It all started with the Italian brand Gammarelli which became famous over the years as the provider of red socks for the Cardinals in the Vatican and French Prime minister Edouard Balladur. Two young graduates from business school, Jacques Tiberghien and Vincent Metzger, decided ten years ago to acquire the company and have since travelled a long way around the world. Their cashmere (49€) or vicuna (520€) socks are famous and they now have a magical machine which will make your cotton Lisle socks with the colors of thread you choose. You can wear a pair of socks that is unique in the world! The shop is a delight to visit but you can also order on line and be delivered in 48 hours.
From a small and chic little enterprise, Mes chaussettes rouges have become the leaders of the socks market in the world. After buying an American company specialized in luxurious items, the two partners have developed a singularity and are now the ultimate in socks… whether you live in the US, in Asia or in Europe. Many of this blog readers give them to their friends for their shooting week ends. It is a perfect present for gentlemen who already own everything!And now that nobody wears a tie anymore, socks are the only details that can enliven a suit. Prices start at 18€ and go up to 520€ for vicuna, or 480€ if you decide to order your own design (40€ X 12 pairs at a time) or more … To celebrate their tenth anniversary they also sell a “semainier”, 7 pairs at a time in a pretty red box.
