Things I didn’t think I would say – ‘Socked is a black sock subscription service’

Socked (Twitter – @wearesocked) is a new UK based company aiming to rid the world of odd socks, by supplying customers with a black sock subscription service. Yes, I said socks by mail order!  Catering for time poor gentlemen who take pride in their appearance, it offers peace of mind for consumers worried about odd socks or having to wear tatty old socks.

Socks can be delivered once a month, every 3 months or twice a year, and customers can choose any color they want, as long as it is black. The service also supply’s etiquette tips that every gentleman should follow. You can even post your own tip, so be sure to leave a suitable one chaps.

I’ve seen it all now, and have a sudden excitement for socks all over again.

Welcome to Maketh The Man, a lifestyle and travel blog by Callum Watt and Anton Welcome.

Maketh The Man launched in 2010 as a home to showcase male jewellery. From the best chunky necklaces to our favourite signet rings. Whilst the Mark Twain quote does say "Clothes maketh the man", we actually think its the finer details that make an outfit really pop. Hence why we decided to focus our attention on how to accessorize your wardrobe.

We quickly expanded our coverage to include all accessories from the best footwear, to the most stylish bags and pocket squares.

Today Maketh The Man has grown to be one of the UKs top male lifestyle blogs covering a range of different categories. From the greatest holiday destinations to the tastiest cocktail or finest whisky recommendations, with a healthy dose of technology and grooming thrown in.
