Profile

Chicago born brothers Vincent and Theodore Nasserbakht have shirting and suit-making in their blood—they descend from a line of tailors—but they decided to focus on just the legs for their first retail venture. Behind the black and white record store-esque exterior is a neatly displayed archive of all manner of local and imported socks and hosiery. Despite the masculine decor (stock is displayed among toolboxes, a ladder, and workshop-style shelves; the counter is a workbench) there are items for both men and women. Female hosiery fetishists can find cashmere and silk tights from Maria La Rosa, vintage (never worn) thigh-high stockings with a back seam, and glossy Falke tights in bright pink or fennel. The men’s collection boasts a wide selection of casual and professional toe warmers that includes bold, cotton, striped Swedish Happy Socks and geometric patterned items by Henrik Vibskov. Among the sea of socks there is also a range of accessories such as American-made leather bags and satchels, designer scarves, and umbrellas. And the brothers keep the family tailoring tradition alive via bespoke shirts made with unique fabric sourced from the garment district.
