The Gambler socks take inspiration from a dark chapter in Wearwell company history. Behind the backs of the business owners, company secretary Mr. King gambled the monthly takings at a local billiard hall. In a game of chance he rolled the dice and lost. Everything.
But, what if fortune had dealt him an altogether different hand? What if he’d won? What would have become of Mr King?
We celebrate all those who have heroically gambled it all. The three man breakaway. The attack from the bunch. The Alpine solo artist. Those that light up the race. Those that dare to dream.
