A few weeks ago I exhibited at The Gentlemen's Expo in Toronto. For those of you who missed it, the expo focused on the modern man. Exhibits included menswear products, exotic cars, food and alcohol tastings, architecture and a number of discussions series focused on men's issues. As I perused the floor, I came across Cole & Parker, a Canadian sock brand with plans to expand into the states. Their exhibit caught my eye because of their very colorful sock selection. I purchased two pair, one called The Corporate Ladder and the other called The Philanthropist.
Listed online for $24 per pair, Cole & Parker's prices are twice as expensive as U.S. competitors Happy Socks and Mack Weldon. The materials are virtually identical across the brands and the styling is very similar. So what sets Cole & Parker apart? Their mission is to help entrepreneurs globally:
