The James Bond 60th Anniversary Socks Giftbox - By The London Sock Exchange

Introducing the James Bond 60th Anniversary Socks Giftbox by The London Sock Exchange, a special edition gift set paying tribute to six decades of 007.

This gift set features six pairs of new socks - including four brand new designs and two classic favourites in new colourways - each celebrating iconic moments from the films. 
The socks are presented in a limited edition collector's box with hidden features worthy of Q Branch itself, including a hidden sliding panel detailing a timeline of all 25 Bond films. 
From the finer points of 007's iconic ski-suit as worn in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), to the red carnation which Bond sports in the button-hole of his ivory dinner jacket in Goldfinger (1964) and Spectre (2015) – each pair of socks in the giftbox stands out for its attention to detail.

Details. The set includes The Jetpack, The Off-Piste, The Undercover, The Moonraker, The Double-O and The Agent - and styling notes for each pair. The London Sock Exchange uses a signature 200-needle knitting process to render the imagery with next-level definition. The socks are knitted from the highest quality, sustainably-sourced melange combed cotton yarns – so they don't just look the part, they feel the part too. 

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)

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 inFrom Russia With Love(1963) all the way to the Q-DAR inNo Time To Die(2021). Our pick of Bond’s gadgets arrived inThunderball(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’.

A mix of epic mountain scenery and dramatic snowy slopes have been the perfect conditions for 007 to take on his adversaries over the years: from Bond evading his would-be assassins in the opening sequence to The Spy Who Loved Me(1977), to mistreating that Stradivarius as he careers down the mountains in The Living Daylights (1987), to his thrilling chase of Hinx through the Austrian snow in Spectre (2015). Our pick of Bond’s snow moments is the first time we see Bond take to the mountains, in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service(1969). As 007 escapes Blofeld’s lair high atop the Swiss peak, Piz Gloria, he tackles everything from ski-slopes to a bobsleigh run to an avalanche – all while sporting an immaculate, iconic, royal-blue ski-suit. It’s this iconic sequence which has inspired ‘The Off-Piste’.

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’.

From Japan in the East (You Only Live Twice, 1967) to San Francisco in the West (A View To A Kill, 1985), to Iceland in the North (Die Another Day, 2002) and Madagascar in the South (Casino Royale, 2006): for 60 years we’ve watched 007 journey to the farthest flung corners of the globe as he doggedly undertakes his missions. No journey has taken James Bond anywhere more exotic than his destination in 1979’s Moonraker– in which 007 ventures off the planet and into outer space for the very first time. It’s this groundbreaking, gravity-defying mission which we mark in ‘The Moonraker’.

007 first appeared wearing the iconic ivory dinner jacket in the pre-credits sequence to Goldfinger(1964). Since then, we’ve seen Bond sporting similar evening suits in tropical conditions around the world: from his first encounter with Plenty O’Toole in Diamonds Are Forever(1971), to facing off against Kamal Khan and his Fabergé egg in Octopussy (1983), to riding the Oriental Desert Express across the North African desert in Spectre (2015). It’s been a timeless look for the world’s most famous spy – and has inspired this reissue of ‘The Agent’ design in an all-new sunset purple colourway.

For the last 60 years, we’ve seen every incarnation of James Bond appear in a dinner jacket. It’s how the world met 007 in Dr. No (1962), and the outfit has been his signature look across generations since. By way of tribute, we’ve re-issued the ‘The Double-O’ design in an all-new midnight navy colourway.

Socks can’t change the world. But they can put a smile on your face. Since The London Sock Exchange launched in 2014, they’ve been on a mission to do just that. Today, they’re an independent British design studio dedicated to making amazing socks, for a reasonable price, and upholding the highest standards in sustainability. From their British studio they conceive socks which are playful, contemporary and full of charm. They then work with carefully-selected partners and manufacturers to ensure the highest, most ethical standards in crafting their socks. That means every single pair is knitted with 200 needles for next-level detail and a finer, stronger finish, and is finished by hand for a seamless fit.
