Happy Tuesday, readers! It is with the greatest pleasure that The Sock Review features a distinguished brand all the way from Australia; The Dapper Collection. With an eye for sophistication, quality and design, The Dapper Collection is bound to catch some attention - socks first, of course. ;)
The nice guys over at The Dapper Collection were kind enough to send over some samples to review. They arrived elegantly; enclosed in their signature pack, and with a neat little note personalized for the occasion. I was very impressed by the level of style and attention-to-detail that was built into the experience. The debossed-logo envelope that carefully held its precious sock contents, made me feel important about opening it, and that there was something special to be expected inside. I certainly wasn't disappointed, as I neatly lifted out two very handsome (and soft) samples from their men's collection. Already, I was intrigued, as I had never paid too much attention to men's dress socks before. With The Sartorial Set, you are able to select four designs to fit into this impressive packaging. Now, let's check out the 'Smith Dalmatian' & 'Wilde Floral' styles.
Nothing says good style sense like a pair of perfectly-accessorized socks. Socks can strike up a conversation, tie your entire 'look' together, and even make you feel bold and absolutely, well, dapper :) I called on my trusty men's model to show off these particular styles. While we patiently waited for some sun, we decided to stroll around the city center, noticing all of the fresh flowers and urban wildlife - it was a perfect day for a photo shoot, at least for as long as the sun held out. *Note, some of the photos in this article were provided by The Dapper Collection, so be sure to check out their site for more styling tips!
As we meandered down the fountain-focused path, it was a great opportunity to catch the colors of the Wilde Floral sock against the texture of the water. It was an especially appropriate design for the day, as the flowers around were bright and cheery, capturing the same essence as the thoughtful hibiscus rose design. I could definitely see this style be used as a wedding gift-favor or for the groomsmen during a Summer or destination wedding. In fact, The Dapper Collection offers a Bespoke Monogram Service for just that sort of thing; very clever, indeed!
Headed for the office instead? Any of the collection's styles could easily pair with a handsome suit for a put-together look. Perfect for the gentleman-on-the-go. Do you have a favorite style? My personal favorite has got to be the Dalmatian...it's both classic and friendly. The colors of this style would seemingly complement a nice dark suit, or quickly dress up a casual khaki or jeans look.
After a much-anticipated thunderstorm interrupted the shoot, we decided to head out to the lake for to photograph the Smith Dalmatian style the next morning. It was a calm, cool day and the weather-worn wood from the lookout points were attractive in making this charming style stand out. I don't know what it is about the Dalmatian, but the breed itself exudes a certain sense of intelligence, sophistication and style; all the things you would want your socks to convey about you. Would you agree?
Overall, I'd give The Dapper Collection socks a 'thumbs-up' for quality, design and branding. Right off the bat, it's apparent that these are on-trend, and original designs exclusive to The Dapper Collection. Everything from the design to packaging is 'on-point' for its intended clientele.
