It’s on Sale: Bresciani Over-the-Calf Socks at Mr. Porter

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.
