The installation consists of an architectural framework carefully aligned to the door and window mullions in the former lobby of McGregor Socks on Spadina Avenue. Documentation of the pre-existing terrazzo tartan in the floor and research into historical Scottish tartans determined the colours and the proportions of the sculptural weave.
McGregor is now merely a label, and its production has followed the lower costs that free trade and globalization have provided. Acknowledging the loss of well-paid unionized work to low paid third world labour, the title S-O-C-K-S is a homonym for the phrase "eso si que es," Spanish for "of course it is."
