Well, if you've stepped out amongst the Soho-cialities recently, you'll have realised that over-the-knee socks are now an essential part of the trendies Wardour-robe. These tasty items are literally running out of the shop at Boy in Old Compton Street, who stock all manner of OTKs, from lurid lurex to fur and feather-topped versions. Prices start at very affordable pounds 4.99 and you can purchase a really extravagant pair for under a tenner.
