Let’s talk about socks. Because as with everything you wear, quality and price go hand in hand. But just because socks aren’t always visible to those around you it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t invest in them.
Nowadays, men are looking for quality in things. It’s about how they feel personally. Besides, a well-made sock makes a world of a difference on your distressed feet.
Since they’re a necessity, why not consider giving the unsung heroes of your wardrobe a well-deserved upgrade? Below, you will find out exactly what you should look for in your next pair–fine details that make all the difference between a standard sock and a quality one. Your hard-working feet will thank you.
Fit–especially in regards to actual shoe size and overall style–is paramount. Sizing should be differentiated, and match your personal shoe size. The right size means your socks will always stay up, and never bind.
As with clothes and shoes, when socks fit right, you’ll reach for them over and over again. They’ll be the go-to socks in your sock drawer, not the ones always left in the back.
You’ll immediately feel the difference. We we focus on using the highest quality yarns. We also use lots of variations in weight, materials, and patterns that are woven into the socks–versus prints.”
Wearing socks made of the natural stuff is a point all fine sock makers agree on.
While quality yarns should be a given, also consider how they’re treated. Extra long staple Egyptian cotton that has been mercerized will far outperform regular combed cotton socks. The mercerization also gives you superior brightness of color, and wicks better than regular cottons–keeping your feet fresher for longer.
Here’s a term you need to know: hand toe-linking. And why? Well, socks need to be stitched together, because they’re comprised of two separate parts (the toe and the body). Conventional socks have over-stitched toe seams, which can rub and irritate. The smooth ‘seamless’ toes make for a more comfortable fit, and better wear. Compared to automated machine linking, hand toe-linking is performed on a machine that’s guided by a skilled person. The process is painstakingly slow, and involves the craftsman precisely matching up the two sock parts to ensure the seam is completely flat and smooth.
Like size, one style doesn’t fit most. To that end, we offer a range of them, including classic, casual, solution-oriented, and sport-specific. Regardless of style, they should always give you comfort and confidence.
Here comes the most important thing you should be paying attention to while purchasing socks. Besides a good grip and the right style, make sure to stick with socks most important role, their functionality.
