Looking for light blue dress socks

Well, the title gives it away: I'm looking for light blue dress socks. I used to have a few pairs of Hugo Boss mercerised cotton socks, with very fine vertical ribbing, but I've been unable to find replacements either on- or offline. Any ideas?

Viccel.com. Falke surely has some as well, no idea if you have access to them.

You can probably find them from Pantharella. They make every color in the world.

Stop being so picky about the ribbing and buy Viccel? They really are awesome socks. I just got a new shipment yesterday.

I can understand if he doesn't like the ribs.
Seriously, try Falke, they're pretty good.

I ordered these Pantherellas from Sierra Trading Post. The photos are very confusing, though. You have the light blue (color #11) and plain blue (#12). I ordered #12 but it's much lighter than pictured, basically the same as #11. However, the toe and heel are navy as pictured for #12. If this is what you seek I guess you could order #11 to be safe.

The Falke site is only showing darker blues, the sky blue I'm looking for is suspiciously vacant!

As far as being picky, very much so, it's my middle name! I will not admit defeat just yet!

I will be giving the Viccel and Pantherellas a try though.

Marcoliani from Howard Yount (best place) or O'Connell's (in case HY has run out); I have a pair I quite like.

Ah those Marcoliani's are more like it! Found them in spades at O'connell's. They're supposedly one size fits all, how does that work out for small feet? (I'm european 40-41 size, english size 6.5 - 7 I believe).

They'll be a tad roomy like any one-size sock. The marco's hold up very well, even if you shrink them a bit in the dryer.
