    Argyle Tops

    I really like the (2014?) style of self-coloured hose with Argyle tops (in Ancient Scott, Modern Scott, or Hunting Scott). They were "elegantly understated," for times when the full-on tartan hose would be a bit too much. I'm having trouble finding the Ancient Scott pattern Argyle top hose online (most vendors are understandably out of stock). Are there any plans to make such striking, yet subtle, pattern-top hose again in the future? Thanks!

    Just wondering if you received the hose yet? I'm wondering what they would look like with the Armstrong tartan.

    I have received them. They look grand. Next planned wear will be at Burns Night this January and I'll be sure to get pics.
