Regarding size, your advanced question based on bad experience requires research impossible at this moment with my tiny mobile phone which enables me to reply I only remember either two sizes named Medium and L or one for all. I'm asking for differentiation of various Scott-Nichol models and if within Europe sales occur. The thread initiator uses the adjective not merely to describe cotton, but the aesthetic colour. Scott-Nichol cotton socks are on sale in US - see eBay, but shipping to Europe too expensive. No poster evaluated durability of various models and who wants to wear a too short Scott-Nichol cotton sock?
