Whether giving them or treating yourself to some finer footwear, here’s our roundup of this winter’s most fashionable socks for men.
Gucci – Gg-jacquard Wool-Blend Socks
A deep and versatile navy is contrasted with a yellow gold jacquard pattern evocative of Gucci’s icon lineage. Traditional style wool cuffs make sure these Italian made socks are kept in place (because there’s nothing worse than a slipping sock inside your shoe), while a mid-weight wool fibre provides winter warmth.
Pantherella – Spirit Logo-jacquard Cotton-blend Socks
Opt for a retro sporty vibe with these nostalgic cream and blue socks. The Egyptian cotton blend is super soft, incorporating a ventilated construction for breathability. Cushion soles provide additional comfort and make them ideal for light and strenuous activity.
Vetements – X Reebok Logo-jacquard Cotton-Blend Socks
Make a statement with this bold pair. Made from a knitted cotton blend, they feature striking logo jacquard and ribbed cuffs in burgundy, red and grey. Complete the look with a pair of vintage Reeboks and hit the gym.
Paul Smith – Pack Of Two Cotton-Blend Socks
Offering affordable luxury, these monochrome socks showcase the designer’s signature stripe. A playful pairing, the set comes with both striped and spotty socks, leaving you the option to match them up or mix the patterns for an alternative zany look. Made from a cotton blend, they have a little stretch.
Falke – No. 13 Ribbed Pima-cotton Blend Socks
Shop classic camel for the socks that’ll go with everything. This pair from sock specialist Falke is crafted from a blend of premium Pima cotton. The fine yet strong Pima fibre is cultivated in Giza, Egypt and spun in Italy – adding an air of exoticism to your sock drawer. Falke’s design also has articulated stress zones for long term wear.
London Sock Company – Simply Sartorial Rib-Knitted Cotton-Blend Socks
For a quintessentially British look, opt for this English brand and these whimsical vintage-Esque socks. An eye-catching mint green cotton-blend jersey is offset by a charming sewn-on penny-farthing logo in navy blue – all for an excellent price. Wear them to feel like a true gent about town.
Ami – Pack Of Three Ami De Coeur Cotton-Blend Socks
This attractive gift pack sports the Ami de Coeur logo in a striking red, against a dramatic black background. The motif is, in fact, the signature of label founder Alexandre Mattiussi, used for signing off his letters since childhood. The plain body of the sock makes them perfect under work trousers, with the added panache of an occasionally revealed Ami de Coeur logo.
Ralph Lauren Purple Label- Ribbed Cashmere-Blend Socks
Dark nights don’t have to mean dark clothing. Dazzle in these bright orange socks from preppy casual wear specialist Ralph Lauren.

Gucci- Gg Supreme-Intarsia Cotton-Blend Socks
Distinctly Gucci, these lightweight socks are adorned with the iconic interlocking Gs. Brown and camel colours are joined by another signature feature – the red and green web stripe synonymous with the label. Add a matching Gucci holdall to complete the branded look.
Falke – Shadow Sand Ribbed Cotton Socks
This German family-run label’s luxury hosiery has proven a firm favourite amongst celebrities, since its inception in the late 1800s. These neutral coloured fil d’Ecosse cotton socks are ribbed with a designer-stamped sole and crafted from 100% cotton.
