What's so great about our socks (Part 3)

They may not be the cheapest shooting socks you can buy, but they are certainly not the most expensive, and (a little bragging here) they are definitely the best! The main reasons for holes seem to be either the dreaded moth or barbed wire, neither of which we feel we can take the blame for. I was having a chat with one of my lovely customers the other day, who runs a beagle pack...yes, we make beagling stockings too!
