I've tried Pantherella and Falke. The former makes in England and the quality is similar to Bresciani.Anyone know about these sock makers:
btw, l feel I understand why viccel is cheaper, and l feel I understand why fxh says their wool socks wear out quickly. I feel their weave is loser with wool socks, and l feel the handwork isn't as good as the top makers because they have nubs on the side of the toes where-as the top makers don't.
Falke is made in Germany (AFAIK) and they normally make blends with some polyester. Airport and Tiago ranges are cheap and long-lasting plain ribbed cotton socks. Lhasa is a cashmere/wool/poly blend sock, ideally for winter use and very very durable.
Generally, Falke is less refined, thicker and more durable than Bresciani.
