Pantherella Socks way too large.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I got a bunch of large Pantherella socks from the sale at STP last week. A dozen pairs. They are supposed to be for men with a shoe size of 11-13.

I wear a size 12 shoe, and these things can fit over my shoe. They have just been delivered and i have not washed them yet. Do they shrink in the wash to normal fit, or is the sizing just bullshit?

These are the biggest socks i've ever seen. The over-the-calf model can be pulled halfway up my hamstrings and i'm 6 feet tall.

I'm a 13D/E and they fit me fine. I got 20 pair, 10 in merino wool and 10 in cotton. Both fit me without problems. I've washed some of them a couple of times (gentle) and line dried them. No shrinkage.

I have the same issue with the 4 pair of cotton that I bought (I'm a 12D). I'll let you know the result after they are washed. I think it will work out fine.

If washed at highish temperatures (anything above 40 Celsius) they will shrink.

Even the "R" size ones are huge (for the designated sizes). They didn't shrink nearly enough, so I returned mine.

Thanks. I did, and they're still a hair too big. The cotton blend mid calf ones from Nordstrom fit me perfectly, but these were too large, even after being the dryer.
