While it may have at one time been acceptable to exclusively stock your drawer with white athletic socks on one side and black and navy dress socks on the other, with so many amazing options on the market, we highly recommend upgrading your sock game. New designs now flood the market, so embrace all of your options, and let’s see some personality under that skinny suit or cropped jeans.
For your cheeky or nostalgic side, outfit your feet with some T-Rex socks by Topman, or a space age pair from Sock It To Me. Alternatively, if sports socks are more of what you feel, you can’t beat the high quality products coming out of Stance.
But if you’re looking for a dress sock feel with a sportier look, there’s no one better than American Trench. With an entire line that is American-made, not only are the socks you pick up produced stateside, but so are the coats, tees and jeans, making this one brand we will proudly stand behind.
No matter what you decide to put on in the morning, may your options be plentiful, and provide a new opportunity to express your mood, vibe, favorite past time or even political party.
