I’m a firm believer in “buy right, buy once”. Invest in quality products and they will last. The latest addition to my wardrobe is a beautiful pair of bespoke monogrammed socks from British heritage brand Pantherella Fine English Socks.
October 2015, saw Pantherella launch its latest bespoke service – a brand new luxury socks monogramming service. Available in the classic cotton lisle ‘Danvers’ sock, you can choose from one of nine colours including cumin, scarlet and crocus. Given the choice of colours you might think of my choice of grey and gold a little boring but I like to think of it as “classic understated elegance”. Yep, that’s me alright.
The socks can be personalised with up to seven initials or numbers in either gold or pewter grey adding a truly bespoke touch to your everyday look. I was tempted to have something clever embroidered but opted for my initials. Again, keep it simple Daniel. I received my Danvers carefully wrapped in tissue paper within a beautiful presentation box. Everything about the experience from building my order on the website to the delivery is pure class. All well suited to the distinguished gentleman I think I am. These personalised socks make the perfect gift for special occasions. For example, Christmas gifts or for the groomsmen of a wedding party.
I love the history of Pantherella. They first opened in 1937 and began trading as Midlands Hosiery Mills, an established women’s hosiery factory. By the end of the war, the name changed and Pantherella Fine English Socks was born. Pantherella hold firm in their belief in high quality products and are still today making all of their fine English socks behind the blue door at the family owned factory in Leicester.
Available in UK men’s sizes 6 to 15, the monogramming service will be available for from October 2015 for £20.00 at www.pantherella.com
