I'll admit it, this was an easy blog to research! There's a lot that can be said about a smart looking sock to pull together an outfit. That relaxed slouched pop of colour atop a sturdy leather boot, a smooth, crisp, classic ribbed sock with brogues or the relaxed weekend bed sock in leu of a slipper and some Father's just seem to nail it.
When one Googles or looks for pins on Pinterest with key terms for stylish dads there is an inordinate amount of Mr Ryan Reynolds images, so you can imagine the nosiness of my husband, peeping over my shoulder, as I searched for said 'stylish dads'.
One of the key things that became apparent to Alice and I when we were designing our mohair and alpaca sock collections was this; it's all very well having fun 'happy socks' with novelty designs but really, did you ever see truly stylish, well turned out ladies and gentlemen wearing them?
The answer is no. Sorry, you just don't.
That's why our mohair and alpaca socks are the go to accessories to upgrade your sock drawer with. And since Father's Day in the UK is upon us any second, what better way than to gift these dapper, hardworking socks to our dapper, hardworking father's. We've even given you a fabulous offer of TWO PAIRS of MOHAIRS socks for £30 including our beautiful gift wrap!
Right, back to the world's most stylish dads. All credit to Pinterest for this swoon worthy blog feature!
From a style point of view, what is evident is that these father's know how to:
- Layer fabrics and accessories
- Tonally work with textures and interesting volume and lengths
- Use a pop of colour
- Not wear ridiculous novelty socks
- Wear quality investment pieces that look sharp and stand the test of time
