Socks, My new Love!
You think it would go hand in hand with undies, but for me it’s been a recent thing I have added to my underwear love. Socks have come into their own in the last year or so. The world of socks has EXPLODED. When you used to go to the department store to find just black, brown, maybe grey and white. All pretty basic and rarely did you find something fun.
Flash forward to 2014 and Frank Dandy has released a whole line of Bamboo Socks. I got the chance to try them and to be honest I wasn’t expecting too much. I mean, it just seemed to me that “they were just socks.” I”m a simple guy and usually wear white ankle socks or longer athletic sock. This will change after trying these.
First thing is the bamboo fabric just felt amazing. Better than any cotton or nylon sock I have tried before. They were comfortable and breathed like no other sock I have had before. It felt like I wasn’t wearing socks at all.
The next thing that I loved was the color. I realized that I can now wear them to match my shirt or even undies. Usually when I wear a suit I try to match the underwear with my tie. I know some of you are going, why bother but others our there get it. I don’t always do it but I try too! Now throw in socks you can add a whole new level of matching. I wore the red ones with my blue high top Chuck Taylors. Which really set the shoes off.
Socks are moving to the forefront of men’s fashion. Frank Dandy just has solids but other markers are doing patterns, polka dots or stripes in super fun colors. So you can show more personality with your socks in a way you can’t do with underwear. I say this because very few people see your underwear but more can and will see your socks. It’s Super fun.
