You might have already – begrudgingly though – realized that we’re slowly but steadily moving towards the end of summer. Which is on the one hand an undeniably cruel thought, especially when you spent most of the sunny season at your office desk while your jobless friends were getting wasted in the park at half-past two in the afternoon. On the other hand, this time provides us with a great excuse to spend some of that hard-earned cash on some fresh gear. For this week’s Buyer’s Guide we rounded up a selection of 10 patterned socks for the upcoming fall season. See them after the jump.
Folk – People Socks
Folk‘s waffle socks provide a unique take on a wardrobe essential. They are made of a comfy cotton blend and feature a textured knit, as well as a button securing an embossed logo leather tag. You can purchase them at End Clothing.
Vans – Willits Crew Socks
The ongoing camo trend might not be for everyone. However, if you consider introducing it to your wardrobe, better start small with a pair of the above Vans socks. You can pick them up at Sneakersnstuff.
Ayame – Wavy Stripe Socks
Ayame was founded in Japan in 2007 with the aim of providing top-shelf quality and above all stylish socks. Merely judging by the pair pictured above, I would say they pretty much succeeded in their mission. Get yours now at Present London.
