Choosing Men's Wool Argyle Socks
There's nothing like a classic pair of men's wool argyle socks. When it comes to fashion, this pattern will always be a go-to for those with sophisticated style, for more casual occasions.
Although its history is debated, many would say the pattern originates from a Scottish background. Throughout the past eras, this design has become fashionable and highly accepted by the masses including dukes, golfers, and war veterans alike. Argyle was a highly sought-after pattern in the late 18th century and still remains one of those designs that never goes out of style. When choosing men's wool argyle socks, what do we look for? Our answer: merino wool. More specifically...men's blue argyle socks.
Pantherella Merino Wool Socks
Pros: Wool is breathable and allows moisture to evaporate. Merino wool dress socks might sound like they'd keep your feet too warm in the winter months, but they actually keep your feet temperature regulated. This means it keeps your toes cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We're all about the dual functionality and all-year wear!
Cons: Despite being breathable, it will take longer for the moisture to actually wick away. However, merino wool socks do a better job at this. Wool can also be thicker than cotton, so if you're looking for a thinner sock, this kind won't be for you! Wool doesn't sound like your thing? Cotton is a great alternative.

Consensus: If you're looking for easy-to-care-for, all-around-good-socks, merino wool is a great option because it maintains its shape and durability over time. Also, this type of wool isn't itchy (bonus!). Check out our favorite Pantherella men's wool argyle dress socks here.
