Pull your socks up




I don't have a photograph, but you can have my footprints. They're upstairs in my socks.” Graucho Marx. Comedian, actor Mrx Brothers fame.


The common or garden sock is an essential bit of kit, that is never really forgotten about by any man worth his salt.

Some may abuse there 'almond rocks' some may just wear any old crap on their plates, but a man worth his salt realises the need for good quality socks, that stand out as a mini-statement of intent.

Richard James socks provide something for everyone with that intent, and the journey from Saville Row shows a fine history of the A-list accessory.

Colours and designs to fill any draw with a touch of class, the Merino wool socks, with hand linked toe are available in medium and large.


The dogtooth socks come in green and grey, with black top, toe and heels.

The plainer socks come with varying heel, toe and tops, with colour ranges including red, light blue and yellow.

The stripe ranges are something for the gent aiming to keep a bit of individuality under more uniform dress,

Providing a thin striped multi-coloured from sky blues, yellow, red on a black or grey sock.

They are a touch of class, maybe the cherry on the icing if you like.

So pull your socks up and dress complete your look.
