It was 1912 when, in Milan, the Sozzi brothers began to produce Filo di Scotland silk and cotton socks. With careful and passionate manual processing, they satisfy the desires of refined gentlemen and ladies, associating their signature with a guarantee of quality and refined elegance.
After the dark years of the two world wars, the company chose to specialize in the production of men’s socks. To make them, the best natural materials are selected, carefully worked to create excellent accessories that soon become the pride of the brand.
The Hosiery crosses the following decades reaching an extraordinary maturation that allows the company to thrive through a quality that is immediately recognizable and appreciated by increasingly loyal customers.
Sozzi Milano’s mission is as simple as it is ambitious: to transform an apparently banal accessory like the male sock into an authentic declaration of style, an element capable of reflecting the character of the refined man who wears it.
The Calzificio lives the transition to the new millennium with the corporate helm in the hands of Franco Sozzi, son and grandson of the founders, determined to preserve and increase the excellence that embodies the philosophy and identity of a brand that has become historic.
In 2018 the Hosiery was acquired by the Ciocca group, which understood the invaluable value of a centuries-old experience and inherited the commitment in the search for fine yarns and increasingly refined processes. More than a century after the creation of the first pair of Sozzi socks, the company’s products continue to prove to be small masterpieces of craftsmanship and talent: the quality of the materials meets scrupulous management of all production phases, and traditional processes. they combine with the most innovative machinery for absolutely extraordinary results.
From the weaving of the fibers to the making of the socks, all the production steps are rigorously and authentically Made in Italy.
The Hosiery manufactures precious four-thread silk organzines, designed to avoid elegant transparencies; it gives life to refined inlay, baguette or embroidered lance motifs, applies special borders and enriches its creations with embroideries and monograms made entirely by hand in homage to the unforgettable workings of the past.
All the materials used in the packaging of the socks are selected with the utmost care: soft cashmere, impalpable silk, pure wool, authentic Irish linen and varieties of fine cottons such as Fil d’Ecosse and “Sea Island”.
Thanks to the excellent quality of the raw materials, a passionate and constant stylistic research and a service deeply oriented to customer satisfaction, today Sozzi Milano is pleased to share its work with some of the biggest brands in the world of fashion through productions licensed or under private label arrangements.
The company boasts collaborations with the likes of Valentino, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Paul Smith, Sunspel, Julipet and Conbipel.
Every day the diligent industriousness of a 24-hour machine room allows the Hosiery to produce the most varied types of sock: from the most classic, made of wool, Scotland yarn or combed cottons, to the “fashion” ones, which weave different yarn quality in fineness 240, 200, 168, 156 and 144 needles. From the doors of the company there are very different socks ready to enter the daily life of the most refined men and to accompany them on the most special days. Elegant, inlaid or sporty socks surprise the market with timeless quality and special attention to contemporary taste, satisfied with the coexistence of classic colors and trendy colors, traditional patterns and modern patterns.
