Sock garters remind me of characters in a BBC Hercule Poirot production.
I imagine an Englishman standing around in his undershirt and underwear wearing socks with garters.
Sock garters were used to keep men's socks up before the use of elastic became prevelent.
You can purchase these dead stock sock garters over at Vintage Martini
