George Washington Men's Crew Sock

$ 10.00
The father of our country and the first President makes his way onto a patriotic and stately pair of crew socks! Inspired by The Athenaeum, a portrait painted by Gilbert Stuart. Stuart first painted George Washington in 1795. That painting was so successful that Martha Washington “wished a Portrait for herself.” She persuaded her husband to sit again for Stuart “on the express condition that when finished it should be hers.” Stuart, however, did not want to part with the picture and left it unfinished so that he could refer to it when producing future commissions.  This painting served as the basis for the engraving of Washington that appears on the one-dollar bill. We cannot tell a lie – these fine art socks are a great gift for the history buff. Fits men's shoe size 6-12.5. Content: 56% cotton, 22% nylon, 20% polyester, 2% spandex.
