It does. I bought 5, and it said 'buy 4 more and you get one free'

You do. I placed an order this morning and received the 10th pair for free.

I just received my third order.  Took only about three weeks this time.  It included a couple of pair of their two-toned, one of which looks like this in real life:

Order arrived Friday, was about two weeks in packing and shipping--pretty good.

 

Socks are a little snug (I was between sizes and went small) but the heavy winter weight is just about right...will toss up some pics when I get time this week.

Ok, I am contemplating an order here, several questions:
- I was going to order all weights, but I live in Switzerland, should I even bother with the thin and summer weights?
- Why is there no navy for Super heavy cotton socks and the merino ones? Also, would love super heavy cotton OTC socks. (not really a question)
- Is there a Styleforum discount code?
- What's the rough shipping time to Europe?
- Do they offer no show/invisible socks?


Thanks in advance

If you go back in the thread you'll find a styleforum discount code, or email them for it.  My advice for good wear is to get the heaviest socks.  Shipping time depends on their stock levels etc. and could be three weeks.

Thanks, I clicked on the link they have in their signature which automatically applies the 20% discount code.

I ordered every type of socks today and see which suits me best.

I am still a bit annoyed that they dont have navy in merino and heavy cotton.

Just getting around to posting on these after a week of wear. Got a slew of the heavy winter weight OTCs in solids. Liking them so far and the colors hold up great after well...two washings. The claret and lilac look fantastic. No slippage, no quality complaints, and they are wearing well in Tampa weather so far. I guess you could get better socks for $20-30 a pair--maybe--but if it ain't broke there's nothing to fix there. If Viccel ever releases more patterned styles that will be the ball game for me. 

 

One point that I wish I had known: the Navy and Green are so dark that from any sort of distance and/or in anything less than good light they look almost black. If you want a blue sock that looks blue, you need Egyptian Blue or Turquouise. 

 

Sorry for the lack of shoe shots. 

 

L to R: Claret, Scarlet, Lilac, Purple, Egyptian Blue, Turquoise, Hunter Green, Navy.

I need to order some socks for summer, are you guys ordering the heavy winter weight or winter weight cotton over the calf socks? Or super heavy?
post #791 of 820

For the hottest days I wear linen socks, but I just put in an order for winter weight cotton--perfect year around weight IMO. Summer weight are a touch too thin for me, can't imagine what the fine are like.

Where on earth do you get them?  They're like hens teeth, and I'm not keen on forking out $30 a pair to get them from Kabbaz the ould fraud.

Kent Wang is about the only place I've found that sells OTC linen socks.

I don't check my mailbox too frequently. Was pleasantly surprised to find Viccel's package in there. 

 

17 days from the date of order to my pick up. Minus a few days (possibly) to account for my lack of checking.  Not bad.
