I was taking a look at these (OTC in Merino Wool) and they both come about to the same price, does anyone have any experience with either? I am looking for durability, as well as comfort.

Thank you in advance!

I know that, but is the cost for the rouges due to marketing? or is it justified?
I am leaning towards the marcoliani because of reviews I have read here on SF.

80/20 blend of merino wool tends to have more durability than 100% wool...same applies to cotton.

If you dwell deep into Kabbaz site, you will find an explanation as to durability

but if I were to go the 100% merino route (Marcoliani) Vs. Rouge,
would there be any difference?

Thanks again in advance

You can special order the white socks from MCR.

I was all set to order a couple of dozen pairs from MCR (the Mazarin in Burgundy) until I discovered the STP Pantherella blowout. Would love to hear a review from members who have purchased from them though.

One more thing, I think the pope now using Mancinelli rather than Gammarelli as his personal tailor, although Vactian still buying many stuffs from Gammarelli.

Comfort and durability of socks is not due to the yarn used only. It depends on the machine used for knitting. More needles the machine has, more comfortable and fine are the socks. There are different quality of wool too, depending on the count of the yarn (the count is the way to measure how fine it is the yarn). It is quite a complicate matter, but as already suggested in previous post, have a look to Kabbaz site, there are explanation about that. Anyway, composition alone, can't tell which is better, there are other factors, as the count of the yarn, the needle of the machine, the quality of the raw material...but at the end everything it is personal, so I sugget you just buy one of each and decide which one it is better for you
