Happy Birthday to My BIL


socks and books

Every year we give my brother-in-law Ekim argyle socks for his birthday. He just loves argyle! And grey/silver and maroon/burgundy are his favorite colors. Last year I was able to find some really fun-colored socks (think the ol' bright green golf pants that we used to see around).

Then I found an iris farm in Texas by the name of Argyle Acres.

I emailed them and got a GREY sweatshirt with their logo on it. Just too perfect!!
So, I find myself at this time of year, with a birthday and xmas coming, on the look-out for anything argyle. Socks aren't always as available as one would think, but I do like to find something other than more socks.

BTW, actonbell - what size sweater does he wear? I was at Penney's the other day ....

Mrs. THC recently bought a nice argyle necktie for me--very handsome.

Just checking: You're sure he loves argyle socks, right?

LOL. Yeah, Doug, this man is Consistent to the max, and with a capital "C".

Of course he loves beer more. Just sayin'.

Happy Birthday, Ekim! I'm making the birthday wish rounds. Dddragon, I think the argyle socks is a BIL thing, as mine loves them too.

I seriously don´t know anyone that loves those kinda socks...
But each to his own! A friend of mine collects suits and ties. So on his birthday I give him ties...usually he doesn´t like them. But I rather give him bad ties than more expensive suits :)

I like argyle socks. I have no idea why.

I would pass on an argyle tie. Ties should have spots, stripes, a simple solid color, paslies, or whatever - just not argyle.

How sweet you are, with the argyle socks! If I were there, I'd bring him a case of Beck's.

You are all so sweet! Ekim did lurk around and see his birthday wishes, btw:)
I'd get him a size L sweater,too

Happy Friday!!

A man can never have enough argyle socks. I've got tons of them - they're great.
