post #811 of 854
Why did you size down? My shoe size ranges from 11-11,5 UK which is a size US 12 or 46-46,5 EUR and the socks fit me perfectly froom heel to toe in a size US12. And I do have veeery long legs at 6'7"... wink.gif

do you realize that ordering a 12 will give you a longer sock that might actually be OTC for your foot size?

Is everyone else having the same issues I have with the MC socks falling down?

I like the OTCs except thicker (flannel) trousers get stuck.

I sized down mainly to avoid the heel being too long on my foot.  It is easier to stretch the foot of a sock so the heel placement is correct versus having it too big and having the heel of the sock fall on my achilles.

 

I will give a size 12 a shot.

Sorry, if you size down and order a smaller size, and then say the socks aren't high enough (probably due to the smaller size) and that the socks are terrible because they're too short......

Doesn't make sense....

Anyone know when the next viccel sale is?

All OTC socks I have ordered end up less than an inch from the base of my knee, if "the OTC socks do not come close to being over the calf" then you either have a lower leg twice the length of a normal human being or your are talking shit.

 

My Mid-Calf socks do keep falling down, however that is expected from a shorter sock unless you size down to get the extra tightness that will prevent the sock from falling.

calf length varies with height. sock length also varies with sock size. 

a tall person wearing a small sock size could easily have problems with the sock length.

Dear Kemal

I am a long returning customer, always very satisfied with your cotton socks.

Recently however, I bought three pairs of heavy wool socks (details below). I washed them once at 30° (not all at the same time), dried them outside, but they all shrunk to a point where I cannot even force my foot inside them.

What can you do about it?

Thanks

I've not had any issues with shrinkage. I wash in cold and hang them dry.

I've had the opposite experience with some of the super fine, they seem to have stretched out and not stay up as well after 3 or 4 washes.

I've got some of the winter weight, going on a year now, and they are just as great now as the first day.

Thank you! From what I understand, the winter weight is still fairly thin, similar to Pantherella or Falke?

I've not tried Pantherella or Falke, but I have Palatino super fine 920 L which feel the same as the Viccel summer weight.

I have several pair of the Heavy Winter Weights and they seem like regular old cotton socks for the weight, like an old pair of boot socks I have from Kmart.

I don't have a lot of experience with different socks but the Heavy Winter Weights are by far the heaviest I've seen.

If they are to thin, you can always were them in the summer ;)

Below is a cross post from the "Quintessential Crockett & Jones" thread.

 

The socks (mid-calf in winter weight for my UK 10 size feet) pictured below are from my recent maiden purchase from Viccel.  My service experience with Viccel (thanks Ahmet) was top notch and the socks fit nicely.  Hopefully, they will wear well over time.

Having been introduced to the C&J brand by this community (thanks SF), I've been slowly "cobbling" together a small collection of their footwear, which is pictured below.  

 

My humble C&J collection began with several variations of chukka/desert boots -- my favourite versatile form of footwear -- and is now being extended to their Oxford shoes too.  

 

Several new pairs of Viccel socks -- another brand introduced by this community (again, thanks SF) -- are also pictured alongside my growing C&J footwear collection.

 

I intend to wear some of the C&J footwear below on their maiden voyages on the WAYWRN thread eventually, once I finished assembling some thread worthy clothing ensembles.   Alas, good things take time.
