Smile Spreading Socks

Socks are a daily essential but not usually given much thought as part of an outfit. Men’s business apparel is typically a simple ensemble of limited, neutral color. You might be thinking, ¬-that doesn’t have to be the case, that is a choice. Yes, there are some bright colors and patterns in men’s business wear, but it is not typically a wise choice for formal business settings. One place where men can always get away with some fun is socks. Happy Socks was founded in 2008 by Mikael Söderlindh and Viktor Tell in Sweden. The design-centric company is big on collaboration, my personal favorite is the Andy Warhol collection. Other collaborations include Iris Apfel, Steve Soki, Robert Rodriguex, Wiz Kahalif and 10 Corso Como. I would like to see collaborations with current artists from Happy Socks in the furture. If you want to spread a few smiles with Happy Socks, make use of their student discount while you still can.

    I love socks that are colorful and fun, and you make a great point about mens business apparel being somewhat bland in order to make a good impression on coworkers, clients or superiors. Though many people love to wear colorful clothing and diverge from the neutral colored norm. Having socks that are colorful are definitely a great solution to express yourself creatively and its very sneaky!

    Personally, I’ve seen plenty of different sock print designs that range in pattern, subject, and color, all with a different appeal; this trend has become a fun and creative way to express oneself!

    The Swedes strike again! Sweden has a very good track record of designing things that appeal to such a wide variety of people and cultures. From furniture to warplanes to socks, they do it all. Cool company, I have not heard of them before this post.
