Terrible smell not included
You wouldn't expect anything Crayon Shin-chan themed to be safe for work... but here we are.
Small Planet Co. has released a surprisingly stylish pair of men's socks, embroidered with the face of Shinnosuke's dad Hiroshi. The navy socks with gray heel and toe are designed to go well with men's business suits.
What exactly Hiroshi has to do with socks, fans of Crayon Shin-chan will know all too well: his smell terrible!
Fortunately, the embroidery is where the branding ends. The worst thing the socks are likely to smell of is the plastic packaging. What you do with them after you buy them is up to you, though.
The socks are 580 yen per pair from Small Planet's online shop.
