Guess I need to be a better shopper next time haha, will have to keep an eye on J Crew sales in the future.

I like St Bernards Sports because they seem to stock different sizes. Medium works best for me

St Bernards is the only place I have seen sizes. Everywhere else seems to stock 1 size so maybe that is the medium which I like? I bought a small for my wife and they fit her pretty well

Heard from Leffot today the natty CXL Indys are in, should be getting mine tomorrow. If I remember correctly, the reverse chamois was on the same preorder- so hopefully not much more waiting for that one!

Haven is great, not too far from me so I just order online and pickup.

I have those emerald socks from them, probably my favourite pair. I'll wait till they run a 20% sale and snag some of the new stock!

What's the deal with CHUP socks anyway? They seem trendy and well marketed more than anything. I handled several pairs over the holidays in J. Crew, and the quality doesn't quite seem there for the MSRP. Does J. Crew get the same quality CHUP goods as other stores? $36 for socks that are approximately 30% acrylic seems steep to me; I did not even pull the trigger at the final sale price. 

 

The Smartwool ones are probably a better deal. But I prefer natural fibers when possible. I am genuinely interested to hear about the experiences of others with these socks. Thanks.

Speaking of Leffot being awesome...the Natty CXL Indy's are in. Pics later this evening!

I've been wondering the same thing. What's the hype about Chup socks?

Cancelled my order while I do some more research. Says size 7-11 but I am now a little worried spending $200 on socks from Haven when they don't offer returns and them possibly not fitting right. I might be better off just trying out one pair first haha

I think waiting for a sale might be best since I have not tried the fit yet.

I got caught up in the CHUP hype and not am confused lol, seems my sock wardrobe upgrade will have to wait.

I believe all my pairs of chups are 90% cotton 7% nylon 3% polyeurethane. They are made in small quantities in Japan. Their longtime limited availability was a selling point for some as are their unique designs and colours. I don't work in a super conservative place so I often like to spice things up with colourful accessories like duchamp ties/chup socks.

I'll send you a note when they have a 20% and I can proxy them for you for cheaper than $20.00 shipping they charge! That being said I'm a size 12 and the socks definitely fit me fine.

That would be amazing, thanks!

 

I'm a size 8 and I hate socks being too big on me and the heel comes up in the back, I figured they would be fine since I saw Ryden had some but now he confused me with the size thing.

Pantherella, Corgi, Marcoliani, Bresciani - there is certainly value there, especially when discounted.

 

I am genuinely skeptical of newfangled things. But then again, I am somewhat conservative, and I don't buy every single shiny new shell cordovan makeup released by Leffot, Leathersoul, et al either.
