What should you do with those odd socks that drive you mad? You know, the leftover halves of pairs that have vanished inexplicably in the laundry. "You should dispose of them and buy a new pair," says 32-year-old, sock magnate Sophie Mirman. "They are absolutely not a trend that will catch on." The Anglo-French Mirman has more than a passing interest in the matter. She is chairman and co-founder of Sock Shop International PLC, a chain of specialty stores that sell socks of almost every sort.

Newly rich tycoons from industry, real estate and entertainment are elbowing most aristocratic old money aside in Britain's booming billionaire stakes. Queen Elizabeth is comfortably ahead of the field as the holder of the country's biggest personal fortune, but a survey says self-made entrepreneurs form the bulk of at least 20,000 millionaires in Britain.
