The Plot Thickens: Ankle Socks Spotted in Sweden


Just the other day, I reported on the ankle sock and lace-ups trend that sprouted over the course of the spring/summer men’s shows in Milan and Paris.

Yes, ankle socks are slowly becoming a source of comfort and style for those men who would rather not go sockless for the summer. And, ahem, given I’m not one to endorse socklessness; I’m mighty thrilled at this development.

However, as with most trends, for it to reach bonafide status it helps to have a following beyond just one individual and one locale.

The Sartorialist spotted the ankle sock in Milan and Paris during the spring/summer 2009 men’s shows and my hopes were ignited. Now all the way in the blonde hair, blue-eyed, avant-garde populous of Sweden, Face Hunter has sighted yet another ankle sock look and I’m feeling real gutsy about rocking ankle socks avec dress shoes!

I don’t know about you all, but I think we’ve stumbled unto something here…stay tuned!

  1. No, it’s really hot! You should totally rock them! PLUS I’d love to see the new ankle sock designs that’ll stem from this!

  2. In fact I’ll give it a try too.

  3. Just love to wear ankle socks out n about a great look for both men and women with sexy ankles! The best r the short ones you can just see shame the mens’ colours are so staid.
