Your posts make us really happy. Thank you. I wanted share a picture which is taken by a phone without any image processed corrections. Just a close up picture of 100% American Pima Mercerized Cotton Socks, not nylon or synthetic blends.

This is a bit of an issue for me as well. I would remove 1" from the OTC socks.

I would take heed from the image provided above. the purpose of loafer socks is to cover your feet, but make it look like you are not wearing socks when you have shoes on - therein, the socks would go below the ankle.

I would copy this, shown above.

zero height. the falke ones shown above are probably best example. here is a second example, less elegant though:

I just received an order from Viccel that I placed in early March. Shipped to Northern Virginia. The main point of this post was to provide expectations for shipping time, otherwise largely absent from this thread. Shipping time was 21 days, 14 of which were spent clearing US Customs. ( at Customs.) Kemal was very quick to respond when I asked for a status update, and even sent me a nice follow-up asking if I'd received the order once he saw it had finally left customs. Seems excellent service for a modest order of only 4 pairs of socks. As for the actual product, I'll find out soon, but there have been plenty of informative reviews thereof already. I can at least attest to the colours being vivid and excellent. Shipping timeline digest:
  • March 12, 7:12 pm - Foreign Acceptance
  • March 14, 10:58 am - Foreign International Dispatch - Istanbul
  • March 19, 6:56 pm - Inbound International Arrival - ISC New York
  • April 01, 4:54 am - Arrival at local post office
  • April 02, 2:30 pm - Delivered

I haven't tried these yet, but wish they would offer some patterned options.

So the consensus is that the socks hold up well if washed carefully? Are we talking about the summer or winter weights? It sounds like even the winter ones can be worn in the summer.

Also, did everybody just order their regular US shoe size? I didn't see a definite answer in the thread.

Just your US shoe size should be fine. Seems from my limited sampling that they're sized in 1.5 euro-size increments. I ordered some in both 9.5 US and 10 US to compare sizes, and they're labeled as 42-43.5 EU/8.5-9.5 US and 44-45.5 EU/10-11.5 US respectively. The fabric does have a bit of stretch, so both fit fine for me as a US size 9.5EE. My next batch will probably be the smaller size for what it's worth though.

how are the loafer socks coming along?
post #164 of 851
I have gotten nine pairs from Viccel some time ago. Shipping/customs does take some time, not really a problem if you expect it to.
Of the pairs I bought, I ordered all winter weight. The colours are beautiful and they hold up very well with washing. I got some OTC length, which I am starting to appreciate more and more.
My feet are really less damp compared to other (cheap) socks which contain synthetic fibres. Cotton does breathe better. They are warm enough for winter, but I feel they can also be used in warmer periods, just because they breathe so well. In some well-worn shoes, the absence of moisture makes the feet and socks move a little more inside (less friction).
I do want to try the summer weights and other colours or materials, so I expect I will be putting in another order soon.

I had not expected wearing better socks would matter much, but in fact it does. If you own some nice shoes, having nice socks that look good and feel good really adds to a pleasant feeling.

Quality of the product is good, especially for the price. Top edge finish might be a bit smoother. In one sock I found a very small hole on the side, but not really a problem.

Edit: just ordered 10 more pairs in summer quality. I like the new colours. Now for some argyle or other patterns.

Others said to wash special, hang dry etc.. i just throw em in with the regular wash and through about 4-5 cycles n issues.

I am a 12- ordered size 12- and fit perfect. All socks were summer-mid calf and 2 OTC.
7 more on order..
