Cigarette Socks by Ashi Dashi

I want to preface this post by saying that if you send me something there is no guarantee I will write about it. I only write about what I like, and I receive a lot of product that I don’t mention on this site. Save yourself money by emailing me first! End rant. Ken runs a little sock company out of his apartment in Brooklyn, called Ashi Dashi. I love these ones he sent over that look like cigarettes!

  • Those are awesome!! I really really love the cigarette socks! Where can I get these?

  • haha… nevermind found them!

  • Waow! They’re so kitsch and cute, and they look really snuggly. They make me glad it’s almost winter in Australia, I’m dreaming of hot coffee and these cigarettes.

    I like the pencil socks! The intestines are a little creepy – but pretty if you forget what they are supposed to be!
