Two weeks is not absurdly long to wait ... unless you are of the age that death is imminent. Everything need not be instant gratification. Some things are worth the wait. Whether or not that thing is Turkish socks I can't say.

I just received two pairs of socks and they are fantastic! I picked up a pair of summer cotton and a pair of wool/silk. Even the wool ones are light and breathable enough for summer wear. My only concern is that the cotton ones had two medium sized holes on the top of the right foot which I'll have to darn

I'm sure if you contact viccel he'd send replacements if there have holes in them, great costumer support. I received another half dozen otc summer weight, these seem longer than the otc winter weight I ordered awhile back, which works out to be perfect length for me. Great thin socks for a couple pairs of shoes that fit me really snug. On a separate note, the USPS delivery lady was perplexed when I told her the package was just socks(coming all the way from turkey), and that they were cheaper than buying locally.

Just a quick addition... I own three dozen pairs of Viccel from the original set of colors and just remembered to place my order for the new ones. They are absolutely wonderful light dress socks; if you like the particular shade of one color, then they are perfect. They fit perfectly, they never drop, they did not run in the washing machine or fade (I make sure to air dry them though) and they simply feel luxurious. I have collected samples of everything from Pantherella, Marcolinani, Gallo and Falke to alpaca socks and they beat everything I have short of Falke cashmere socks (all my Falke cashmere and Viccel socks are intact after multiple wearings and washings and neither is as delicate as it might look). The only caveat, if any, is that some colors may differ from expectations. For example, I can see why people think there is a greenish tint to the darker grey socks and the brown is not as rich and warm as some might expect. I think this is in part because of the natural yellow in the cotton that Kemal points to and because cotton socks just do not have the same rich, uneven color of your go-to charcoal or brown socks. Does it make a difference to me? I wear the Viccel grey and charcoal socks at the same times I would wear wool charcoal socks and they look fine. They do not look green in any way on your feet, as opposed to when you are holding them up in bright light, beside a pair of wool charcoal socks, and looking at them very closely. The other less staple colors are simply vibrant, with purple being my personal favorite and with "undyed" being absolutely perfect with cream linen pants this summer (I am placing orders for white for white linen pants). If anything, a couple of choices end up too vibrant for me to wear too often, so I welcome having lighter variants such as lilac and light pink. Finally, on top of the excellent product, you still get an excellent price and excellent service. Buying from Kemal and feeling some of his enthusiasm for his product is as good as buying socks from Kabbaz and chatting with this equally respected vendor. The two significant problems with Viccel are US customs and the long wait for patterned socks, but such is life.

By the way, can someone tell us how the wool/silk socks compare to the summer weight cotton socks? I will probably do a test buy, but would like to get a detailed opinion from someone who has both.

kemal - where are the loafer socks?
post #190 of 854
Yes, I second the numerous thoughts on patterns. If we could have viccel come up with argyles, stripes, dots and the like, that would be excellent! I also think it would be great, if we could have slightly thicker socks. I don't find much of a difference between the winter and summer weights.

thanks for your comments , will make them short. Actually I had not tried this type of socks before but even this height was good in hot day (almost 40 C)
post #195 of 854
not just making them short (below the ankle), but also not supposed to go higher than where the tongue of shoe is on the shoe
