EVERY YEAR I’M GIVEN SOCKS FOR CHRISTMAS. HOW DO I TELL PEOPLE I’M DONE WITH THEM?

Ah yes, trusty socks. Sitting slightly above gift vouchers on the spectrum of lazy, last-minute purchases, few things say ‘I couldn’t care less’ like a pair of socks. Still, having a decent arsenal at your disposal is a blessing because not only were they free, they’re also a great way to add personality to a suit, without having to wear anything too crazy. Besides, things could be worse – Phil Collins just re-released a bunch of albums, so you’ve dodged a bullet there.
