    I know right, I've never had to pull up my socks since, I bought a whole bunch of them including a pair of red silk ones don't remember if those were Mazarin or gamarelli's but I much prefer the wool socks as opposed to the cotton ones. Very happy with my purchase, the service at mes chaussettes rouge is fantastic.

    Which socks are those? Are they the "Colorful Bresciani Cotton Socks" in "Lilac with Red?"

    How is the weight? I like Viccel's 'winter weight' - I don't want socks that feel like panty hose.

    Florida, unfortunately
    I have no experience with Mes Chaussettes Rouge, but I just looked them up online and they have a great selection. I got mine at Gammarelli's in Rome. I took some pictures of the shop, maybe I should post a thread.

    These are the socks from A Suitable Wardrobe http://store.asuitablewardrobe.net/colorfulbrescianispringsocks.aspx

    Yes, the color is Liliac with Red

    They are lightweight and very fine knit cotton. These are the socks to get to wear in warm spring and summer weather. These would be especially nice for anyone in a hot humid climate.

    I have never worn panty hose so I can't help you with a comparison.
