WESTCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Men's sock wear company Soxfords believes that the fabric covering your feet should be a "secret weapon", subtly adding an extra spring to your step. The Company is known for their collection of colorfully themed, high-quality designs. Each pattern is created around a thought-provoking topic or backstory. From frogs, to fish, burgers, and zombies, you've never seen dress socks like these! Soxfords recently introduced themed gift boxes that celebrate the particular style of several top-selling designs. The brand has placed its socks alongside a collection of well-crafted products from artisan companies, and curated collectables to bring an assortment of high-quality gift boxes. Gift box themes include: Zombie Survivalist, Cubical Commando, Fanatical Foodie, and Zero G.
In celebration of their first anniversary, Soxfords recently launched a "Sock Insurance" program. Every six months, socks that are purchased on www.Soxfords.com are eligible for "insurance claims" whereby customers can receive 50% off the same pair.
The company is the brainchild of Ryan Kent, who found himself unimpressed with the boring selection of men's socks. Soxfords bridge the gap between novelty and classic dress, and they are designed to complement the personality of the wearer.
"The patterns are quirky and fun, but they are still smart and sophisticated – socks that a gentleman can wear to the office and then to the bar," says Kent. "The small bursts of color around the ankles and feet enables the wearer to express a little personality while wearing a suit."
An Ignoble End style, primarily in blue with yellow accents, features a fisherman sitting on a bench reeling in and eating a large yellow gold fish. The backstory reveals a lesson about greed. The Zealous Zombie in lavender with purple accents tells the story of a friendly zombie whom pedestrians attack, when "all he wanted was a hug".
While the designs are colorful, Soxfords are cut to a dressier fit more acceptable for business professionals. Made from an ethically sourced premium cotton blend, Soxfords are responsibly manufactured. The brand recently partnered with a family-run hosiery mill from Columbia with the technical expertise that enables Soxfords to produce a phenomenal quality, Pima cotton blend. Each pair is generously cut over the calf, with a wide cuff to avoid slippage. There are also mid-calf options available. Each pair gives the perfect amount of stretch needed to mold comfortably around the leg.
Soxfords also believes in giving back to those in need. Through their partnership with 1% For Humanity®, Soxfords is committed to giving at least 1% of their gross income to fight extreme poverty and injustice.
Soxfords range from $20 - $25 per pair, with a range of combo packs available. Themed gift boxes range from $50 - $95. All items are available for on www.Soxfords.com.
Launched in 2013, Soxfords colorfully themed men's sock designs embrace the idea of being "outstanding, without standing out" - really unique, without being overly loud, or obnoxiously silly. They have fun without going too far by focusing on subtle details - a hungry lobster embroidered on your calf, or a sneaky submarine just surfacing from your shoe. A bit of tongue-in-cheek fashion for a professional crowd, breathing some life into the traditional business casual environment. Soxfords range from $20 - $25 per pair, with a range of combo packs available. Themed gift boxes range from $50 - $95. For more information visit:
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

I’m going to cry tonight, long and hard. I’ll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan. I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo’s headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn’t called Cloud Expo then, of course – it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs. Jeremy didn’t have a job there, or even a job offer. He was s...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
