Hosiery is the latest accessory to punch up a navy suit or add flair to a weekend look. Richard James, the famed Savile Row designer, offers an eclectic mix of bold colors and geometric designs in mercerized cotton, Lisle yarns, and merino wool. He also offers a more modest selection of solids and classic colors. For the intrepid dresser, hosiery ranges from $35 to $125. Contact the British Apparel Collection at 212-218-6521.
