In praise of the UPS sock

I have a reasonably well documented liking of workwear. Practicality and price aside, I like the way it looks, always have. UPS socks have been on my wishlist for a while, but they’re surprisingly difficult to track down. I spent a bit of time wandering through the amazing ‘Browncafe‘ forum, (‘for fans and employees of UPS’) and finally found a supplier who didn’t need an employee passcode – Twinhill. In my lifetime I’ve had perhaps ten compliments on my socks, three of which have been in the last six months for my brown UPS ankle highs. Incidentally, they are far and away the most comfortable socks I’ve ever owned, which makes sense when you think about who they’re designed for.
