Special made socks developed with Alfredo Gonzales
In 2011, Alfredo Gonzales came out of anonymity to launch their first sock collection. Their positive and rebellious attitude has led to a unique position in the fashion industry. With their refreshing designs, they make life a bit more beautiful as it offers a statement for ankles around the world. Based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, but their socks are flying out all over the world, so everyone can rock their comfortable beauties in style.
The lifestyle approach of Alfredo Gonzales goes hand in hand with the mindset of Denim Days, so a perfect match to create the ultimate denim socks.
Honors the selvedge production process
The design of the Denim Days socks shows the selvedge lines of authentically produced pairs of jeans. These lines can be seen when you cuff your jeans. The most common selvedge fabrics are usually white with red-colored yarn in the middle. Due to this red yarn, this type of selvedge is called redline selvedge.
Back in the days, all denim fabrics were selvedge as they’re woven on small authentic looms which run by a wooden shuttle. As the shuttle runs back and forth, you will create a self-finished edge on both sides of the fabric, which means they don’t fray.
Nowadays fabrics are mostly woven on modern projectile looms. These looms are around 10 faster compared to shuttle looms. They used these modern looms when denim became more popular as a fashion style next to workwear.
The beauty of selvedge fabrics is that the slower pace of shuttle looms puts less tension on the yarn, which results in more slubs than character to the denim fabric.
The details of the socks
The selvedge Denim Days socks are made of 78% organic cotton, 18% nylon, and 4% lycra. The design of the socks shows the selvedge lines on the outside, while the inner side is clean blue with our logo. At the top, there’s the Alfredo Gonzales button as a reference that it's a genuine pair made by them using 168 needles to knit.
The outcome is a high-quality made sock that is comfortable to wear, also due to its seamless toe. The selvedge Denim Days socks are now available here in two different sizes as 38-41 and 42-45.
