Socks and Stripes - Alfredo Gonzales

100 pesos and a donkey

Earn your stripes 

Urban legend has it that Alfredo Gonzales won 100 pesos and a donkey in a drinking contest – which was enough to get him to New York to start a new life. He landed a job in a sock factory and as soon as the Mexican started customizing the factory socks with little buttons he found on the street, he found himself to be something of a sensation. This box set features five pairs of socks with designs inspired the things that Alfredo loves most about the States. He’s even called one pair Optimism.
