After seven years at a Fortune 500 company in London, Ryan saw an opportunity. The city was a sea of monochrome. Together with friend and colleague Dave Pickard, he created London Sock Company in 2013 to help add a dash of colour and optimism to people’s lives. This year, the brand will ship more than half a million socks direct to consumers in over 100 countries, as well as retail through Mr. Porter, Matches Fashion, Harrods and many more. You’ll find their socks on celebrities and CEOs the world over, from Daniel Craig and The Rock to Ryan Reynolds and Will.i.am.
Ryan is passionate about brand building, but also making a difference. A firm believer in the power of the little things that can have a big impact, he knows that socks can transform not only someone’s style but their state of mind. Through its Share a Pair initiative, London Sock Company donates a pair of socks to charity with every order, and also works with charity partners to repurpose old socks into warm items for the homeless.
