does anyone here have a solution to prevent OTC socks from catching on slimmer leg pants? esp wool?

I do whatever it takes to avoid showing bare leg. Normally I use midcalf with shirt stays to make sure they stay up and shirt stays tucked.

OTC always catch on my pant legs. I wear fairly tapered pants, say cuff width 7.75-8.0 inch. OTC socks are virtually unwearable for me.

Yes, don't wear OTC socks.

I've never tired OTC, but I have a decent mid-calf socks collection.

Oi, you almost made me pull a butler there. Sorry, no shot of my nekked hairy legs

But no, with my calves mid-calves are not an option. Socks simply won't stay up.

I like the mid-calf much better. It would also be nice for one of our SF vendors to also sell socks that fit those of us with smaller feet. Being a size 6 it is almost imp[ossible to find decent socks that fit right.

Have you tried Viccel? They have mid-calf socks in a wide variety of sizes. I bought some and enjoy them (wearing them now actually)--though I do wish I had gone OTC like the rest of my socks...

I did order a few pairs, but found the quality to be lacking. My first pair the upper elastic went limp after one wearing. They are alos too thin for everyday. I have some happy socks that are OK, just wish there could be more options.
