Those of us who spent decades wearing dresses and skirts lamenting that we were down to using a pair of ‘nylons’ with runs or none at all feel his pain.

I think even the likes of Dollar Generals and Family Dollars stores, both of which there’s a ton of locations in Springfield, sell socks and other basic clothing, if in a pinch. Same with Walmart too. Including some socks that can be conceived as “dress socks” but maybe aren’t.
It was a while ago, but I was in Springfield for an association lobby day. Upstairs in my room before 8 a.m. at the Hilton, suiting up so I could speak at 10ish. Bend over to put my socks on and r-i-i-i-i-p goes my suit pants. There used to be a tailor in the shops downstairs and so I headed down, with my suit jacket serving as concealment, got the tailor’s number from the desk, he came right over and sewed me right up. Clothing mishaps, don’t let it ruin your day!
