It’s difficult to relax and be comfortable if your feet don’t feel good so a top quality pair of socks is an essential. And what’s more, although a pair of gentleman’s socks may not be on display very often, a flash of ankle can soon provide a tell-tale sign of class and sophistication.
Pantherella socks are amongst the finest in the world and produced in the very heart of England, giving them a very authentic appearance and a luxurious feel. Loved by men all around the world for decades, Pantherella is a brand which offers simple elegance matched with comfort and practicality, the perfect combination for a sock.
Pantherella is a truly English brand, having been created in the heart of the country in Leicestershire and remained there ever since.
Originally trading as Midlands Hosiery Mills, it began life in 1937 as a factory for women’s hosiery. But less than 10 years later and it wasn’t just the name that had changed; Pantherella had switched its focus to fine socks for gentlemen.
Louis Goldschmidt was the brains behind the outfit and he had a vision about how fine gauge socks should look. Eschewing the bulky and uncomfortable designs of the era, he created a whole new type of sock for men: seamless and lightweight, but extremely stylish too.
A local machine manufacturer was persuaded to create a brand new type of machine for the project and before long, the new design of sock was launched and a star was born. Before too long Pantherella’s started to sit up and take note but it was too late: Pantherella had already begun to forge a name for itself as a premium provider of quality class socks.
By the 1940s Pantherella was exporting their socks all over the world, eventually exporting as much as three quarters of their products, such was their success.
Although Pantherella are today a global phenomenon in the sock world, and a name that every company in the industry knows and respects, they have remained true to their roots.
Pantherella still have their base behind the famous blue door in Leicestershire, where the family owns the factory to this very day.
“Provenance, quality and design” was the motto of Pantherella when they set out and they remain committed to these principles as much as they ever were.
Since the introduction of those very first lightweight socks all those decades ago, Pantherella have continued to innovate and lead the market yet have never sacrificed the quality and their standards for using the very best materials.
Natural products such as premium grade merino wool combined with a small amount of nylon for extra stretch help to provide their socks with an understated sophistication and great comfort too.
