NY shop owner 'socks it to 'em'
Marty Rosen loves socks, just not those who buy them. The owner of a Manhattan sock shop says his title of the grumpiest sock man in New York City does not bother him, pointing out to the Daily News: "I have my moments".

Actress and sock lover Chloe Sevigny is just one of those to have Mr Rosen 'sock it to them' when browsing the New York store.

She says she "loves" the place but thinks the owner is "the grumpiest man on earth".

He doesn't blow the socks off his employees either - one says he eats their lunches and attempts to sell any personal items they leave in the shop.

Anyone out shopping for legwear to keep them warm in the current climate should opt for knee-high socks, suggests Jennifer Fong of Canwest.

They offer both form and function, she explains - keeping legs warm but also being fashionable.

Socks make the perfect gift
