What is not to love about knee socks? So sporty and unexpected. So sleek and practical.
I especially like them with short shorts (or, here, briefs), so they can highlight a maximal expanse of thigh. Of course they highlight the knee as well, that bizarre, oft-ignored component of anatomy, making them completely distinct in silhouette from their close cousin, the thigh-high. I slightly prefer the knee-high length, perhaps because my legs are not especially long (not short, not long) and there is a lengthening effect on the upper leg joint when it is isolated from hip to knee. That and I just like them. [And I’ve watched a few too many kpop videos.]
They keep your legs warm, too. Sadly still relevant here in Cambridge.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I was on vacation in San Francisco the week before last and sick last week. Hope to get back on schedule soon!
