Ask Design Mom — Striped Socks

February 8, 2010

Ask-Design-Mom-Question:
I am having a hard time finding some really cool striped socks for my husband. Any suggestions? Thanks. — Candace.

Design Mom Answer:
Thanks for your question, Candace! Stripey socks make me happy. I went straight to Ben Blair for suggestions and he sent me to Smart Turnout and JCrew for good-looking, colorful choices. Also, I noticed in a recent issue of GQ, Glenn O’Brien, the style guy, recommends both J. Press and Corgi.

Dear Readers, let’s help Candace out. Do you have any terrific striped sock sources?

Sock It To Me is all about stripes (they sell at Sock Dreams, too… per another person's post). For her and him. :)

Absolutely. Happy Socks. I ordered some for my husband for Christmas. Fun colours and patters, and good quality all for $10-15/pair.

My husbands cousin, who loves socks says Banana Republic is a great place to find fun socks for men.

I got my husband 13 pairs of socks for Christmas (go big or go home, right?) and got them all from Sock Dreams and H&M.; He loves them all!

K Bell Socks! http://www.kbellsocks.com Cute stuff, although I'm thinking for women. They do sell men's stuff too.

For those living in Europe, I highly recommend HEMA. It's like a Dutch Target – great design, affordable price.
