Burlington’s »Edinburgh« knee sock with original argyle design
Simultaneously stylish and functional, Burlington’s »Edinburgh« knee socks feature a traditional Scottish design. While the shafts of the socks are smooth knit, a ribbed cuff at the top of each sock ensures a perfect fit on the leg. Thanks to their fine Merino wool composition, these men’s socks are the perfect choice for winter and summer alike.
Tasteful knee socks made of fine Merino wool
The secret behind Burlington’s »Edinburgh« knee socks lies in the premium material from which they are made; namely, fine wool taken from the Merino sheep. This special breed of fine-wool sheep is known for producing some of the best wool fibres in the world—Merino sheep are renowned for having coats that are even in length and extraordinarily thick. Fine Merino wool threads ensure that these men’s socks are highly breathable and retain their colour and form.
Burlington’s »Edinburgh« knee socks also consist of 25% synthetic fibres, which make them extremely resistant to abrasion and wear, particularly around the top of the heel. Last but not least, each meticulously constructed sock feature a hand-stitched toe that makes the sock easy to put on and take off, which in turn prevents this part of the sock from uncomfortably pinching the foot.
Royal quality—Burlington’s »Edinburgh« knee socks
Burlington numbers among the world’s best manufacturers of refined hosiery. This traditional company’s calling card is the diamond-shaped argyle pattern, which hearkens back to the distinctive tartans worn by Scottish clans in the 18th century. These stylish men’s socks gained great popularity through Edward VIII, the Prince of Wales, who liked to wear them when playing golf.
Burlington’s »Edinburgh« knee socks feature a colourful design that makes them particularly well suited for wear during leisure time. That being said, these patterned socks are also an excellent choice for less-formal workplaces. One caveat—these men’s socks must be tastefully combined with the rest of the outfit. Follow this rule of thumb: while the main colour of the socks should match your trousers, the colours in the patterning should be repeated in your jumper or shirt.
Burlington’s »Edinburgh« knee socks are available in double sizes 40 through 46 and 46 through 50, as well as in the colours red, blue, indigo, navy blue, blue/red/grey, middle brown, dark brown, black/blue, black/brown, black/grey and anthracite.
