Meet your new sock drawer standouts.
A good pair of socks keeps your feet warm. A great pair of socks does it with a dash of outfit-boosting color, extra-soft fabric, and construction that'll keep ‘em stepping for years to come. These options have all that and then some, with a versatile range of patterns and styles to brighten your day with a bit of personality.
Each pair comes from Etiquette Clothiers, who’ve mastered the art of men’s basics with a special attention to detail. Their soft, strong yarns, detail-driven craftsmanship, and sophisticated design add up to collections as refined and style-forward as they are comfortable on-foot. Each of their socks is knit from the finest fabric blends in 240 seconds – twice that of the competition, for extra-careful construction – to create a finished product with all the right details.
These wardrobe essentials are all constructed on some of the industry's finest 168- and 200-needle knitting machines in Etiquette's Italian textile studio, with Italian combed cotton yarns. What's combed cotton? That means the fibers undergo a specialized mechanical process that lightly brushes the exterior of each thread with super-fine metal bristles, removing even miniscule impurities and tiny bits of uneven fabric, to create a uniformly smooth and soft handfeel. And since the process weeds out fraying fibers, leaving only straight and evenly-sized threads that won’t wear out, the resulting socks are extra durable to boot (you can feel free to machine wash 'em and tumble dry low).
That high-end cotton is blended with nylon, which adds both sweat-wicking properties and even more durability, thanks to the exceptionally high natural strength of the fibers. Add just a little bit of elastane for stretch, knit 'em up in a range of rakish styles, and you've got something really special on hand. Or foot.
