Rock Your Socks- show your sock, shoe & pant combos - Page 719

post #10771 of 20523

If you are new to the world of socks I would recommend Pantherella. The best site I have found so far is Woods of Shropshire. I buy all my socks from them.

Dapper:

 

I would recommend: www.blacksocks.com - the best quality solid colour over the calf 100% cotton socks.  Heavier than the ones below, but very  hard wearing, and never fall down.  Only downside is limited colours.  But they work out pretty cheap if you get three or more pairs - about £12.

 

Also, www.meschaussettesrouges.com ("My Red Socks") - they are a bit more expensive, about £17, but worth it: lighter weight and softer than the ones above, in 100% cotton from Mazarin with a brilliant range of solid colours, or for something a bit more luxurious, 100% wool from Gammarelli  in a more limited range. 

 

Both of these companies have excellent service and will post to you in a few days.  The packaging and little touches from Mes Chaussettes Rouges, are very appealing too.

 

Another little jump up in price gets you www.brescianisocks.com.  For the actual Brescianis, I'd say size up as they don't go quite over my big calves in normal size.  But they are very nice, available in 100% cotton for many of the ranges, and have great patterns.  At the same site (they are actually a US retailer, not Bresciani directly), they have Marciolani socks too.  Those are great patterns, but most are mixed with nylon, which I personally don't like.  They have some expensive but lovely looking cashmere and silk numbers too.

 

But if it's all about the money, you could try www.viccel.com  They are very cheap and have a great range in different weights, very good service again, and lots of colours and patterns.  I am wearing their extra-light socks today (pic above).  I have to say they're not quite in the same league so far, based on the two pairs of light socks that I bought: they both shrunk a bit after the first wash, even though it was cold water.  Still nice, but no longer over the calf!  Also, their colours are a little "artificial" in contrast to the warmer solid colours offered by Mazarin.

 

P.S.  Pantherella look great, but again I have not been able to find any over the calf socks in 100% natural fibres, and personally I don't like nylon mixes, so they're out for me.

Mimo, are you certain that the Gammarellis from http://www.meschaussettesrouges.com/en/ are available in pure merino wool? I can't seem to find an unambiguous description of the socks on the site, stating that it's pure wool. In fact they write that the socks have "reinforced heels and toes", which might be an euphemism for "nylon added"?

I usually buy pantherella from Woods of Shropshire, but http://www.socksfox.com/ might also be an option to try out other brands, though I haven't tried them yet. It is also possible to buy socks straight from http://www.falke.com/ I think.

Hmmm...maybe the My Red Socks guy who's been posting here could elaborate.  But i have a couple of pairs, and they certainly feel like pure wool - not hard like the Marciolanis.  Anyway, I hope I can be corrected - I just took "reinforced" to mean extra stitching.

 

Falke have great socks.  The problem is they only ship to certain countries, only through those countries' specific websites, and otherwise just refer you to a stockist in a neighbouring country.  If you're in the EU great, otherwise it's difficult.  I exchanged a few emails with them on this but they haven't added any other shipping options that I can see.
