Country of Origin: United States
The Kennedy lux athletic sock - inspired by a photo of JFK on a yacht watching America's cup, it reads as both retro and modern. The 35th President of the United States was our most stylish, and the combo of trousers and these athletic socks stands the test of time.
Our friends at American Trench brought back this iconic style in cotton, and we're thrilled to offer it as an Epaulet exclusive in a luxurious extra-fine Merino wool blend! They are one size, and work for mens shoe sizes 8 through 13.
Each sock is crafted in 73% merino wool, 18% nylon, 7% polyester, and 2% spandex. The wool gives it an impossibly soft hand and comfortable breathablity. The synthetic elements add durability and elasticity. The final product retains the casual look of the original item, but with an elevated degree of luxury.
This crew length sock has both a vintage and a contemporary casual style that pairs well with boots, sneakers, mocs, or wingtips.
25 pairs were made in each colorway. Knit in Reading, PA at a hosiery factory that has been at the same location for close to forty years. The factory is seven times larger than its original footprint and is the last remaining hosiery mill in the Reading area. These socks are a piece of history in more ways than one!
