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 Jetpack" James Bond Socks by The London Sock Exchange pays homage to the iconic Sean Connery scene from Thunderball (1965).
Backstory. Inspired by the many tools, gadgets and technologies which have been issued to 007 by Q Branch: from the not-so-ordinary black leather case in From Russia With Love (1963) all the way to the Q-DAR in No Time To Die (2021). Our pick of Bond’s gadgets arrived in Thunderball (1965): as Bond escapes from the roof of a SPECTRE-infested château, he deploys his special-issue Bell Rocket Belt to take to the skies and evade his adversaries once more. It’s this iconic moment we pay homage to in ‘The Jetpack’.
Details. A turquoise sock with mini 007 motifs in a jetpack from the film. 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. Wear these alongside your go-to grey flannel suit and trusted brown chukka boots – you’ll have elevated your outfit in a flash.
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.
