    Don’t stop wearing you loafers and get your sock game on


    No matter the temperature, the Stig 3 season is not over yet. In fact, why not use your loafers all year around? When the temperature drops, get your sock game on and cover your ankles in block colours, textures, prints, you name it. Now, matching socks to your outfit scare a lot of men, but fear not, we have made a comprehensive guide on how to choose your socks to go with your loafers.


    The Stig 3 Loafer

    The Stig 3 is a loafer that works equally well with a suit and a dinner party as to a pair jeans on the weekend. The shoe is made of vegetable tanned leather with a double leather brim on the sole for effect and a durable rubber sole to endure rainy days. Choose between a classic Black, a sophisticated dark blue Blue, a sleek Brown or why not a Bottle Green to add some colour to your outfits.






    1. Block Colours and Textures

    If you are unsure about sock pairing; stick to plain colours, block colours and dress socks. When wearing a suit, or suit trousers, a general rule to stick to is to keep the colour of your socks matching to the trousers and choose a pair of socks that are either a shade darker or lighter than the trousers you’re wearing. Why not try a colourful pair of socks to your suit and match with the tie or pocket square!

    Textures are also a great way to play the sock game; a textured pair of socks is a sophisticated choice that ads that little extra to an outfit. Textures works well for anyone, whether you consider yourself classic or daring. Try a pair of Black Stig 3 with light grey suit trousers and pair of textured grey socks in a slightly darker shade, as in the picture bellow.




    2. Full-On Prints and Patterns

    Keep the rest of your outfit simple when going for full-on patterned socks. Again, try to match the base colour of the printed socks to your trousers. Or, why not co-ordinate your patterned socks with a pocket square when wearing a suit. If you are interested in going for patterned socks, but you do not know where to start, polka dots, stripes, and argyle are classic patterns that always works. If you feel slightly bolder, try a pair of colourful patterned pair of socks to light grey suit trousers!

    A Few General Rules (although rules are made to be broken by the brave)
    • Match your socks with your suit trousers when wearing a suit
    • Choose a pair of socks that are either a shade darker or lighter than the trousers you’re wearing
    • Colourful socks with suits are acceptable to important work meetings and black tie events if you are confident enough to pull it off!
    • When opting for a pattered pair of socks, try to match the base colour with your trousers.
    • Plain white socks and suits are a NO!


    Last But Not Least


    A few good tips to a good sock game, that are hopefully useful when picking a pair of socks for your Stig 3. Don’t forget that the rules should be seen as guidelines, or rules to be broken!
