There aren’t many things I find more appealing in a man than when he has the confidence to expose just a little bit of his…
Seriously. This particular style statement is a perfect example of when the details can make all the difference. Printed socks in menswear have recently gone from dad-status to a symbol of a man who knows his fashion — and for good reason. An intentionally chosen and thoughtfully exposed pair does not go unnoticed; it says that you not only have the confidence to express yourself through your clothing, but also the good taste to rock this look.
Rolling up a pair of great chinos or corduroys is a necessity. The only alternative, flood pants, (although they would expose your exquisite taste in socks) are unquestionably a no-go. If you’re looking for the perfect pair of chinos or cords, check out J.Crew—their iconic clean-cut menswear is perfect to pull this look together.
No matter how amazing your socks are, though, they are nothing without the perfect pair of shoes. Marry your pair with some classy, neutral footwear.
Keeping the rest of the outfit clean-cut is another must. Being polished from the ankle down doesn’t make an outfit all on its own. Our featured Fashionisto does it perfectly with slicked back hair, aviators and a printed button-down.
A regularly polished ensemble is undoubtedly a great thing to strive for, but spicing it up every so often shows serious personality. Let a pair of printed socks peek out from beneath those chinos; compliments guaranteed.
