    Has anyone tried Sozzi OTC socks? Colors look fantastic and they are wool which is almost perfect for me but I want to know if anyone has tried them

    I have several pairs, all bought in Naples (marked with the shop name, sleeve and box by Sozzi)over time but all in Fil de ecosse, no experience with wool. Quality is on pair with Gallo, life probably a bit better. They make Attolini's socks as well

    Good luck and congrats on becoming an affiliate! Now to teach us rubes how to pronounce your company name... ;)

    Group MTO sounds like a fantastic idea, looking forward to seeing some of those creations. And +1 for more deets on Sozzi OTC...I have been looking for a go-to sock ever since the untimely demise of the Robert Talbott ones

    Congrats!

    I went by the store a couple of months ago and the service and knowledge was top notch.
    Had a great chat and on a side note, the guy in the store (Adam?) had the perfect blue blazer. I envy that alot. Beautiful.

    As for the sock. Lovely. Nuff said.

    The customer service I have experienced has been top notch from Skoaktiebolaget and I wish them all the very best.

    This is one of the pairs I've gotten from them and I'm going to wear them out for the first time tomorrow [​IMG]

    Welcome. I'm Fok, one of the owners of Styleforum. Really happy to have you aboard. Just some awesome offerings. I was looking through the blog for a while (always boots for me.)

    Cheers,

    I have the wool socks in the orange/rust colour. As mentioned before, the quality is perfect and I will get as many pairs as possible on my next visit! Brown and navy :)
    A note on size: they are a bit big! I normaly wear size 9uk, but Size Medium was quite roomy, almost loose! But ok for the season. Will get small next time.

    Thanks! You will never get the name right. Sorry. I can't imagine anyone but a fellow Scandinavian pronounce it correctly, we tried to teach the people at Carmina but they ended up sounding like the Swedish Chef. :D The Sozzi socks are really nice. We also have them in new spring/summer colours in 100% cotton. We'll post them on the website soon.
    Thanks!
    Thanks for the feedback and testimonial!
    Superb shine Gerry! And thanks for your continued support!
    Hi Fok and thanks for your welcome! The people at SF were really helpful and kind to us in every way.
    We look forward to your next visit!

    Wasn't there a sound file somewhere with the correct pronunciation of Skoaktiebolaget?

    I think that you're referring to my post in the Carmina thread: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0ijZ0up4MPE

    Do please note that my speech is somewhat dialectal.
    Leaves, I'll drop by the store the next time I visit Stockholm, but as a "poor" university student I think it'll be quite some time before I have to opportunity to travel. I do look forward to seeing G&G shoes in person.

    Yes that was it, thanks. A word of warning to tourists in Stockholm: Be careful not to confuse "Skoaktiebolaget" with "Systembolaget".

    Edit: (But perhaps you should visit both anyway)
