I'm washing on a HE top loader on delicate settings and occasionally spin drying them on delicate settings (low heat).

 

 

Never had any issues myself.  In fact the only signs of wear on mine after many hot washes and dryer sessions is fading around the heel a bit after 2 years, but that's unavoidable and unnoticeable anyway.

Finally got my order, took 19 days. Colors are much more vibrant than they appear on the website, but are beautiful nonetheless

I am wearing the "Winter Weight" dress socks right now.  First wear.  They do not have much stretch and cant reach over my calf and thus end up falling down.  Does anyone have these issues?  Is there more stretch in the thinner options?  Do they stretch out over time?

They're not going to stretch. If you got the over-the-calf socks and they don't reach over your calf, then you must be 7 feet tall.

My OTCs almost reach my knee. I'm 6'

Mine come up just below my knee.

 

Are you sure you didn't purchase mid-calf winter weight socks?

Maybe he means they're too tight to go up very high on his Arnold calves.



I found with the mid-calf socks the lack of stretch makes them hard to get on over my heel. It's a shame because the fabric and colors are so nice, but they just don't work for me.

How do you guys who get mid calf socks have your socks stay up? Mine only stay up if they're OTC
post #774 of 776
I've never had a problem with Mid Calfs summer weight stay up a whole working day and I've gone through about 2 dozen pairs.
My problem is getting holes in them at the bottom of the sole.

I still like the quality and colour selection that I keep buying from Kemal

Got my first order, 81 days, these are excellent socks.

Been hunting for some new OTCs and based on all the word of mouth, gave these a try. First order of 10 pairs in the heavy winter weight came out to $99. Can't beat that. Will post pics whenever they get in.

 

Thanks Kemal.
