WEBURY Jura socks, £19.70, www.webury.com

How does the tweed connoisseur solve the problem between where plus-fours end and brogues begin? One of Webury’s hard-wearing, merino/acrylic blend socks should fit the bill. If your tastes tend to the conservative, opt for the Jura twin-pack, though for true lower-leg splendour splash out on the mustard and red Brockington (£32); the more elaborate designs come with matching garters. Women are just as well catered for — try the sage Honeycomb (£32).
