Nothing gets holiday shoppers revved up like HOT SOCK DEALS. Over the calf socks from Bresciani are among the many items on sale at Mr. Porter right now. I enjoy browsing the big ticket items during Porter’s seasonal sales (act fast: only a couple Brioni shearling fishtail parkas left) but the stuff that ends up in my cart tends to be smaller bore but not regularly discounted–good socks and underwear; belts and basic sweaters. Over the calf socks are not as easy to find as you might think, and they do indeed stay up, so even with a Thom Browne trouser break you won’t be exposing wrinkled socks or your unsightly calves. No sock garters required. I have a few pairs of Bresciani socks, which are made in Bergamo in Northern Italy, and they are at least on par with makers like Pantherella. You can also find a nice selection of Bresciani socks at A Suitable Wardrobe.
