Best Sock Drawer Dividers and Organisers

Sock drawer filling up with MJs?!  Our VIPs receive brand new MJs every month; an absolute treat for your feet, and all for just £9.99 / month (more info here).   After a few months the colour will be bursting out of your sock drawers from these fine, hand-linked British socks.  How is it best to store them?   One tip is to use MJ’s gift boxes – they’re great in chunky drawers for keeping things in order.  But they do arrive full of socks… so, we’ve reviewed our favourite organisers and dividers.  No more rummaging for your favourite pair of Henley MJs behind some old boxers!

MJ's Gift Boxes

 

5. ‘Onever’ foldable storage; great value set of 2 that also folds flat when not it use.

4. Classic Ikea drawer organisers: a useful set with a range of sizes.  Whether you like to store your MJs wrapped, flat, or stacked, there’s a space for them in here.

 

3. Acrylic ‘interdesign’ system. Most dividers come above the height of the socks; these are different. At only 5.5cm height, lines of rolled MJs will fill the space and cover the clear acrylic dividers to give a great look, uninterrupted by visible dividers!

2. 18 slot honeycomb divider, with a bespoke fit to your drawers. An interesting shape that is super efficient; no bulky dividers means more room for your socks.

1. In the number one spot is the Kenather Drawer Divider: 8 cells, holding 16 pairs of MJs. The fabric is moth-proof, mould-proof and moisture-proof. The integral lid stays shut with velcro to keep the dust out. Treat your MJs to a little bit of sock-drawer luxury!

Best Men’s Weekend Bags

At the end of a long week, there’s nothing quite like a weekend away from it all to unwind. Whether you’re heading for a B&B in the country, a slick city break, or a chic beach, arriving with your toothbrush and boxers in a few tatty carrier bags isn’t the start to the weekend you’re after!

So, we have done the research for you and present the FIVE of the BEST WEEKEND BAGS on the market today:

5. A lively one to kick off; this Liberty print is for the brave, but if you can pull it off it’s a nice change from the usual fabrics

4. Real leather and ‘carry on’ size for a plane, it’s a classic style and this is a good bag for the price:

3, This bad boy is ideal if you’re an Italian Duke or just like Victorian luggage. If you’re going on holiday with Sophia Loren, and you’ve got a manservant, it doesn’t make sense to carry your Marko John’s in anything else:

2, This all leather beauty by Moore and Giles isn’t cheap but should last for years and age beautifully if treated right:

1,  And the winner is… At number one is this stylish canvas number, Made In Britain (in Cumbria actually), and nicely finished with lots of classy details (brass feet, leather base panels) it’s a cracker and just right for a weekend away:

So, there we have it, have a great weekend wherever you’re going and don’t forget your socks! www.Marko-Johns.com
