A Comparison of the Leading Designer Socks Brands

In terms of quality all the designer brands use high quality fabrics in their mens socks, blended for durability. Falke go that extra mile in manufacturing hard wearing socks, and have developed a reputation throughout Europe. All socks are manufactured in Germany, and have a reinforced heel and toe (and in some cases additional stress zones).

They are also the experts in using new technology such as using silver ions for freshness, anti-bacterial cotton and climate regulating fabrics. Falke have recently developed an ergonomic comfort system which has a patented ergonomically shaped sole area for an optimum fit. A combination of natural and functional fibres provides a breathable climate, and an innovative cushioning applied to the inside of the sole adds extra comfort.

When it comes to fashion socks that are about exciting colour and pattern, the fashion brands come into their own. Whilst Falke manufactures fashion stripes and argyles, it is only a small percentage of their overall range. Having said that, they offer some bold and exciting colours in their plain mens socks, such as; magenta, blueberry, lime green, wine and Swedish Blue.

Pantherella focus more on fashion, and are responsible for the collection of Richard James socks. Duchamp-London, a premium mens accessories brand, produce the most striking mens socks in both pattern and colour. They are particularly well known for their Harlequin pattern (also used in their cufflinks), which is made up of bold stripes that are divided into chequered squares. Ted Baker is famous for its quirky sense of humour, which shows through in their mens socks via playful patterns that experiment with the conventional stripe and spot.

Emporio Armani is a truly refined brand and focuses mainly on muted colours and subtle patterns, all decorated with the highly distinctive eagle logo in a contrasting colour. For an argyle sock, Burlington is the most well known and respected. Now owned and manufactured by Falke, they are high quality socks offering huge choice in vibrant colour combinations.
