The Lede: Richer Poorer Took over My Sock Drawer

Richer Poorer - Classic Socks Header

Getting the basics down is easy. Getting them right? That’s a different story.

L.A.-based Richer Poorer specializes in elevated socks, T-shirts and boxers for men (there’s plenty for ladies, too), and after adding several pairs of socks to my rotation, courtesy of co-founders Iva Pawling and Tim Morse, over the past few months there’s a reason they’ve taken over my top drawer. They get it right.

The classic line is infused with a laid-back California vibe — no fluorescent taco prints in sight, just vibrant patterns that style as easily with a pair of Oxfords as they do All-Star IIs (trust me). My love of ’em hasn’t faded with multiple washes, and neither has their colour.

What really stands out for me is the brand’s athletic line, inspired by skateboarding and other action sports out west. Made from a reinforced, breathable performance fabric, they feature comfortable cushioning under impact points and wrap it all up with a touch of compression. I’ll wear a pair to the office, switch shoes and go for a run, or just wear them to help my legs recover after a hard workout.

A bold sock is the easiest way to instantly upgrade your outfit. Pull on a pair and let the compliments roll in.
