The Statement Sock
The Guardian has an article in it today about the men’s fashion microtrend for statement socks – far better than ‘mankles’, the trendy term for wearing shoes with no socks, a statement socks actually says something positive about you.
It allows you to express something of your true personality through a splash of colour or distinctive design, and it’s a lot more comfortable than wearing leather shoes with sweaty bare feet.
Our recommendation would be socks from Pantherella which we stock in Milsom Street, Bath and John Smedley which we have in Bath but also available online. We also stock Pantherella ‘invisible socks’ in store so that you can have that ‘mankle’ look without the discomfort!
We have both subtle and vibrant designs to suit your mood and the occasion, and in cotton/linen mixes and soft merino wool.
