Gladrags Wizardwear is a clothing store that was founded in 1750[1] and run by Gladrags Wizardwear Group Ltd., with branches in London, Paris and Hogsmeade.[2] It is full of quirky merchandise and appears to specialise in strange and unusual socks.[3]


" [Harry, Ron and Hermione] went into Gladrags Wizardwear to buy a present for Dobby, where they had fun selecting the most lurid socks they could find, including a pair patterned with flashing gold and silver stars, and another that screamed loudly when they became too smelly."

Gladrags took out a large billboard-size advertisement at the final of the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, on 15 August.[2]
