These UES socks are made using old-style shuttle looms and old dyeing methods. They are inspired by the sports socks of the '50s and knitted from a 100% premium cotton yarn. The Heather socks are perfect for boots and sneakers. The quality of knitting and construction is top-notch.
UES is a small Japanese label founded by Chuji Matsumoto in 1994. UES comes from the English word "Waste", which means that Matsumoto-San wants you to make full use of each garment for as long as possible before discarding it. It is a small judgement of the concept of disposable wear that is so commonplace today in the world of fashion and from which Matsumoto-San disassociates himself completely.
