    Interesting article. Thanks Philo, although I'm not surprised at Corgis exclusion.

    Is Corgi not at the same level of some of the labels listed?

    In my experience, both Corgi & Pantherella have fallen in quality. The inclusion of Pantherella is somewhat surprising too, perhaps tokenistic.

    Does Scott-Nichol deserve mention?

    "clouds of ghee" doesn't exactly connote fluffy goodness, to me anyway.

    Pantherella's generally feel nice, but every pair I own are maddeningly short - they are all mid-calf and don't stay up :embar:

    Bresciani are the best in my opinion.

    Gallo is tops for me---both in variety of colors and patterns and quality of the cotton.

    I agree, best socks in my collection, both in cotton and extra fine merino. Almost as good Dore Dore and Sozzi .

    I have just picked up this thread and thought I would post a reply - Scott Nichol are certainly worth a mention - have a look at our selection, they really do make a fantastic range of socks if you want to stand out from the crowd!
