Does Your Man Have Thin Calves? Force Him To Wear Wondersocks!

How often have you looked at a man and thought, Hmm, his calves are so wispy, how does he stand on such thin and branch-like legs? I know, it happens all the time, right? Given the immense problem of lack of robust calves, it’s wonderful that designer Herbert Lipah — who runs a second-hand lederhosen shop in Munich, Germany — has decided to tackle the problem head on.
