So those D.S. Dundee fairisle socks sold out quick, eh? In the immortal words of Mr. Carter himself, "On to the next one." Brooks Brothers has their own $20-ish fairisle socks and a nice little 25% off if you get three pairs or more as well. Being the salesmen of Trad that they are, these socks are a tad less bold that the D.S. Dundee joints. They are monochromatic and in the same vein as Thom Browne's own Black Fleece version for BB. This is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on how your ankles get down. Keeping things monochromatic actually helps balance out the Christmas-y shtick inherent in anything fairisle. Nobody wants to look at full on rainbow snowflakes when you take a seat in a meeting. Keep in mind these Vermont knit socks are a merino wool, nylon and spandex blend so comfort is a huge factor in pulling the trigger on a few pairs. Fairisle socks from The Brethren - a solid option #2.
