Racing Horses and Run for the Bourbon in These Dapper Socks!

by Kentucky For Kentucky |

Love the Kentucky Derby? How about Bourbon? Is your sock game weak? Is your sock game strong? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you’re gonna love these new dapper dress socks we’re launching this Friday! Available in two styles, these socks celebrate two of Kentucky’s finest inventions; The Kentucky Derby (Run for the Roses socks) and bourbon (Run for the Bourbon socks). Available just in time for both Keeneland and the Kentucky Derby, these socks will take your sock game to the next level of Kentucky kick-assery.

Available in two styles: 

Our ‘Racing Horses’ socks sport tiny roses and race horses: designed by Rachael Sinclair.

Our ‘Run for the Bourbon’ socks sport tiny bourbon barrels and bottles: designed by Rachael Sinclair.

So how were we able to produce these amazing new dress socks? We teamed up with Dapper Classics. A company that’s in the business of providing the world with amazing dress socks. Even better, they are headquartered here in good ol’ Kentucky and were founded by a father and son team, fellow Kentuckians (born and raised, y’all) Fred and Harrison Rich. Dapper Classics, like the rest of us, have a, appreciation for Kentucky, bourbon and fast horses.


“Fred and Harrison Rich, a father and son team, founded Dapper Classics in 2011 with the intent of providing a stylish, quality option for men’s dress socks. Fred and Harrison were dissatisfied with bland men’s hosiery that would sag and bunch upon wear. They were also troubled by the limited choices for luxury Made in USA men’s socks.  After months of planning and research, they located a third-generation North Carolina mill that helped them realize their dream of producing fashionable, American-Made socks for men. In 2013, Dapper Classics reaffirmed its commitment to creating and supporting American jobs by purchasing a state of the art linked-toe knitting machine. Dapper Classics purchased a second linked-toe knitting machine in 2014.” –Dapper Classics
