Men's funky footwear 'the new tie'
One Canadian man has taken to designing funky foot wear especially for men, it has been revealed.

Edward Nagy, who works at Health Canada by day, has created a bold line of men's socks in a market that rarely deviates from black, brown and grey, reports the Vancouver Sun.

Nagy draws designs on a piece of paper and sends it off to be digitized in Turkey, where a sample sock is produced. If he likes the look of the footwear, he places an order.

"The sock is the new tie," he told the newspaper. "The difference is, you don't need a tie, but you have to have socks. If you can have a bit of fun or express yourself through your socks, that's wonderful."

This comes after the Express reported that Oscar-winning actress Dame Helen Mirren confessed she loves nothing better than darning her husband's socks.

She added that she loves a bargain and often buys clothes in the sale and fake jewels, as everyone assumes they are real.
