Our Super-Fine Bird's Eye Patterned Cotton Dress Sock is the pinnacle of patterned cotton dress socks. These socks are classics and are available in five colors and three sizes. The fine birdseye pattern is knitted using the finest mercerized Egyptian cotton on 260-needle machines and produces a subtle, elegant pattern that practically disappear on your feet they are so comfortable.

There is no finer cotton dress sock in existence than the Egyptian Mako Cotton used to knit these socks. Knitted using a 260-needle machine, which only three companies in all of Italy possess, and the finest Egyptian Mako Cotton available, our Palatino Super-Fine Dress Sock allows for superior breathability and all but disappears on your foot because they are so thin. With the three available sizes, our Super-Fine Cotton Dress Socks fit like a glove and will not clam your feet.

The availability three sizes allow a perfect fit without bunching, while the 260-needle knit produces a very 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.

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.
