LONDON SOCK COMPANY

By Adam Saturday 3rd Jan, 2015

A few weeks ago we were introduced to the chaps behind the London Sock Company.

A Dapper Chapper should know that detail is important, right down to their socks. Inspired by British heritage, they make style more convenient for the modern gentleman & we therefore introduce London’s first stylish sock and sock subscription brand.

 The Story Behind The Brand….

The inspiration began with five stylish, elegant and rather well-to-do Victorian gentlemen.  Each hailed from a different corner of the British Empire, but were captured together in a unique image dated 1883.  After being passed down with a collection of Victorian artefacts, it sparked an intriguing journey back to a time of true elegance, style and the British gentleman.

It was in the heart of one of London’s oldest markets, made famous by its beautiful Victorian design, that the initial idea for London Sock Co. was born.

The aim for the London Sock Company is now simply to serve the true gentlemen among us; helping to achieve the style and elegance of that famous Victorian era, with a modern twist.  The Victorians were famous for innovation and so, London Sock Co. has one stylish foot firmly in the 21st Century.

For the traditional modern gentleman, they offer their staple product of simplistic and elegant design; a luxury range of stylish, colourful socks, available to buy online and in selected boutiques.

For the forward-thinking gentleman, requiring style and convenience, they offer a unique, monthly Sock Club subscription.  As well as enjoying luxury products, this gentleman enjoys the convenience of new socks delivered through his letterbox, every month.  The Sock Club gentry also enjoy the freedom to choose their styles, how many pairs per month and of course, the flexibility to pause or cancel anytime.

The Socks….

The socks have been developed in close partnership with talented London Designers and a quality family sock maker of over 100 years expertise. The first range encompasses classic British style with superior comfort and fit. They are finely knitted using the most vibrant, luxury Scottish Lisle Thread Cotton.

You can browse the socks in the shop here:  The Shop.

Hat’s off to them too, for their Pull Your Socks Up Campaign which helps homeless people in London stay warm. To learn more click here.
