    I know that UK has some pretty good local sock manufactures and also the funky colorful sock designs such as by Paul Smith and Ted Baker. I am not looking to pay £15/pair socks however am wondering if there are any decent UK sock manufactures.

    Thanks!

    Drake's OTC wool socks. However, they're £25/pair.

    Pantherella are the best. You can buy them at Turnbull and Asser.

    We carry both Penrose and Corgi at Shrine.

    You can check out some of the styles on our website, shrinestyle.com or I can post some pictures if you are interested.

    Penrose are great for dress socks. Extremely soft and tons of colors and patterns and Corgis are one of our favorites, however they are a bit warmer and don't offer OTC.

    Hey Everyone,

    We were thrilled with response we received on the sock sale. I am adding a picture below that shows all of our Penrose sock offerings from Spring/Summer. Starting today we are offering another Style Forum exclusive sale! 50% off any of the socks pictured below. Just give us a call at 312.675.2105 or email [email protected] to place an order over the phone, as this sale has not yet started anywhere, but here.

    We are also beginning a contest! Post a picture of yourself wearing a pair of Penrose or Corgi socks you purchased from us on our thread and we will randomly pick a winner of a free pair of Corgi or Penrose socks!

    All but two styles are over the calf (OTC) style socks. Retail price is $35.00 USD and will come to $17.50 USD per pair after the sale price. Please call or email us with questions or shoot us an email at [email protected] with a description of the socks you wish to order and a size.

    I don't think Duchamp, Penrose London or Paul Smith socks are made in England.

    -- Just checked my 10 pairs of Duchamp socks; all made in Italy.

    While we're at it , neither is Falke. And it's no English brand either.
