Fall is back. Whether that elicits excitement at the thought of being able to layer up once again or dread that soon it will mean donning a winter coat and boots, there’s no denying it. We personally love the colder months here at Le club des douze, because it means there’s more opportunity to accessorize our wardrobes.
If you’ve seen our last few selections, you might have noticed that we included some very dapper and incredibly Fall-appropriate socks. They come courtesy of American Trench, who we are talking about this week.
The company started only a few years ago with the quest to make the perfect trench coat for the modern man, hence the eponymous brand name. Alex is personally a fan of their blue trench coat, saying that it has all the makings of a classic trench coat that immediately becomes a wardrobe staple, but is set apart by the blue color, which is a welcomed update.
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, American Trench quickly expanded to include socks, knit accessories and some menswear pieces. There have smartly expanded the business slowly, to ensure that each product meets their standards of high quality. Plus everything they make is manufactured in the US!
I’m glad they did, because their socks easily take an outfit from dull to individual. From stripes to fair isle weaves in a range of colors, it is easy to add a little pop to your outfit without going overboard such as these merino wool and cashmere fair isle socks.
