“Life’s too short for boring socks!”

This is a familiar refrain commonly heard from my stepdad. A lawyer, destined for a life of conservative dressing in black or navy suits each day, he has a pretty admirable collection of colorful and patterned socks. I always loved the thought of him sitting in a courtroom will just a subtle reveal of a polkadot or bright yellow sock…

These Henrik Vibskov socks toe the line (see what I did there?!) in monochromatic tones of black and white but with a really fun design! Even cute layered over tights with black brogues and a skirt, or with sneakers and a cuffed jean.

What’s your sock policy?

Socks, Henrik Vibskov.

  • So glad you asked! Socks were definitely under our Christmas tree this year. Both sons got a pair that were made in Australia from the Wool Museum (in Geelong). And, as it turns out, older son, a trumpet player who lives in Brooklyn shares my affinity for well made and beautifully designed socks. Hey, if your feet don’t feel good, you don’t feel good either.

  • Socks are mainly a practical need for me. I’d be barefoot all the time if I could! :)

  • here here, me too!

  • My sock policy is the warmer the better. It is full on winter in Toronto.

    Elles sont nettoyage à sec seulement! C’est une blague?!

  • Il y a quelques années, c’étaient les chaussettes que je portais à la maison :)
    mais il est vrai que maintenant on peut sortir avec sans être gêné par les regards des gens pour 2 raisons:
    – à Paris personne ne te regarde (sauf si tu n’es pas extrêmement extravagant)
    – plus tu es différent mieux c’est :)

  • Socks are where my personality comes through: there are no boundaries. Many people have commented on my socks since I was in elementary school, including my middle school physical education teacher who told me I had to wear white socks because the gym was not a runway. FYI: I have never worn a pair of plain white socks in my life, and I do not think I ever will.

  • You’re right. Life is too short for boring socks!
