Words by Mr Mansel Fletcher

Socks have never been as important as they are right now. This is due to the manner in which Mr Thom Browne, designer of Brooks Brothers' Black Fleece line, transformed the way men wear their clothes when, in the late-noughties, he started selling trousers with ankle-grazing hems. Some years later, and the trend is in full flow (or should we say show), and now even the most style-reluctant man is opting for short trousers or rolled-up hems. So with our ankles now enjoying some of the limelight, our choice in socks has got to be up to scratch. Here, we show you how...
