Hi Styleforum,

I live in Hong Kong, and would like to know where to find good socks with the following characteristics:

Colourful/fun (think Paul Stuart)
Over the calf
Material: 100% cotton or 100% wool (is this even possible, ie. without nylon or acrylic?)
Doesn't cost something ridiculous like HKD 300 for one pair

I'd be willing to compromise on any of the four criteria if the other three are fulfilled ...

Thanks!

Viccel fulfil these three criteria. They do a few that are colourful as well, but their designs are a bit limited, mostly solid colours.

Thanks guys. I'll probably go for the Viccels (if they ship here).

Lane Crawford only has socks with nylon in them; the Armoury will probably laugh at me if my maximum willingness to pay per pair is only HKD 300.

Most of the pairs on their website seem to be 170 HKD or less, except for one pair which is 500 HKD for some reason I cannot determine.

This is great; I didn't even bother checking the website because I thought it'd be too expensive. Viccel still seems like a better deal though.

And lol the HKD 500 pair seems to be the one with nylon and elastane!

Again, these are not 100% cotton or wool, and as far as I'm aware they only make mid-calf socks.
