Interesting article. Thanks Philo, although I'm not surprised at Corgis exclusion.

Is Corgi not at the same level of some of the labels listed?

In my experience, both Corgi & Pantherella have fallen in quality. The inclusion of Pantherella is somewhat surprising too, perhaps tokenistic.

Does Scott-Nichol deserve mention?

Pantherella's generally feel nice, but every pair I own are maddeningly short - they are all mid-calf and don't stay up shog[1].gif

Bresciani are the best in my opinion.

Gallo is tops for me---both in variety of colors and patterns and quality of the cotton.

I agree, best socks in my collection, both in cotton and extra fine merino. Almost as good Dore Dore and Sozzi .

I have just picked up this thread and thought I would post a reply - Scott Nichol are certainly worth a mention - have a look at our selection, they really do make a fantastic range of socks if you want to stand out from the crowd!
