Bertie Bassett is the kind of colourful character we think we’d get along with, and in the Pantheon of food mascots he stands head and shoulders above the rest. Tony the Tiger is a bit too bold and brash. The Caramel bunny looks as though her morals might be rather loose. And the Jolly Green Giant is always disappointingly sedate. Bertie, meanwhile, is a man of the people, a quirky geezer, a veritable Jack the lad who gets along with all sorts. Pun intended. These Liquorice AllSOXKS are our sartorial tribute to one of England’s best-known sugary sons and confectionery exports.

SOXKS was founded in 2013 by Matt Bowden and Arthur Burnand (pictured). Both originally from the UK, Arthur and Matt hope to bring some creative energy, a sense of humour, and a philosophical approach to the world of hosiery.
SOXKS’ focus is on quirky design, high quality products, and attention to detail. Each SOXKS design has an inspirational story behind it, and with our unique packaging concept, hand-stitched toes, and embroidered logo, SOXKS are highly original products that stand out from the crowd.
SOXKS are made in a small, family-owned sock workshop in the town of Shetou, Taiwan. We take pride in the fact that while many brands use impersonal, large-scale suppliers, we know each person working on our SOXKS personally.
Our website, SOXKS.com, will launch in mid-August 2013.
