Modern Grunge Style with McGregor Socks

I am a nineties child through and through. The music shaped me, the style defined me. So when the ever ongoing cycle of fashion swung back around, bringing plaid, leather, ripped jeans and Dr Martens’ boots back with it, I was thrilled.

When you’re young and expressing yourself in fashion, it can be a struggle. You’re trying to emulate what you see on rock stars, models, and celebrities, and you’re doing it on a teenager’s budget. In my teen years, my flannel shirts were from the bargain bin, my wool work socks were scratchy and uncomfortable, and my Docs’ were the most valuable possession I owned. But with adulthood comes more insight, accessibility, and a credit card. My grunge style is now elevated; my plaid shirt has a feminine flair, my ripped jeans came that way, and my work socks are soft and warm, thanks to McGregor Socks. 


McGregor Socks, a third generation family owned and run company, has been in the business of crafting high-quality socks and legwear since 1928. Honing their craft and product for nearly a century now, it’s no wonder that McGregor has become the number one brand of socks and legwear in Canada.

I became a McGregor sock lover when I discovered their Weekender Collection. These socks bring together that grunge style I love with the quality and durability you need to combat the Canadian outdoors (a bit more intense than rainy Seattle). Made from high quality merino wool and/or premium soft cottons, Weekenders look great worn over jeans, peeking over an 8 or 10 hole Dr. Marten boot.


While I gravitated to that traditional work sock style that I wore as a teen, Weekender by McGregor is a full collection featuring different colours and styles, some made with merino and some with cotton for, giving you lots of options to dress up those feet in comfort and style.


Weekender by McGregor is available at Sears Canada and Hudson’s Bay. Get yourself a pair this winter and stay warm in style. Tag us in your Weekender style shots on instagram using the hashtag #WeekenderbyMcGregor and @mcgregorsocks and @weraddictedmag today!
