Socks are for life not just for Christmas – Socks don’t have to be boring

250x250_CMTM_BannerThe more ardent followers of Clothes-Make-the-Man will be aware of and what a sterling job they have done in revolutionising, not a word I use lightly, the way we not only look at socks but purchase them. So when the talented Sarah Gilfillan of Sartorial Lab approached me with a shoot idea on the not so humble sock and using some of the brilliant socks available from Richmond Sock. Well, how could I refuse.

    Haha, I agree with everyone else – the sock pictures are great. I especially like the business sock with the copy of the FT!
