    Wondering if people here would be interested in Gammarelli socks. For those that don't know what they are, this is a great article: http://www.gentlemansgazette.com/mes-chausettes-rouge-mazarin-gammarelli-socks/

    They are currently (only) available via: http://www.meschaussettesrouges.com. Cost? $55 a pair (shipped with tracking to the USA) $45 a pair (shipped with tracking to the UK)

    The socks are available in 3 colours, red, black, purple and in either 100% cotton or 100% merino wool. They come sized (UK) from size 4 to 12.5, that is equal to US 5 - 13.5. Europe 37 - 47.

    If there is enough interest I could offer them for no more than $40 shipped worldwide, very possibly even less. (Considering shipping charges, customs etc...)

    Any questions, post here or PM.

    (It is possible to get Mazarin socks as well if there is interest...)

    To be fair, they're less than 25 euros shipped to the US w/o tracking, and the shipping charge stays constant over several pairs.

    I have both Gammarelli and Mazarin socks, and they feel cheap, flimsy and sheer compared to Bresciani, Pantherella etc. I would much rather be interested in someone offering high quality Italian OTC hose for about $20-$25 before U.S. shipping

    If people are happy having their items shipped without tracking that reduces the cost by about $10. It would still be cheaper than http://www.meschaussettesrouges.com

    About the quality, I haven't handled them as of yet so I can't comment. You didn't mentioned their durability.. how does that compare with the other makers you mentioned?
