Wanted; white knee socks.

Postby de Coverley » Sun Jul 23, 2017 1:16 am

I'm looking for white knee socks in a period fabric (wool, cotton, silk? ) appropriate to a noble man of the Playford or Regency era.

If you can supply, or suggest a supplier, to order or from stock, please tell me below, or by PM.

It all depends on how authentic you want to be - pure wool or cotton will be hard to find unless you can source an outfitter for Court Judges! However if you don't mind a cotton / polyester or similar mix try a Google search - 'LONG KNEE LENGTH WHITE COTTON SOCKS' and you will find various suppliers selling for £1.99 upwards ...........also have a look in Primark!

Just had another thought - also have a look at white 'travel socks' most of which are cotton rich but you need to see the health warning!

IMPORTANT Before using compression socks, seek medical advice if you have previously suffered from venous or arterial disease, or if you have suffered from diabetes.
