(Newser) – They were hard to miss, really—the pink socks worn by George HW Bush at today's dedication of his son's presidential library. A sartorial slip by the 88-year-old? Nope, loud socks are becoming his signature style, reports Today.com, which notes that he busted out red-white-and-blue ones earlier this month. At this point, it's a safe bet he'll be wearing a similar pair whenever he's in public, notes this story in the Houston Chronicle from last year. And visitors to his office in Houston might well leave with a bright pair instead of, say, cuff links. Twitchy rounds up some of the tweets praising today's choice.
