KENTWOOL Debuts Vibrant New 19TH Hole Dress Sock Collection (Review)

KENTWOOL introduces its 19th Hole collection of fashion performance socks. Using its 171-year-old textile heritage as one of the world’s premier wool innovators, KENTWOOL crafted these socks from a proprietary blend of superfine Merino wool and high-tech fibers for a luxuriously soft feel that also keeps feet dry and odor-free all day long. A blend of wool that was originally developed for US Special Operations forces during the first Gulf War. Serious technology is balanced with playful patterns, including stripes, argyles, dots or designs inspired by the KENTWOOL crest.

KENTWOOL yarn can be found in some of the most prestigious global apparel brands including Loro Piana, Smartwool, St. John and Patagonia among scores of others.

KENTWOOL 19TH Hole Collection

To complement the premier performance line of our World’s Best Golf Sock, KENTWOOL is introducing a brand new line of “clubhouse casual” socks that are perfect for play both on and off the links. Sleek, sophisticated, stylish, the 19th Hole Collection makes for the perfectly fashionable transition from course to clubhouse. These socks are a high-performance lifestyle sock, engineered for comfort—featuring a luxurious sheer feel and reinforced cushioning, but can be worn daily for optimal comfort. As with KENTWOOL performance line, the 19th Hole Collection is constructed with Superfine Merino Wool and a proprietary blend of “smart” performance fibers. And of course, they’re made right here in the U.S.A.

The Male Standard Verdict

The biggest difference between the KENTWOOL 19th Hole Collection and other dress socks (aside from their uniquely gorgeous patterns and vibrant colors) is the extra cushion under your feet, yet thinner material by the ankles and calf muscle.  It seems like the dress socks we have are either all thin or all thick, but these offer the perfect blend of thick on the bottom and thin near the top for maximum comfort. If you really want to go the full 19 holes, then KENTWOOL understands the effort required, and have developed the correct sock wear for you. While KENTWOOL will run you a little more than traditional dress socks at $28, we do feel these are a great investment that will last the distance. Because of the unique wool blend, which washes well, these socks will improve your stance and comfort on or off the green.
