The Pick: The socks to make a splash back at work

Let there be lemon

There are a finite number of ways you can make a style statement in an buttoned-up, well-starched office. But one way you can fly the fashion flag under the radar is by choosing a bold and striking pair of socks. Enter New & Lingwood, masters of sartorial quirkiness for over 150 years.

You don’t want to go too wild at your desk – but, if you did, New & Lingwood have you covered – so we’d suggest a big block colour that’ll draw interest whenever you sit down, hitch your trousers or stride into a meeting. Blue’s too cool, red’s a little obvious, so we’d plump for the underworn third primary colour; yellow.

In a traditional mercerised cotton ribbed knit, New & Lingwood’s wool socks combine comfort, style and durability perfectly. This mid-length style will also get you through autumn without your ankles getting too chilly and will guarantee a flash of bright yellow for the months to come – even if summer is coming to an end.
