Gammarelli- Socks fit for the Pope.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

OK, well you can't get the Pope's socks, but you can get pretty close.

 

I picked up a few pair of socks from Gammarelli's last week.  I thought I'd share a few pics with you all. 

 

Gammarelli has been in business for over 200 years; they provide garments for Catholic clergymen and also provide bespoke garments for the Holy Father.  None of the items they make will be useful to most of us, but they have some pretty sweet men's hosiery.  

 

They make a special "secret" sock for the Pope, the weave is made only for him, but for us laymen they carry a normal white sock.  They also stock purple (for Monsignors and Bishops) and Cardinal Red for, well... Cardinals. 

 

Enjoy-

 

 

The back side of the Pantheon is just around this corner to the left.

Sorry- the pictures of the other socks were blurry, but you can see the red ones here.  I'll try to snap a few next time I wear them.

how thin are their cotton socks?  i've been hunting for cotton socks at the same grade as Falke sea islands...

Sorry, I can't give you a thread count- but the white socks are thin enough that you can vaguely see your leg hair through the sock.  (If you really look.)  These are the thinnest socks I have ever had.

Why would I want to wear anything the pope wears?
Wait.... Cardinal Lint ....I like the sound of that...wait..make that Carnal Lint, even better.

The current pope doesn't seem to be the kind of guy who goes in for bespoke socks anyhow. That sounds more like the last one's style. I guess they were for him.

They are quality socks, probably made by one of the big socks manufacturer of Italy. Filo di scozia socks from any of the great Italian brands like Gallo and Sozzi are comparable to silk...

The current pope probably goes with 12 packs of athletic socks.

I hear the current Pope like to go sans socks in the Spring and Summer. He enjoys having cool feet.
