Palatino Giotto Small Dot Melange Cotton Dress Sock is an elegant, formal dress sock. The subtle small-dot pattern provides visual contrast while the beautiful melange knit creates texture. This sock is named after Giotto di Bondone, a Italian painter and architect from Florence that is widely considered to be one of the forefathers of the Italian Renaissance.

The sock is knit on a 240-needle machine from a 92x2 100% mercerized Egyptian Cotton yarn. The all-cotton, mercerized cotton construction yields a light, comfortable and cool cotton sock that has a beautiful, light sheen.

The availability three sizes allow a perfect fit without bunching, while the 240-needle knit produces a fine, thin sock that is slightly sheer in appearance and incredibly comfortable. Proper dress socks should be thin, which prevents the sock from getting in the way of a well-fitting leather dress shoe. The problem with most cotton dress socks these days is that they knit too thick, which is inappropriate for fine (properly fitting) dress shoes and is what causes one's foot to become clammy towards the end of the day.

A Note on Sock Care
Fine dress socks require special care. Because of how finely these socks are knit, long toe nails will quickly and easily saw through the end of these socks. Although it goes without saying for most of our customers, it is important to properly trim your toenails in order to prevent holes from appearing. If they do appear, Kirby recommends trying your hand at darning the socks to repair the holes.

Proper washing of fine dress socks will also significantly prolong their life. We recommend reading our tutorial on How to Wash Socks. A little bit of extra care goes a long way.

Based in Rome, Palatino is a family-run business that maintains total control over its manufacturing processes, which continue to be based within its small Rome workshop.

About Giza 70 Mako Cotton
Our socks are knitted with the best extra-long staple Egyptian Giza 70 cotton available, from plantations cultivated in a small area east of the Nile Delta - Kafir S'Ad - representing just 0.4% of the total cotton production in Egypt. The result is an incredibly soft, yet relatively durable yarn that allows Palatino to knit these incredibly thin, soft, and comfortable Super Fine Cotton Socks. There is no finer cotton sock available.
