A unique brand of socks that gets its inspiration from one of Man's greatest passions, a tribute to some of the greatest motorsport icons ever raced.

The 191 - originally called 911 - was the first car Jordan Grand Prix developed in 1991, a Cosworth-powered F1 from the rookie team lead by Eddie Jordan - the only Irish F1 programme ever. Eddie was not a conventional man and didn't go about getting things done in a conventional way. But, thanks to his unorthodox salesmanship he was able to enrol sponsors like 7UP and Fujifilm right from the start.

Of course naming anything car-related "911" will bring an army of Porsche lawyers to your doorstep - legend has it that Eddie only agreed to change the name to 191 after getting a free 911 Carrera out of the deal.

This was also the car in which Michael Schumacher made his stunning Spa debut - and was after that swiftly grabbed by Benetton - due to the untimely retirement of Jordan pilot Bernard Gachot. And by retirement we mean he served actual jail time that forced him to miss several Grand Prix's for a 'disagreement' with a London cab driver.

“Alain Prost gave us the best compliment of all that year. One day he said the one car that was impressive to follow through a corner was the Jordan. The car was just glued to the track.” 

- Mark Gallagher, Jordan's Marketing Director
