If you’re looking for a super quick or easy wardrobe fix, or you simply want to make a subtle change to your look, consider getting some new socks. Not those plain black school-type of socks though – I’m talking about socks that’ll get others talking.

There are a lot of guys I come across who say they can’t afford a good quality jacket or a couple of crisp new T.M. Lewin shirts, but a pair of brightly coloured socks is affordable and will sneak a bit of new life into an otherwise mundane pants/shoes combo. One of my favourite ways to freshen up any look, be it casual or formal, is a funky pair of socks with either a contrasting solid colour or a pattern of sorts.

A friend of mine recently lead me to a great local site called nicharry.com which not only specializes in luxury men’s socks but also an extensive range of rad accessories like shoelaces, ties and pocket squares. Nic’s range of products are designed & made locally and are great quality, too.

So for R200 or less, grab a new pair of socks (just don’t be boring and order plain) and have them shipped to you anywhere in SA for free!
