Mama owns her baby weight in Jimmy Choos, so it’s no surprise baby’s sock drawer is bursting at the seams.
Clear out another: Etiquette Clothiers, a company dedicated to perfecting dressing basics like socks, is coming to town.
The line includes well-considered underthings and footwear for grown-ups, but it’s the baby socks that have us smiling from ankle dimples to toes.
Think simple solids and stripes with contrasting trims in an array of punchy colors. Baby sizes come in six-pair bundles, kids sizes in complementary two-pair sleeves. And thanks to combed-cotton construction, flat-toe seeming, and a steam-and-press pretreatment, each pair is softer than soft.
Bet you’ll be glad to find these socks in the city.
Available at Shoofly, 42 Hudson Street, between Duane and Thomas Streets (212-406-3270); Lucky Wang, 799 Broadway, at East 11th Street (212-353-2850); 82 Seventh Avenue, between 15th and 16th Streets (212-229-2900), $16-$30. To see styles, go to etiquetteclothiers.com.
