Dual comfort: Falke »Airport« knee socks for men
Stylish men once had to choose between cotton and pure new wool socks. Falke »Airport« knee socks mean they no longer have to sacrifice one for the other. On the outside, fine, pure new wool taken from Merino sheep ensures temperature regulation, while cotton on the inside softly nuzzles against the skin. This dual construction is made possible by a special knitting technique—cladding.
2-layer wool/cotton blend—Falke »Airport« knee socks
In »Airport« knee socks, produced by the traditional knitted-goods company Falke, the inside and outside layers are made with different kinds of thread. They’re combined using a special knitting technique known as »cladding«. The results speak for themselves: high-quality Merino wool on the outside regulates temperature and preserves shape and colour, while fine cotton on the inside pampers the foot. The soft cotton fibres on the interior are extremely durable, low-maintenance, and have a soothing, cooling effect at high temperatures. A delicate elastic band further reinforces the fit of these men’s socks.
Falke »Airport« knee socks feature a comfortable shaft length of 50 centimetres, and end in a traditional cuff. Average cuffs measure 5 to 8 centimetres in length; the cuff on these socks has been extended to 17 centimetres, guaranteeing a firm grip on your leg.
Falke »Airport« knee socks are further distinguished by hand-linked toes. During the linking process, the exposed stitch courses on the tube of the sock are hand-stuck onto the needle roller, then combined with one another. As a result, no discernible seam is left behind on the inside of these men’s socks, which in turn prevents uncomfortable pressure points from forming. Moreover, the heels, upper heels, soles, and toes are reinforced with fine polyamide fibres, which enhance firmness and durability while preventing wrinkles from forming.
The secret’s in the details—Falke’s »Airport« knee socks
Falke »Airport« knee socks are available in several colours. An anthracite suit worn with brown shoes is best paired with grey or dark blue socks. A navy suit, dark blue tie, and black shoes, on the other hand, cut a good figure with dark blue socks. Those with style and boldness to boot can combine the self-same navy model with wine-red socks—this look also works well with a wine-red tie. Brown socks, while oft-maligned, flatter brown tweed and corduroy suits, which would also work well with bottle-green socks.
