Would appreciate any recommendations for high quality socks. I last bought a pair of Pantherella but frankly was a bit disappointed. Could it have been a fluke or are they, like all brands, not what they were?

Has anyone any experience with Fort Belevedere, the shop affiliated with The Gentleman's Gazette?

Viccel socks from Turkey are probably the best bang for your buck if you want similar socks to what Fort Belvedere has.

Mazarin from Mes Chaussettes Rouges is the absolute best in Europe. Don't know if they ship worldwide

I will second Viccel. They may not have all the patterns and colors of the FBs, but the OTCs do come in 3 different weights.

I've always worn Marcoliani and Bresciani. Both are Italian producers and very good. But a few years ago, I tried Dapper Classics because they advertise with a company I work for. I've also been impressed with their socks and would compare them favorably to those Italian brands.

Brands not mentioned above:
Palatino
EGTVED
Gallo
Mes Chaussetes Rouges - Gammarelli
Falke
Sozzi
Doré Doré
Dublo

Corgi
PedeMeia

I am happy with Corgi and PedeMeia.
Pantherella and Falke could be more robust.
