Title

The "Gradient" Patient Cycle and Golf Hose

Subject

socks, men and boys, thin feet,

Description

This is an advertisement for men and boys trying to get them to buy a pair of socks that makes their feet look thin with graduated legs. This gives us insight to what people viewed as fashionable and attractive. It does not show how the socks are supposed to be worn, butt it shows an image of what they would possibly look like on a person. They have a sock with a decorative pattern at the top, with a plain, ribbed design down the rest of the sock. It specifically says these socks are for men and boys, and that it is attractive to have thin feet with graduated legs.
