Alexandria's Official Sock 2020 Design Contest


old-town-sock-coThe Commonwealth of Virginia has an official motto (Sic semper tyrannis), tree (dogwood), dog (American foxhound), bird (northern cardinal) — even an official rock (nelsonite).

But Alexandria doesn’t seem to have an official anything, according to our sources.

Note: The entry period for this contest is now closed, and we'll be announcing the winner soon! 

The winning sock design will become the Official Sock of Alexandria, be manufactured and go on sale at the Old Town Sock Co. in Old Town this holiday season!

* You can pre-order socks here! For corporate or bulk orders, email

The Old Town Sock Co. is located at 1003 King St. Learn more about them at

A portion of proceeds from sock sales will be donated to the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.
