Our sister site Racked LA spoke with Rob Kardashian about his sock line Arthur George, available exclusively at Neiman Marcus, and found out a few things about the XY Kardashian's sock passion—such as the collaborations in its future and also expansion to PJs and possibly handkerchiefs. Also, names that were tossed out in favor of Arthur George:
"Just Socks was one. Arthur George honestly [came] really quickly to me. I don't like to use my last name. I don't like it attached to things because people think you can just stamp your name on something and it's not organic or that you're just doing it for money. I would do this even if I wasn't on TV or in the limelight. I mean, I can't get away from my name—it is what it is. But at the end of the day, I don't want people to associate [Arthur George] with my sisters' brand.
I also liked Da Feeted. I mean, I liked the word "Undefeated" but obviously that's a store and a company."
Racked LA has a lot more of that as well as how scarves inspire him, how he's going to compete with Paul Smith, and whether or not Scott is going to have to buy his own socks.
