Yeah, red socks. W indeed TF? We are taking them to a charity shop, as seems wrong to bin them, but why on earth would anyone think that was a good idea? F'ing weird, man.

Let's take them to Red Cross. Plastic gloves would be more appropriate.

And I notice that they think only men buy/sell houses - the socks are size 6-11. I'm going to drop them through S & P's letterbox and I recommend that everyone does

The average shoe size for UK women is now 6.5, so I think those socks are gender free!

@Non feminist, it was only a joke! Good grief. (And ACT is naturally right, but I happen to have small feet.) But please note that I'm sending the sox back to S & P because I think it's crass advertising, not because of any gender bias. Must compose my posts better in future....

Next year we will be sending jodpers as the feedback from the socks was not quite as good as expected. Hopefully they will go down well.

Presumably they only send to high value properties as they don't deal with " affordable homes" do they?

I usually dislike with a vengeance all the advertising garb that comes through my letter box, but these Red (Labour) Socks were quite a pleasant surprise & they're 70% cotton no less!
One can't go wrong with a pair of socks?
The Strutt & Parker logo is printed where nobody can see it & it will soon wear off.
