How long has Pantherella been around?
Since 1937, Pantherella has been making top-quality socks from behind its famous blue door. The company started life as Midlands Hosiery Mills, a factory specialising in women's hosiery but by 1945 its name had changed to ‘Pantherella Fine English Socks’ and it was selling to gentlemen. The switch was driven by Louis Goldschmidt, who believed in rethinking the classic style of men’s socks that at the time were bulky and uncomfortable. In their place, Pantherella started crafting socks that were sleeker, lighter and more stylish than ever before.
What is so special about Pantherella Socks?
Pantherella has never been afraid to set a precedent. While many other manufacturers have turned to cheaper methods of production and cost-cutting materials, Pantherella still makes all of its English socks right behind the famous blue door of its family-owned Leicester factory. Its core philosophy of 'Provenance, Design & Quality' is as true today as it was in 1945, though you’ll find that Pantherella’s range has considerably expanded since those early days. Now, you’ll find a wealth of colourful and visually striking socks in a wide range of exceptionally crafted materials from classic cotton to luxury merino wool and cashmere.
How do you wash Pantherella socks?
No matter the pair of Pantherella socks you purchase, we’d always recommend turning them inside out, breaking out a box of anti-bacterial detergent and washing them at 30 degrees Celsius. Turning them inside out means that all of the lingering bacteria and dead skin will be washed out, while the lower temperature means each was will be more environmentally friendly (and cheaper). Of course, if you want to ensure that all bacterial traces are obliterated from your socks, you can still wash on a gentle cycle at 60 degrees Celsius. But we wouldn’t recommend that. It’s not as environmentally friendly and the higher temperatures could compromise the longevity of your Pantherella socks.
