    Does anyone know who in London will make bespoke socks?

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that Emma Willis does, but I haven't had a chance to drop my Jermyn St recently.

    I believe Anderson & Shepherd have a couple of knitters lined up and can supply heavy hunting hoses to your description and colours or in your own personal tartan. I don't think you can get fine dress socks as bespoke. They will be knitted by machine and the cost of setting up the machines will be prohibitive if you only want 1/2 dozen pairs.

    Try your granny first.

    Seems like an obnoxious indulgence if you ask me but then again I don't have six toes.

    Chuck posted a link recently. I'd go with his source if I had a soul, but I don't.

    Well, about 60 years ago one could have anything bespoke so it's not a new trend for people seeking exclusivity.

    The measuring and fitting(s) must be interesting.

    Ah, yes, the Plaster Casters...I've always wondered why they didn't exploit the market for selling um...replicas.
