Scott-Nichol’s ancestors have been associated with wool production for over six hundred years. This depth of heritage and textile expertise is the foundation of every Scott-Nichol sock. The company was originally founded in the 1930s by John Scott-Nichol and established in Factory Street, Shepshed, on the edge of the Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire, England. In 2006 the brand was acquired by the Hall family who has been involved with the manufacture of socks in Leicestershire since ‘Honest John’ Hall started making hosiery in 1882. Since 2006 all Scott-Nichol socks have been made in our family-owned factory on Hallaton Street in Leicester, England, the home of the iconic Pantherella Fine English Sock brand.
