1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I wore them regularly as a child, but when growing up I started to hate them and didn't wear them anymore...
    Only a few years back I started adding them again into my sock wardrobe..
    Now I wear both

    OTC is the italian standard. I'm pretty sure I've never seen MC socks here.

    I wish that were the case here. Canadian standard seems to be mid-calf.

    I am on the verge to make an order at Sozzi, too. How have they been after a year?

    They hold up fantastically well. I haven't had any problems with holes or wearing thin (make sure to keep your toe nails trimmed!) They are like a second skin and very comfortable. I have found that the OTC cotton and wool stay up all day without needing to be adjusted. The only problem for some could be that the cotton is quite thin. Not thin enough for your shoes to feel lose though...

    If you're interested contact me and I might be able to get you a good deal on some.

    Just walked two penny size holes into the heel of one of the wool/nylon mix sozzi calze sock. On my feet all day, but that hasn't happened before that quick
