Designed with stamps and stickers which abound on parcels at Christmas time, the First Class socks are a fun tribute to the Post Office.
What do you think of when you think of Christmas? Beautifully wrapped presents under the tree, holly and ivy, a glass of mulled wine and … the post office queue. Getting to the post office in time to send out all your gifts and cards is usually a last minute, stressful affair, occasionally leading to lost parcels and frayed tempers. Yet, where would we be without the post?
So this Christmas, we have teamed up with the hugely talented British graphic artist Michael Arnold to celebrate our charmingly bad British postal service. With his design, he honors the unsung hero that is the British post man with his “First Class” socks.Designed with stamps and stickers which abound on parcels at Christmas time, and set against a bright yellow backdrop, the First Class socks are a fun tribute to the Post Office.

The Inspiration behind "First Class"
