Men's Argyle Socks

The Argyle pattern, thought to be derived from a Scottish plaid, became popular first in Britain during the 1920s for the sporty long stockings worn with "plus-fours" trousers. The diamond pattern on the leg is knitted flat, using the intarsia technique; the lines of diagonal stitches may be knitted in or embroidered on afterwards.
