It is the sock the new tie ?

Long time I'm not on StyleForum. Maybe the matter has been already discussed and I missed it, but I see from the request we have from all the brands we are cooperating, socks have a new life. It seems it's happening what happened to the ties in the '80, when all the major brands had a hudge collection of ties because it was the trend.
Now all the brands want to have a large socks collection in their selection. Maybe because people is wearing less ties (really sorry for our tie makers friends) and the touch of colour is brought by socks...

Very true in some places, especially the tech industry in California. There are a lot of casual workplaces, and socks are a way to add color where a tie would be severely out of place.

That's probably not the only reason. There have been some advancements in sock fabrics, which likely includes an ability to handle some colors better.
