Welcome to The London Sock Exchange x 007 Anniversary Edition, a very special James Bond Socks collection celebrating some of the most memorable moments from the film series. "The Undercover" James Bond Socks by The London Sock Exchange pays homage to Bond in stealth mode as seen through the film series.
Backstory. In 60 years’ worth of missions, we’ve often seen 007 working in full stealth mode. From an assasination assignment in Bratislava (The Living Daylights, 1987) to infiltrating the Ice Palace, Iceland (Die Another Day, 2002), to picking up the enemy’s trail in the ruins of the former MI6 HQ in London (Spectre, 2015), Bond works best when he’s lightly armed, disguised under the darkness of a black turtleneck. It’s also how we see Bond in one of our favourite 007 sequences, as he arrives on the Caribbean island of San Monique in Live And Let Die (1973) – armed only with his wits and Smith and Wesson Model 29, carried in a brown leather shoulder holster. It’s this iconic moment which has inspired ‘The Undercover’.
Details. A rich ruby sock with mini 007 motifs in black with gun holster. Each and every sock is crafted for comfort and style, woven with 200 needles - the highest gauge used on socks. Due to the density of this weave, the socks are not only finer but also stronger than your average pair. The toe is handlinked for a perfect, seamless finish and maximum comfort. Each James Bond Socks pair is finished with a honeycomb welt, to give a more comfortable, flexible fit around the calf.
Material. 69% cotton, 30% nylon, 1% elastane. The sock is principally constructed out of cotton; the finer nylon fibre is used for the detailed motifs and elastane is used in the ankle band to make sure it stays up on the calf.
Size. 7-12 (UK) / 41-47 (EU)
Styling notes. Match them with a black knitted turtle-neck, charcoal strides and low-key sneakers and you’ll be all set to step into stealth mode.
The maker. When school friends Dan and Oli founded The London Sock Exchange in 2014, they ripped up the rulebook when it comes to making high-quality high-street socks. Since then, they've been on a mission: to make the ultimate luxury sock for the many. That means each pair of socks is finished by hand, for seamless comfort. It means each of the socks features a unique honey-comb welt up top, for greater flexibility and fit on the calf. And it means each pair feature only the best in British design, each woven with 200 needles for a finer, stronger finish.
