|William Abraham Rake Seersucker socks, 70% Coton Fil D'Ecosse, 30% silk|
The socks look very beautiful and the silk mix sounds most appealing, but the price for the 3 pairs I preferred were approx. €200 including postage and import taxes to Europe; a tad over my budget at the moment.
I am quite satisfied with my 100% fil d'ecosse cotton socks from Bresciani. They've over time become my favourite city socks with their beautiful colours, quality and sense of panache: priced at €22 a pair at Mes Chausettes Rouges, Paris.
|Bresciani navy contrast socks, 100% Coton Fil D'Ecosse|
|The Brescianis matched with my POW check flannel suit|
|The socks look beautiful with the dark leaf colour of my Cheaney's|
|Consider matching your socks with your tie. Here matched with my navy/wine Shantung silk tie from Drakes London|
Mes Chausettes Rouge are getting more elegant and bold designs in stock that will satisfy my needs; e.g. Pink dots and Red contrast stripes
|Pink dots, 100% Coton Fil D'Ecosse|
|Red contrast rib, 100% Coton Fil D'Ecosse|
But one fine day I will get my silk stockings from William Abrahams, I guess...
