Men’s Style Tip: Winter Socks Guide for Men

Choosing the right winter socks for the cold weather, as well as the right footwear, is essential to staying warm, dry, and of course stylish.

As the temperature dips and everyone prepares themselves for the onset of winter, it’s important to make sure your sock drawer provides you with the options you need to look cool, but stay warm. Everything from material choices, knit style and length can make a difference, so we have curated a selection of London Sock Company styles for your cool weather wardrobe.


Winter socks should be made from thicker cotton, and our Shaken & Stirred styles are the perfect thickness for those colder months, while still being wearable with dress shoes. We use soft, silky smooth Scottish Lisle Cotton yarns, blended man-made fibres for stretch-fit, so each pair of socks combines comfort, colour and durability.
