Free your creativity and let yourself be carried away by your desire to express yourself. After all, a true gentleman doesn't need to lie to himself: he knows what he wants and how to get it.

Before leaving we wanted to remind you that there are 5 important precautions you must have when choosing your men's socks:

  1. the socks must not have excess fabric because it can cause annoying rubbing that is unbearable.
  2. the fit of shoes is influenced by the type of socks you choose and for this reason you should always try on socks with the shoes you plan to wear.
  3. if the shoe is narrow it will be preferable to wear a pair of thin socks . If, on the other hand, the shoe is a little wider, use thick socks that will offer you a better fit.
  4. watch the length of the socks . Remember these three rules: Longer socks for special occasions or so-called businessman looks; average for everyday life; short for a casual and sporty outfit.
  5. remember that it would not hurt to opt for custom-made socks . Nobile creates them with the intention of offering socks that are perfectly in line with your needs.

Unlike other hosiery factories, Nobile stockings are not produced in an industrial way, but go through a quality control at each stage of production which combines the work of the machine with the manual work of the craftsman. Finally, each sock is inspected, ironed and washed by hand.
