Happy Socks, Hollywood Spots

The Standard loves Happy Socks and they sell like crazy at our hotel shops. Socks seem to be an essential travel item that most guests buy a handful of. Check out our Happy Socks video here.



Happy Socks are all unisex and made from 80% combed cotton, 17% polyamide and 3% elastane. They’re high quality socks, made from combed cotton. Since the cotton is combed before being spun into threads, the short fibers fall out, while the stronger and comfier long fibers stay in. The cotton is then woven in Italian machines of the brand Lonati, famous for their high precision. They’re then finished in Turkey, at a family company that has been in the business for more than 30 years, who also makes socks for both the Belgian and Turkish armies. The factory has been controlled to make sure that the working environment is good and that there is no child labour.
