It’s almost time for “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports.” In just a matter of days, women will put on their finest hats, spectators will sip their mint juleps, the band will strike up “My Old Kentucky Home”, and the fastest three-year-old thoroughbreds in the world will race around the track at Churchill Downs for a chance to become a part of history. America’s race is almost here.
The days leading up to the 2015 Kentucky Derby have been exciting for Dapper Classics. This Spring we released our first ever Derby socks. The limited run of socks features a Mint Julep and Bow Tie pattern. Our Pink Derby socks are already Sold Out and our Navy Derby socks are going fast. We also collaborated with our friends at Kentucky for Kentucky to knit a limited supply of “Run for the Roses” and “Run for the Bourbon” socks – both styles Sold Out in a hurry.
We know dressing for the Derby is serious business, so we’re grateful for those who plan to make Dapper Classics socks part of their outfits this Saturday. If you’re wearing Dapper Classics socks this Derby weekend, we encourage you to share images of yourself wearing the socks on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #DapperDerby. We’d love to see how you use the socks to help you achieve a perfect Derby look. We’ll plan on sharing some of the best pictures with our followers. Enjoy the race!
