DDC-030 "DDC Crew Sock"

Product Description:
HECK YES: “DDC Factory Floor Issue “Crew Sock.”

Socks: Wow. I mean, if there ever was a case for “this DDC Merch stuff getting way out of control,” well, this would be it. Our very own crew sock? One part “creepy,” two-thirds part “real good.” This all started over five years back when my pal Chris Prosser from Atmosphere Clothing graced me with a pair of his socks. “These are made in the states, yo. Test ‘em out, homie,” he says at tosses me a pair. Some kind of street talk like that from Mr. Prosser. I did test them out, and five years later, the buggers are still holding up in my sock drawer. That’s pretty amazing when you consider the beating I have put them through.

Partnership: Our first in a long line of proud “co-branded” items, teaming up with the bad boys of Atmosphere here in Portland. It’s good to have back-up.

Words To Live By: Please take note of the special motivational message on the toes: “Live Free Or Die.” We’ve spent some quality time in New Hamsphire and always had a reverence for their state motto, and, how much tougher they seemed than all those good lookin’, happy, educated Vermonters next store, so, well, we went and simply borrowed it. Just like that.

Fine Print: Very “Limited Edition” kind of thing. Buy two pair, double them up, and sweat like a pig. Going fast. You need these. .

Product Details:
01. Set of two. You know, “one for each foot.”
02. The only color you need: “DDC Orange.”
03. Cotton/Acrylic blend.
04. Proudly Made in the U.S.A.
05. Durable contruction. Long-lasting materials.
06. Ankle and arch comfort, pretty much.

Oh damn. Practical and stylish! Safety Orange is the new Safety Red. As a native Vermonter I look down with disdain upon the slovenly uneducated hick state that is New Hampshire but I must admit I have always been slightly envious of their motto. Badass.

Is it possible for these to ship to Australia?

Posted by: CJPercival on 08/26/08 at 1:06 AM

Was there an answer to the Australia query?

Posted by: Adrian on 09/14/08 at 11:07 PM

I’ve got big feet. Will they fit me?

Orange is good, but for me - green is the new orange.

When these are sold out, you should make more, make ‘em green and make ‘em big.

Australians need to know about the sock shipping issue

Posted by: Evil Paul on 09/25/08 at 2:39 AM

Crikey Mate,
Can the bleeding socks be shipped to Oz, or should we be holding out for more plate tectonic shift to bring us right with you Yanks before we get proper footie?

Posted by: Chris on 09/30/08 at 9:55 AM

Inquiring minds want to know.

Posted by: techvector on 10/02/08 at 5:25 PM

Give Oz a chance, man.

New Hampshire is a great place for fighting

These are, by far, the most comfortable socks I’ve ever worn. Really… I’m not kidding.

Posted by: Steve on 04/23/09 at 8:42 AM

This is the best product in the merch store. When are we going to see a new color/design?

I was wearing my socks at Thanksgiving dinner with the fam and they we’re a bit hit. I’ve had to order three more pairs to give out as hanukkah gifts this year.

Posted by: Abraham Wallin on 11/27/09 at 11:58 AM

Please make more… just saw on Christine’s feet and coveted greatly!

Posted by: Matt on 01/20/11 at 12:31 PM

Dear DDC,

It is imperative that you make more of these stupendous socks. I must own a pair. I have a bit of a thing for socks, you see. I really like them.

Make some more socks man! If they’re portefield endorsed they must be good!

Posted by: Billy on 01/14/13 at 7:15 AM

OK, Mr. Vermonter you can keep your (entirely incorrect) comments on NH to yourself. It’s a great state (and yes, with a great motto that you should be jealous of) and if you have to trash it to make VT look good…well…what are you overcompensating for, buddy? All those crazy liberals?

Posted by: SandsOfTime on 01/30/13 at 8:51 AM

fuck! I wore them out! Neeed new ones!! Love them.
