These beautiful flat weave dress socks are a blend of 70% silk and 30% nylon. They are made exclusively for Budd by the famous British hosier Pantherella. The ¾ length means they come up to the narrow part of the leg just below the knee; this allows them to stay up all day or evening. The socks have been specifically designed to wear with velvet dress slippers, as formal etiquette dictates that the weave or pattern of the sock must not distract from the overall look. However they can be worn on any occasion if you want to enjoy the luxury of fine silk!
