Nick Munro RNLI The Signs of the Sea Flag Socks, One Size, Black

Product information

This pair of socks uses the International Code of Signals, which is an elegant system of flags to represent letters. It says ‘starboard' and 'port' in an ode to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution charity.

Nick Munro designed each of these products in tribute to his untouchable respect for the institution. He was fascinated by the engineering of the boats, which led him to start sailing himself and understand the risk involved.

Nick Munro originally studied engineering and design at Imperial College and the Royal College of Art in London. His brand has become synonymous with original, modern British design and it features a distinctive combination of craftsmanship, integrity and wit. His designs have appeared in many of the world's finest restaurants and hotels. He is delighted to design for RNLI and believes they deserve complete appreciation.

As part of the collection Nick Munro will donate a minimum of £15,000 from the sale of Attention All Shipping and The Signs of the Sea products to support the RNLI

The RNLI is a the charity that saves the lives at sea. They rescue an average of 22 people everyday - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It costs over £389,000 a day to run this essential service which continues to rely on voluntary contributions and legacies for its income.

Q & As

Nick Munro RNLI The Signs of the Sea Flag Socks, One Size, Black 4.5 5 2 2
Fun nautically-themed Fathers Day gift Good quality socks with a fun nautical theme. The perfect Fathers Day gift for my narrowboat owning dad. And the fact that a portion of the price goes to a good cause (RNLI) is just the icing on the cake. 10 June 2014
Very comfortable and good quality but... These socks are good quality and very comfortable. However, at the time of writing this (and the time of purchase) they were advertised as 100% cotton. They are not - they are 78% cotton, 18% nylon and 4% lycra. I am not returning mine however, as I like them anyway and part of the money goes to the RNLI. But thought I'd mention they are "cotton rich" rather than 100% cotton as advertised. Perhaps the information will be amended. 01 October 2013
