2(X)IST Rolls Out the Much Needed No-Show Sock

True story, I was asking many of my guy friends where they buy those tiny little socks nobody can see when you are rocking your boat shoes, dress shoes, or hell, these days any shoe where you want to appear sock-less. Nearly half of them said they had to sneak into the women’s area to find some since men’s ‘peds’ are usually too bulky. Sad but true.

Luckily, 2(X)IST has launched a line of no-show-socks that are handsome and practical. These lightweight, durable and ultra-low profile socks are engineered to fit a man’s foot, and feature a square-cut design across the instep to ensure a fit that gives that “sockless” look.

Added bonus: the 2(X)IST No-Show Sock Collection includes a non-slip rubber grip at the heel.  This added feature virtually eliminates that awkward “fish, find and pull-up” routine we’ve all come to accept as a reality of a no-show sock.

We appreciate the thought they have put into the line rolling out three categories – Dress, Casual and Athletic – so we can have a choice for each occasion.

If you are new to the no-show-sock look, give it a shot. You won’t look like a nerd wearing black socks in the summer and when you come home, change at the gym or get ready to snuggle with your gal, the last thing you want to see is dirty feet.

The collection is available now at and retails for $10 – $15.

Steven Kurutz and American Giant endeavor to create a flannel 100% American made
Follow American Giant to bring flannel back to the USA

What makes the flannel shirt something that stays with us here in America? Is it the quintessential garment of the American worker? Does it make us feel as though we are driving horses across the plains in the old American West? How about working the day away, clearing logs from the Pacific Northwest to supply the entire country with the lumber needed to build houses, decks, and shop fronts? Or maybe we don't have to reach back as far to imagine the flannel renaissance of the 1990s bringing us the nostalgia of our childhood imitating Kurt Cobain on stage. Either way, the flannel is a staple of Americana, and American fashion brand American Giant has spent years attempting to bring that garment back home.

What started out as an article in the New York Times blossomed into a half-decade journey for author Steven Kurutz to chronicle AG's desire to bring flannel-making back to the shores of the United States and to save factory jobs in his new book, American Flannel. As a native of a small town in Pennsylvania, Kurutz has watched his town wither away as factory jobs were shipped overseas. For him, the book was more than a story of American determination; it was a personal connection to a quest to save his own hometown and others like it.
