Socks that are sized numerically should match shoe sizes. Â These are made by only a handful of companies anymore. Â Socks that are sized S, M, L, XL, etc. generally cover a range of about two or three shoe sizes. Â The letter size to shoe size range varies from maker to maker. Â I wear a 12 shoe, and find that XL dress socks from most English, French and Italian makers fit shoe sizes 11 to 13.
What are the companies that still do numerical sizing? Anyone know? The obliteration of sizing has made its way to hats, I've found. Still, I am heartened to see that Dobbs & Stetson and others carry on. Re: chart. I've seen one somewhere, and I always thought that the sizing for the sock did not match the sizing for the shoe. Let me see if I can find an example of that in my wardrobe. I have a few drawers of never worn socks from days of old.
