Winter weight prob will not be ideal for NYC in the winter.
Fwiw I bought 10 pairs about five weeks ago. Received them maybe two weeks ago. They look nice and seem durable.
Wish the patterns were better.
They don't stretch very much, so putting them on and taking off is somewhat difficult. The bit that they do stretch is over the course of the day, I will feel a looseness developing to the socks in my shoe, which is a really uncomfortable feeling. I usually have to adjust them by taking off my shoe and pulling the sock on tighter abt two hrs into the wear. I guess my preference would be for a little more elasticity in the weave, but I will probably order again in the future regardless.
By the way there isn't a ton of difference between the winter and heavy weight, so don't be concerned about the heavy being too thick.
