I personally hate J Crew socks. They mostly have wacky stripes, or patterns, which I don't like and even their "dress" socks are so thick they look very casual. I would say the best socks people would probably agree on Gallo and Marcoliani. I have had good luck with socks from Brooks Brothers as well.

Was thinking about pulling the trigger on Viccel but seems like quite a few people find them to rip easily.

Where can I get Paul Smith socks for a good price shipped to Canada? Or any other recommendations?

Paul Smith socks are going to rip just as easily as Viccel socks. I used to have a bunch of Paul Smith socks. Desintigrated fast. I always found Brooks Brothers socks to be a good value.

Oh okay, I just wish Viccel also carried multi-coloured socks.

What about Pantherella or Bresciani? We need a best socks thread...

They never stock anything I would ever buy either.

Pantherella is just ok. They fall apart quite fast too. Not anywhere near Paul Smith though. I know Paul Smith is made some some Italian brand. Can't remember the name at the moment.

A lot of people write about the failing quality of Pantherella. I've worn their socks for 20+ years and find their wool blends are still be pretty good and last a decent length of time. However, I find their cotton or cashmere socks fade and/or fall apart soon.

Yeah, I have found that wool socks last longer in general with all of the makers. I find myself buying only wool socks these days.

^^I wear light weight wool socks in the warm weather months. They keep my feet dry and cool.

However when it is really scortching hot I enjoy linen socks. But they don't last long at all frown.gif
