Founded in 1892 by Rhys Jones of Carmarthenshire, Wales, Corgi remains family owned and operated five generations later. Run today by Jones's great-great-grandchildren, this small company is famous for its hand-finished (and smart-looking) socks—and it has a Royal Warrant from HRH the Prince of Wales to prove it. Corgi Hosiery got its start making thigh-high woolen socks for local miners in England and later popularized men's argyle socks. Nearly a century later, its patrons include many of the world's finest luxury boutiques, the royal family, the entire British military and now, lucky for us, J.Crew. Corgi's spring-weight socks are made from a lightweight cotton-and-nylon weave that's both warm and ultra-breathable. Trust us: Your feet will thank you. Cotton/nylon. Machine wash. Made in Wales.
