Scott Nichol Country Socks
There is something about a nice chunky knit sock that confers an atmosphere of relaxation and comfort on any day of the week, but something especially appropriate about them for weekend wear. Folding down a nice Fairisle over the top of your walking boots before setting forth over crisp leaf litter in an autumn woodland, or padding lazily around the house in a slouchy cable knit before coming to rest fireside under a coverlet of Sunday newspapers.
As any father of a teenage girl knows, it’s the covetable chunky knit socks that disappear mysteriously, only to reappear worn with Ugg boots and Jack Wills sweatpants. We recommend not only immediate re-stocking, but also utmost secrecy regarding the location of your sock collection to protect it from pilfering female family members.
Scott Nichol is a brand replete with supremely comfortable, traditional, hand finished socks made from the finest yarns. Their country socks range epitomises all that is marvellous about chunky knit socks; rustic FairIsle and Donegal patterns, strong cable knits in autumnal shades, a home knit feel, softest cashmere, alpaca and merino wool and hand linked toes, for wrinkle free comfort.
In addition the restful Snowflake Jacquard and traditional Donegal Contrast Heal and Toe are machine washable – useful information if you plan on exercising your socks on muddy moors and scrubby hills.
For the shooting fraternity, Scott Nichol also make exceptional machine washable, long length shooting socks in tweed, or feeder stripes, with contrasting turn-over-tops, available in Alpaca or Shetland wool mixes. The ruby red and ochre shades sit particularly well in the rural landscape.
Such is the appeal of the Scott Nichol sock that top men’s style magazine GQ have Scott Nichol chunky knits marked as one of their top style tips for working the country look successfully. But….shhhh, don’t let the girls know!
