Not all dress socks are equal. Boardroom Socks makes some the most comfortable, professional, and attractive dress socks we have reviewed. And, frankly, that’s saying something, because we have tried out some excellent business socks over the years.
What makes this brand so special? Overall construction is top-notch and both the merino wool and mercerized pima cotton socks we tested are thick and soft without pilling or thinning out after a long day of hard wearing. Also, in the name of objectivity, we have washed heck out of our socks and they are still looking and feeling great.
The family behind this new brand is actually no newbie to the world of menswear furnishings. It turns out that they have been at this for seven generations.
This means that when you pull on a pair of Boardroom socks, you are benefiting from 175 years of weaving, design, and hosiery expertise. All Boardroom socks are made in the United States and all the fibers used these socks are selected to maximize performance, durability, and comfort.
The styles are classic and straightforward, and frankly, that’s a smart thing. Fun designs and bright colors certainly have a place in your sock wardrobe. However, often what you really need is a deep bench of reliable and comfortable basic designs and simple patterns. Classic ribbing provides natural interest and visual texture. Simple pin dots subtly reference and highlight colors in your outfit, keeping the focus on you and not your ankles.
From design to construction, Boardroom Socks gets it right, right from the start. We have been wearing a variety of product – over-the-calf, mid-calf, wool, cotton, solid and patterned – and they all have exceeded our expectations. We most certainly recommend that you try out a few pair and put them into daily rotation.
