    This contrast lace thing is becoming an epidemic....don't tell the "what I'm wearing now" thread, they won't like it...[​IMG]


    Those are some special socks. Going to look for them...do they do over-the-calf?

    Nagrani does OTC. Just a sample of what they have, click around for more. https://vknagrani.com/posts/index/2/2

    Also, there is some fanfare about Nagrani on SF if you search for it.

    Here, for e.g.: http://www.styleforum.net/t/286503/evolution-of-nagrani

    In fact, this vid is worth sharing about VK Nagrani. If you don't care for the story or have sound, just skip to the 3:50 mark for a bunch of sock/shoe/pant porn.

    Thanks. I see they have plenty, but as ever, I struggle to find anything new that's both OTC and 100% natural fibres. Pity, the designs are awesome, but not for me...I'll stick with my plain wool and cotton ones from Mazarin, Gammarelli and blacksocks.com (the best, actually), and patterns from Bresciani in 100% cotton.

    Well, they do have 100% cashmere ones for $85 a pop... :bigstar:

    Thanks for the blacksocks link.

    I would trade my EG for Nike and PTO any day of the week. Enjoy

    I'll put them on my wishlist, but it's hot where I live so I'll probably get by with mostly cotton!

    Those "blacksocks.com" OTCs really are great. They don't have much of a selection - black, grey and one "trendy" colour a year (raspberry right now, which I love). They're also a bit heavier than the Mazarin ones. But for the price, they are awesome quality, and they never fall down. At all, in my experience, even after a few washes. For a broader colour selection from Mazarin, go to meschaussettesrouges.com Order a few pairs - when they arrive it feels like your birthday, you'll see why!

    Did I already say that? Ah, whatever, blue cordovan is worth calling "awesome" twice.
