The Gentleman’s Guide To Below-The-Knee Presentations

The curious art of assembling colour and fabric beneath the knee needn’t be an eternal conundrum. It should be simple, like a fine pair of socks. You can tell a lot about a gent by his socks. Below are some failsafe rules for those looking to add (a subtle amount of) pop to their world…

TheBaller

The Baller

Basketball is a very popular pastime among a lot of surfers, in particular those from the east and west coasts of America. Worlds collided in the best possible way when it was announced that Stance would be the official sock of the NBA, and this was perhaps of interest to you, if you’re a gent who, when not lighting up your local beachbreak, enjoys shooting hoops with a group of likeminded individuals. If anyone knows basketball socks, it’s Stance. Make your pals silently jealous with The Baller.

For the lovers of detail, a subtle maroon and red blend brings a lot to some relaxed Tokyo pinstripes. You probably spend a lot of time thinking about fonts, probably holiday in Copenhagen, probably scroll JJJJound in your free time, and probably listen to Awesome Tapes From Africa’s Boiler Room in the studio. You’ll also probably like these.

ThePrint

The Print

Is Bear Grylls your type of gent? Do you rush your mouse at any link with the words “canada+surfing+camping” in it? You probably own a car that can be comfortably slept in. Maybe you even live out of your well-equipped vehicle. Your daydreams mostly take place in Patagonia. And… you wear The Print under your boots.

What did we do before invisible socks? One of sartorial culture’s great gifts to the world, invisible socks will extend the lifespan of your footwear while allowing you a sockless look. Perfect for a white canvas sneak or those weekend cycling shoes.

TheIcon

The Icon

Here’s one for those who collar and boot to support their higher style of living, but need a little expressive detail to make the neutral tones of their suiting pop. The Icon is, as icons are, classic. Stab particularly enjoys the texture!

TheAthlete

The Athlete

The Athlete is made for performance, as its name might suggest. But the beauty of socks is, they’re wide open for interpretation. The Athlete’s aesthetic means it’s just as likely to find itself in the shoes of a bohemian as it is a baller or brawler. If you’re the former, and you celebrated 04/20/2017, you could probably benefit from these rasta vibes in your life.
