Craftsmanship

Shooting Socks

Essential for the British shooter, our field socks tend to be subtle, with rich heather tones and dark natural colours.

Made this way for more than half a century

The ‘classic’ Purdey sock comes from Scotland.

There, the body, heel and toe are crafted on a cylindrical ‘knitting machine’. This is a beautiful work of mechanical movement, originally built in the 1950s and still making Purdey socks to this day.

These remarkable machines are kept alive by skilled hands. Parts are fashioned in-house, and built to last for decades.

Strength and resilience

The socks themselves are made from hardy merino yarn, twisted with nylon for strength and shape.

Sock tops often feature hand-knitted designs. These are linked to the main body by hand, using a similar technique as for that of our knitwear.
