These J.Crew camouflage socks ($16.50) are just the right mix of casual and fun and a great way to add a trendy pattern this spring.
Paul Smith from Gravity Pope
Ever dread going to a shoes-off party? Wear these trompe l’oeil numbers by Paul Smith from Gravity Pope ($30), and you’ll feel sufficiently shod.
Robert Graham from Harry Rosen
If you like a little pattern mixing, then try these Robert Graham socks from Harry Rosen ($30). This pair has a great mix of stripes and houndstooth in a modern colourway.
Mr. Gray from Leo Boutique
Mr. Gray socks (by Vancouver-based boutique, Roden Gray) are made in Japan with vintage machines. These Navajo-patterned, thick-knit socks from Leo Boutique ($39) are perfect to wear in the last days of winter.
Bleu Foret from Hudson’s Bay
If cotton isn’t high-end enough for you, then try these 100%-silk ankle socks by Bleu Foret from Hudson’s Bay ($24). Silk is the perfect transitional fibre for spring – just don’t wear them with your black boots.
Obey from Little Burgundy
Socks can be subversive too. What at first glance looks like a perfectly feminine floral is really a cultural statement sock from Little Burgundy ($16.60) by street artist Shepard Fairey and his Obey line of counter-culture clothing.
