OUR STORY From banking to socks. In 2014 two friends left their banking jobs to set up Jimmy Lion. Starting up in New York their goal was clear: Create original, and premium quality socks at a reasonable price.
QUALITY Long-lasting Quality is our number one priority. We manufacture our socks in Europe, using the best factories. Jimmy Lion socks are made of high quality combed cotton to make your feet feel like they are in heaven.
DESIGN Unique and original. We are obsessed with designing unique, original and authentic patterns. Our creative team is always on the look out for new inspiration, traveling around the world, breathing in new colors, landscapes, art and different cultures.
SOCIAL PROJECTS Making a difference. Our socks also have a plus side, as you will be contributing to various of our social projects. We are very proud to be able to make a difference by supporting the Aura Foundation, with their social and work integration programs, or helping the Seabin project clean the Oceans.
How should I wash my socks? We recommend washing your socks with cold water and no bleach to preserve colors and maintain size and shape. They will last longer if you keep them out of the dryer. Colors will stay truer if you wash your socks inside-out. Avoid bleaching or ironing your socks. Avoid tumble drying. To remove the label from your new socks do not rip it off as this will damage your socks. Please remove it by gently pulling out the thread on the label using your fingers.
What is hand-linked toe? Using the hand-linked process, the stitches on both sides of our socks' toe seam are linked with a single thread creating a really flat and comfortable finish.
What materials do you use to make your socks? Our socks are manufactured using premium quality combed cotton. By combing the cotton, the short and breakable cotton fibers are removed leaving only the finest and strongest yarns. We also use a small percentage of elastane and polyamide to provide elasticity and resistance.
