    Just received my 9 paris of winter weight cotton sock, plus one pair of freebie OTC that Kemal has kindly sent with the shipment. To me the winter weight socks are just right as I am not that much into see through socks.

    Kemal is a great guy, great customer service and fast repsonse. Only hope is that they will come up with patterned cotton socks a la Paul Smith/Dore Dore/De Pio et al.

    Well, just ordered another 8 pairs from him!

    kemal - I think people wanted thicker socks - not thinner!
    Here is the heaviest one of Viccel cotton socks, they are 33% than current winter weight cotton socks. They are produced with 30/3 Ne (3 ply yarn) . Sorry to say that they are mid-calf and for regular size ( EU:42-43.5 US: 9½-10 UK 9-9½ ).

    Kemal, that ^^^ is a nice colour that I expect will work OK with the black rib. Unfortunately your available size is a tad small for me.

    I expect that you're doing a trial run in your most popular size. In that case, nice as it is, I'm surprised -- but pleased -- you've chosen a purple/lilac shade. I think your recent colours -- the sky blue, light pink, pistachio etc -- are gorgeous. But I wonder what are your most popular colours. Would you, out of interest, let us know what you sell most of? I expect it will be the dreaded dark blue or black. Yuck!

    BTW, I received my merino socks. It's too warm here to wear these for long but I gave them a try today. Very nice feel. A great winter sock. And the dried rose colour is great.

    I just received my order and I love the Merino wool winter weight socks. I ordered them in purple and I'm very happy with the quality!

    I also ordered some cotton socks in winter weight and I'm wearing the gray today. They are fantastic.

    I would recommend ordering from these folks. Socks fit true to size as well (and I'm a size 13USD)

    what would you say is the longest lasting dress sock?

    also which material holds it's form longer and/or doesn't slip off the foot as easy?
    i assume over the calf solves the slipping problem from what i've read?

    Hi, I am from Hong Kong.

    I'd like to clarify: I want 5 100% cotton "winter weight" socks; does that mean 9.59 * 5 = USD 47.95 because shipping is free? Please confirm, as I want to place an order soon.

    Also, are these socks completely opaque? (Otherwise I'd rather get the merino.)

    Kemal,

    Any way Viccel could hook us up with dark plum (non-shiny) OTC socks?

    Kemal,

    Forgive me if this information is posted elsewhere and I've overlooked it, but can you let me know what the lengths of the winter weight OTC and MC socks are from the heel to the top? I'm trying to decide which ones to get and I suspect that OTC might be too tall for me.

    Thanks.
