Back to Office Style: Boardroom Socks featured in Adweek

Boardroom Socks was recently featured in Adweek magazine's article titled "Something’s Afoot as America Returns to the Office: A Renaissance in Men’s Socks."

Reporter Robert Klara interviewed Boardroom Socks CEO Nathan James to get his insight on the direction of dress sock style in the post-covid business environment. Of particular note is the overall shift away from the fad of loud novelty socks that had been prevalent throughout the past several years; men are finding that bold, yet professional, socks allow them to express individual style while maintaining a polished look. As evidence, Nathan cited the increasing popularity of our red dress socks. While undoubtedly bright and vibrant, these socks are far from garish.

At Boardroom Socks we favor classic men's style, so the market's migration away from the fad of in-your-face dress socks is a welcome shift! To read the full article from Adweek, click here.
