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!

    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!
