“ Ben Sherman / Socks gift pack. „
Its fair to say that a few weeks ago when my mate handed me a pack of 5 Ben Sherman socks I was a little surprised to say the least at recieving them. Not only are they aimed at men, as Ben Sherman is a mans brand after-all but also the socks look pretty masculine and my friend knows how girly I am!
My friend though purchased them for £15.00 in the Kays catalogue not stopping to think they were a mans sock for me with the idea that they would be thick and warm, suitable for wearing in my boots! (Nice thought eh?! lol).
They came in a see-through plastic bag which told me what they were on the front and who they were by. These socks come in sizes 6-9 (my size) and 9-12 (please note these particular socks are not on sale in Kays longer for some reason in these sizes).
What you get is a pack of 5 socks, 2 dark navy pairs with a red target on the side, 2 grey pairs with a red target on the side and 1 white pair...again with a target in red, navy and blue colours on one side then on the top of each sock the word Ben Sherman is stitched in and the heels of the socks are red coloured as are each toe section.....so contrasting socks they are.
They are made from cotton and fully machine washable of course. Rather thick but feet 'breath' well in them, these are comfortable, soft and warming and I am impressed with how well they wash up, are suitable for popping in the tumble drier and never seem to need ironing (not that I do with socks though lol).
They haven't frayed or shrunk over time, are a smart sock but I think best suited to the men in our lives unless us ladies want the butch appearance but they really are comfortable under my boots as they are so smooth to wear!
Although not currently on sale in the adult sizes (boys sizes are available from Kays at the moment) these can be bought from other outlets, just google if interested...though I have recently spotted these same pack of 5 socks for sale in T.J Hughes for £10.00!
