The only other place is Viccel. Are they still good quality for wool socks?

 

I use the Woods of Shropshire for Pantherella socks.

Pretty sure my Howard Yount socks are Marcoliani.

Don't DJs have Marcoliani and Pantharella?

I'm carrying Bresciani now also, $7 flat rate postage or $10 ex post.

Having sold both Pantherella and now Bresciani, I can say that the latter stay up about 200% better than Pantherella. No experience with Marcolioni to compare.

+1. I'm pretty sure that the HY socks are made by Marcoliani because a) HY used to stock Marcoliani and b) when he changed over to his own label, they looked identical to the Marcoliani socks.

Yes, but the selection is usually pretty dismal.

Also, the original query was about thin woollen socks. I did get a couple of pairs of thin, woollen dress socks by Marcoliani at DJs some years back, but I'm not sure if they carry them and they may well be very expensive.

Canberra DJ did/has have a good selection of Marcoliani but as JM says there expensive but well worth picking up on sale. HY did use to stock them but now carries a house brand which is made by Marcoliani. I bought a few pairs and there not the same quality.

Lovely colours! Is the gorge on the shoulder or is it just the angle of the photo?

Adelaide DJs had red and charcoal woolen Marcolianis in stock last week. They're $29.95 though so unless you pick them up during the sales you're probably better off getting Bresciani (which IMHO are better anyhow) from  Henry Carter or PJohnson.

Interesting that Oscar Hunt is shown to be at a similar price point to PJ. I would have thought that they would be similar to Suit Shop, price-wise.
