(Cuffthis) I would appreciate it if you would bring up my and several others concerns about the limited wearability of these socks to your Pantherella representative.
I have already begun to work on that. I honestly believe that something here is ... strange. I have received a number of e-mails about this thread from long-time Pantherella wearers whose reaction is one of total confusion. My reaction, as I stated above, is the same. I have worn Pantherella for a quarter century. I have sold it for almost as long ... and that is 10's of thousands of pairs of socks. Yes, of course, there have been problems. A run. A hole. A loose toe. A weakened top elastic. But it is so, so rare that I am really concerned with the general tenor of this thread. I have always sold only first-quality current stock. I don't even know if anything else (i.e. seconds) are sold by Panth. I know that they do private label work (i.e. Harrod's) and do not know what happens to overruns of those. This may take me some time, but I shall learn the answers. I may take the liberty of asking you and the others whose experiences have been poor a few questions after I know what to ask. I know that may sound stupid, but I have asked Panth to tell me some of the things (hardness of water, type of wash, dryer methods, etc.) which would be most harmful and am awaiting a reply. If anyone has the tags from any of the Pantherella's discussed above, they would be extremely helpful to me in unravelling this mystery.
