Got one pair of Bresciani in cotton/linen from dandystore.fr before it closed, they're pretty nice but alas, I cannot get more...
I started wearing OTC after I tried a pair of Gallo, I was able to get the thin ones. They were like a second skin and didn't fall down the entire day.
I think the main difference between mid-calf and OTC is whether they're going to stay up for not (?). Also, I could never imagine wearing wool OTC socks, even in the UK winter!
