in England, hunting had become the sport of gentlemen, and nearly all of Jane Austen's heroes hunt in some manner or other. Captain Wentworth and Charles Musgrove hunt while in Somerset; Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley return to Netherfield to hunt; and the list could go on and on. These bicolored socks in shades of field and forest were designed with masculine hunting parties in mind.
