Sophisticated socks for the snappy dresser
If he’s dusting off his brogues after a year of wearing loungewear and flip-flops to work from home, some smart socks are likely to be a long-overdue investment and a way to mark the return-to-office step change. Look for interesting finishes to the knitted fabric, such as herringbone or marled effects, to freshen up his on-duty look.

Sports socks are a must for active men
Our best socks for running feature clever innovations: mesh panels for ventilation, ergonomically designed toes, a cushioned footbed for comfort and, of course, cooling, moisture-wicking fabric. If he’s into sports, consider sock length: long, ribbed socks look Wimbledon-worthy on the tennis court, while quarter-length trainer socks are ideal for a casual kick-around at the park.
Step up his style with fun, colourful socks
Brightly coloured or patterned socks are a great way to showcase his personality. Make a subtle statement with an eye-catching print at the ankle, especially when wearing a sharp outfit. A pair of novelty socks featuring his favourite motifs, from bicycles to birds, will be well-received, especially when the cotton is sustainably sourced like ours.
Kick back with cosy socks
When lounging at home, reach for a pair of toasty men’s thermal socks. Insulating wool-blend knitted socks with temperature-regulating Ultraheat technology will keep the chill at bay. Looking to dip a toe in the socks-and-sandals trend? Opt for plain ribbed socks in neutral tones that look on-point paired with chunky buckled sliders.
Gift-worthy luxury men’s socks
Fine yarns and premium finishing touches make our men’s socks a cut above. Consider these ultra-soft styles a real treat to receive. Alternatively, spell it out with a sock gift box that makes a thoughtful present and comes beautifully presented.
