Our dress socks are made in Italy with natural materials in the highest standards of quality and comfort. Fine and luxurious feel thanks to the high needle count, our flawless and comfortable socks go through numerous processes and checks.   

  

SOCKS THAT ACTUALLY FIT THEIR PURPOSE

Our socks are made to size with 100% natural fabric, solving the annoying issue caused by one size socks of extra material for those with smaller feet, or stretching socks If you have larger feet. Moreover, one size or limited sizes socks are made with a good amount of polyester or other synthetic materials, enemy of your skin.

With a long band that doesn't compress your calves thus leaving no marks or impeding blood circulation, and hand-linked and reinforced toe and heel, we have created for you socks that fit you; socks that actually fit their purpose, good for your skin, in timeless elegant styles. 

 

NATURAL FABRICS ~ For dry, happy legs and feet

LIGHT COMPRESSION ~ No need to pressure your calves and impede blood circulation, thanks to the perfect fit

SEAMLESS FEEL ~ Toes and heels are hand-linked, for a continuous smooth surface

 

THIN YET DURABLE SILKY SOCKS

Made to measure socks, to perfectly fit their purpose, also have to be thin, so they don't create pressure on your feet when wearing shoes that are also fitting very well, for example bespoke shoes. That's why our socks are knitted in high-needle number machines. More needles make for a denser fabric, which is more durable while being breathable and letting cotton, wool, cashmere and silk keep your feet at the right temperature. 

SUPER FINE ~ High needle numbers for a high density fine fabric, that's smooth and breathable, perfect to wear with bespoke shoes

DURABLE ~ The dense construction of our dress socks and reinforced heel and toe ensure durability.

We only offer over-the-calf/knee-high sock. Were you looking for mid lenght socks? We believe our over-the-calf socks are best for you as they stay up all day and don't cause discomfort and irritation to your skin thanks to natural fibers and their perfect fit.

CASHMERE & SILK

A marriage of comfort and style, with the combination of these two prestigious fibres: our most luxurious winter oriented dress socks that, thanks to the extra-thin construction and the use of silk, you can wear in warmer weather too

100% ORGANZINO SILK

A favourite of the Royals and the wealthy to this day, silk socks have always been synonymous of luxury and elegance as they are a perfect combination of look and feel. Silk, by nature, offers you a beautiful sheen effect, elevated by the extra-thin finish that results in an almost translucent sock. Its thermal and antibacterial properties make these socks wearable all year round.

WOOL & SILK

Merino wool have thinner and less scaled hair, which results in a softer and less itchy fabric compared to the regular sheep’s wool that tends to be very rough on your skin. We can say that in some cases it’s very close to cashmere if it’s yarned as thin as our socks are.

The combination of these two all year round fibres (75% Egyptian cotton - 25% Silk) have extra durability and luxury compared to the 100% cotton collections. Knitted on a 240 needles superfine gauge machine, these socks offer a superb luxurious feel and extra comfort all year round.

The pinnacle of our collection in terms of insulation from the winter weather. But If you are thinking about the heavy, itchy wool sock, well, think again! We present to you these socks in a very subtle pattern that we know works well in business, business casual and casual occasion, so you can maximise the use of them.

MERINO SOCKS

100% EGYPTIAN COTTON

Made 100% from Egyptian Mako cotton they can be worn all year round. Extra thin, yet extremely durable thanks to the Mako cotton variety (long staple cotton yarn) and the process it has been subject to (gassed, mercerized and Fil d'Ecosse).

100% PIMA COTTON

Pima cotton is one of the most luxurious cotton fibres in the world: a kind to skin vegetable fibre which is extremely versatile, hypoallergenic and with insulating properties. Wearable all year round, our Pima cotton collection is very colourful, thus placing itself in the business casual/casual dress code realm. Still, these are extra fine socks, knitted on a 176 needles machine to preserve the softness of this amazing fabric. Personally I like to wear them with Chelsea boots.
