Some reasonably priced Fair Isle socks, our favourite festive hoisery, courtesy of Scott Nichol. The Leicestershire based company has been producing socks for quite some time now. Their trademark is the ‘Hand-linked toe’ which gives the sock an almost seamless finish, strengthening them and protecting you from any unsightly big toe poke through. The finish also makes them incredibly comfortable which is pretty much job number one. Thick boot socks that will keep you warm as well as stylish, a Made in England cotton mix, available at Oi Polloi.
