    I was wondering if anyone who regularly wears silk socks could tell me how they fare compared to wool socks or 70/30 wool/nylon socks in terms of durability.

    And is anyone familiar with Mazarin socks (sold from Mes Chaussettes Rouges)? I'm interested in getting a pair of mazarin silk socks, but the biggest size is 10.5, usually I wear size 12 shoes. Are the sizes flexible enough for me to be able to wear 10.5s?

    The socks I'm looking at are these http://www.meschaussettesrouges.com/en/silk/90-green-silk.html

    Thanks in advance.

    Dear Sir,

    Thank You for your kind question.
    12US is 11.5UK and our biggest silk socks is 11.5US The socks are flexible enoughh and I am sure the socks will fit. Anyway, if there is any problem, you will just have to contact us.

    I remain at your disposal,

    Serendipitous indeed. I'd been looking for a source for black silk socks. :)

    The Cardinal, yes. Not the sock guy.

    As for me, I dont like wool socks because they're prickly and not so cosy. I like socks of silk. They are very soft to skin and can keep warm.
