American Trench

Kennedy Lux Athletic Socks

Sale price Price $12.00 Regular price $19.50

The Kennedy lux athletic sock - inspired by a photo of JFK on a yacht watching America's cup, it reads as both retro and modern. The 35th President of the United States was perhaps our most stylish, and the combo of trousers and these athletic socks stands the test of time. The Kennedy socks are knit in Pennsylvania from USA grown and spun Supima cotton, one of the finest extra-long staple cotton fibers in the world.  This crew length sock has both a vintage and a contemporary casual style that pairs well with boots, sneakers, mocs, or even wingtips. If you are stylish enough, you can rock them with wool trousers and derbies like JFK.

We found an amazing picture of JFK wearing white athletic socks with a blue and yellow stripe on Christmas morning. The photo inspired us to make the limited edition Xmas Kennedy Lux Athletic sock. Quantities are limited and when they're gone, they're gone!
