George Bush shows more snazzy socks

As George H.W. Bush returned to the White House this week all eyes were firmly on the former president's footwear.

The 41st president, who was recently spotted in Superman socks, pulled on a snazzy red and white striped pair for a reception at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Bush's penchant for patterned socks is well known and his son Neil has described him as a "style setter".

Last month the George H.W. Bush Library Foundation in Texas urged Americans to pull on a pair of wacky socks to celebrate his 89th birthday.

President Bush and wife Barbara joined Barack and Michelle Obama to commemorate the 5,000th award of the Daily Point of Light Award, which was set up following Bush's inauguration in 1989.

"It's like coming home for Barbara and me with the rest of you just coming to this magnificent house and being greeted by this superb hospitality knows no bounds," Bush said.
