Size, composition & length
What length are the socks?
Our socks sit mid-calf so that they can work with a range of shoes e.g boots and shoes. They’re perfect for the transition between smart and casual dress. We also think this is the most comfortable option.
We do have some exceptions, including our Knee-length, Pitch Side and Welly socks.
What are the composition of the socks?
There is a reason that most clothes are made of cotton – it is a lightweight but a durable fibre which holds its colour and shape with multiple washes. We think the best everyday socks are Scottish Lisle cotton, which means that the threads are brushed to stop “piling”. The heel, toe and sole are reinforced with a soft but exceptionally strong, man-made fibre called Polyamide. Finally, elastane is used to create a strong hold around the band of the sock, creating the perfect fit around your feet.

Scottish Lisle Cotton - How it is made?
Arguably the highest quality of material used for socks and other accessories due to its attributes, style and quality.
It involves the cotton being mercerized, which is a process, where the cotton is carefully treated in a bath of Sodium Hydroxide allowing it to work its magic on the cotton fibres and in such a way that it makes the material silky to touch. It also means it doesn’t shrink and most importantly with socks, they feel comfortable as well as sleek to look at and wear.
Another trait of the Scottish Lisle Cotton is that the mercerization removes any rough or weaker threads making it stronger and more durable, the strength also comes from the fact two threads are twisted together to make a single, more reinforced thread. The mercerization of the cotton eradicates any off-colouring creating a canvas to dye with rich colours, which is why with our Simply Sartorial collection can achieve such a range of colours from a deep Burgundy to a subtle Skye Blue.
Cotton needs a consistent temperature of between 18-30 degrees to grow as well as fairly dry conditions, which as you probably know couldn’t be further from the Scottish climate, so why is it called Scottish Lisle Cotton? The reason is that the process originated and was first tested there, just like our co-founders, Ryan and Dave.
Although this cotton has been through a process to make it the best quality, to maintain it we suggest a 30-degree wash and with similar coloured materials to avoid dampening any of the vibrancy the Scottish Lisle cotton allows. The unquestionably strong colouring comes from the mercerization as it eradicates any of the unwanted colour from the cotton and this bleaching means the dyed colour is purely the desired colour of the sock
