Our Scianel socks are inspired by one of our favourite characters in the gritty Neapolitan crime drama. Scianel is a lady who likes nice things and is probably one of the hardest people we have ever seen depicted on TV. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing is up to you like. Although we couldn’t get her famous bum bag on a pair of socks, I think we have done a good job of highlighting her distinctive sense of style. In a break with tradition we have even done these socks in smaller sizes, it is probably what Scianel would want.
Each sock has CALZiNi TRiCKETT emblazoned on the toe in purple and are just below knee length. Our socks are made by Marina and her family in Brescia, which is the home of Italian socks. Each pair is lovingly crafted in the family factory, which sits in a sleepy town in the famous region. Just to make things extra exciting, each pair of socks is hand fastened (by the mother of the family) at the toe using pink thread, a traditional technique used in Italy, to ensure that the socks have been inspected and stay together.
An Italian-made pair of socks, manufactured to this standard, for this price. Crikey! Forza Calze!
