    Wool socks will be next. Any special thoughts with respect to wool?

    Kirby's products speak for themselves, but it was the service Kirby provided that is unparalleled. I ordered a couple of items these past weeks, and Kirby went out of his way to make sure the products were delivered by my unreasonable time frame. Also, he was very quick (within minutes) to respond to all the questions I had and made sure everything was to my satisfaction. What a great guy! He does Texas proud!

    For me (size ~9 foot) affordable over the calf socks in solid colors (with a few bold/exciting colors) that can be ordered based on foot size (instead of just Medium or Large) and that are actually constructed for a given foot size. In other words, don't let me order a 20cm and send me a Medium.

    I think a thinner wool would be good too in my opinion, most of my shoes are sized perfectly to where thinner socks (like pantharellas) fit them perfectly. Only downside is they lack comfort a bit that way.

    Maybe thinner wool on the top side but a little thicker for foot cushion. I like wool better because they maintain foot temperature better.

    Kirby, do you have an ETA on the backordered sweater hangers from Black Friday?

    I went home and low and behold my trouser hangers (Clamp style) and garment bag were there. The trouser hangers are probably my favorite piece out of all the HP stuff I've purchased thus far, I have the Suit hangers, jacket hangers, and shirt hangers, but these are a work of art. The clamping mechanism actually has a release mechanism that's great. It also saves a ton of horizontal space in my closet which is precious to me so I'm ecstatic! As for the garment bag, I'm pretty sure this is a bullet proof vest for any garment you put in it, ridiculously thick and awesome. Very happy, Thanks Kirby!

    Curious on the clamping hanger - do you hang from the trouser end long ways or do you fold and hang?

    The design and the best way to have the weight of the trouser pull the wrinkles out is to hang by the leg opening at the bottom, clamping right at the crease of both legs.

    Met with Kirby yesterday and picked up my order of shoe care supplies. Very cool guy and I can't wait to see how my shoes look after I've given them the Saphir treatment.

    Nice haul ^ !

    And I agree about Kirby. He's the best.

    I've called him once or twice and sent a few emails asking for guidance. Kirby has always been incredibly responsive and gracious.
