Is there any refund/guarantee/replacement now that my thin socks have developed holes after half a dozen wears?

Which weight are these?

UPDATE:

 

Got in touch with Viccel and they responded with an offer, that I have accepted, to replace both pairs of socks with heaver/thicker winter weight

versions.

 

The customer service was really fantastic responding to my emails within 30 minutes and not trying to jerk me around at all.

 

I will definitely be purchasing my socks from these guys in the future.

Realy good service from Viccel. But shame on you.........



On topic: I have an order for OTC socks in Claret Red. I give them an other chance to compete with my Canali and Pantherella's. Mostly because of the nice colors they have.

So far, I'm hand-washing and hang drying my Viccel socks, and based on my experiences so far they will be my new sock wardrobe staple. I purchased a second order of all heavy winter weight, a full week's worth in navy and then a couple different colors to try.

 

I'v experienced no slippage, and all the socks from my first order fit my feet and heel perfectly, despite my unusually high arches. Some pairs require a bit of folding at the top; that's fine, because I'd rather have socks that are too long than too short.

 

Great work Viccel. I'm a convert.

Can anyone comment on thickness of the socks comparing winter weight and summer weight?

post #683 of 776
The name "winter weight" is a bit misleading IMO, they are thinner than any socks I own, but I use them every day in temperatures from -20C to 20C. I would only suggest summer weight if you want the socks to be like women stockings; more of adding a color to the skin.

I'm curious to here from someone who has the "Super Fine" socks.

Based on the weights of the other types, I can only imagine something finer than tissue paper.

I see a lot of cheapskates here taking advantage of Kemal's generosity. Bought the bi-coloured heavy socks, only the red ones bled (like the winter weight ones I had before), so may be there is some problems with the red dye used.

Just got the heavy winterweight, and compared to winterweight these are much better. Exactly the extra thickness that was neeeded (30 % extra). Ty Viccel. They look awesome.

The quality of the summer weight seems to be on par with Viccel's other offerings, and the color of my forest green pair is great, but it takes on a sheer appearance when worn.

I plan to treat the winter weight Viccel as my default 4-season dress sock; I have thicker military surplus socks for casual wear, or under Clarks desert boots.

Can anyone explain the reasoning behind washing these—or any socks—inside out?

My assumption is that it assists with either cleaning the part of the sock that contacts your skin, or it helps preserve the dye (like turning a pair of raw denim inside out before a soak).

Isn't the dye on both sides of the fabric?

 

I would say the reason to wash inside out is becasue you wear them outside in, the face of the cloth is protected during the wash cycle so when you wear

them the pristine fabric is on display.

I ask because turning the socks inside-out, over and over, seems fairly traumatic. I'd prefer to not strain the fabric over and over if it's not necessary to do so.

 

Potential strain and damage wouldn't be compounded by the washer or dryer as I'm hand washing my Viccel socks with white Zote soap (if you like the smell of citronella, it's wonderful stuff) and hang drying using Mawa clip hangers.
