    Is there any quality difference between the different traditional jermyn street shops when it comes to socks, or is it just a matter of different profit margins and different selection?

    Take Harvie&Hudson vs. Turnbull&Asser for example. £17 vs $24 a pair, is there a difference, or are they the same ones manufactured by Pantharella or whomever?

    They are the identical Pantherella socks, either 100% Cotton Lisle or 90/10% Merino wool (although T&A might offer a few more colours).

    'Woods of Shropshire' (mail order) charges the best prices for the same socks, but offer a limited colour range.

    That's awesome, do you know if they deduct VAT from their prices if you order them sent to an offshore address?
