What are Happy Socks and why are they suddenly, mysteriously, everywhere? I first noticed them during a recent stop-by at Unis, and they've been stalking me ever since, showing up in the menswear department of every webshop I frequent (Steven Alan, Need Supply, and Gargyle, to name but a few).
My curiosity forced me to Google their provenance, which revealed that they are of Swedish origin. The color options are endless, and though I tend to see them in menswear shops, they're actually unisex. With their playful patterns and cheery hues, they do look rather inviting and, well, happy.
