The sock has recently become a fashion accessory, a quick growth of new sock brands has created a new market where the sock has become an important part of the outfit. Happy Socks was one of the first brands in Scandinavia to create something new and unique with the sock. Correctly matched with your other outfit the sock can take your outfit to another level. A thumb rule is that the sock should have the same color as your other clothes and accessories. When dress code is black or dark suit the color of the sock should be identical to the suit. For tuxedo the sock should preferably be a black silk sock, it is very important the sock is high up on the calf since no skin should be visible.
Socks – Fabric / Material
A qualitative sock should be made of cotton or wool or a mix of both. Cheaper socks made of synthetic fabrics such as polyester should be avoided since this fabric lacks ability to breath, which creates a bad environment for the foot. One of the top premium brands when it comes to socks is the German brand Falke. They are market leaders when it comes to high quality socks. They use a high level of top quality wool and cotton, which gives the sock great breathing abilities. Falke’s socks have a tailored fit to perfectly fit your foot. The price is nearly the double, but in the long run you will get value for your money since they will last for more washes.
