1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Yes yes yes, enough about style/fashion and back to the socks, which are fantastic. I for one think that both basic and more elaborate socks belong in a man's wardrobe.

    Anyway, stock was low, so I've added quite a few new pairs. Get them while you can. They would be a great holiday present for the sartorially inclined.

    if nagrani would start making basic socks like:
    plain white, black, charcoal , or navy solid socks, in the same quality that they bring,
    that would be something.


    They do-- my local men's clothing store in Pittsburgh sells black, tan, and charcoal grey socks from them. They have "VK Nagrani for [store name]" stitched in white across the top, on the inside, and the purple toes. They're my go-to for dress socks, despite the cost.

    Sorry if I asked this before, any of them a bit thicker or are they all thinner dress socks?

    I'd call them medium thickness for dress socks, probably a bit on the thicker side compared to my cotton pantherellas or most of the cheaper dress socks I've picked up at Ross or wherever. They're certainly not boot-sock thick, but they feel sufficiently solid (maybe they're woven tighter or something, I know nothing of sock construction) that they definitely feel thicker than some of my thinner dress socks. I have also found that those with a diamond or check pattern tend to be a touch thicker, because the pattern is actually woven in with extra thread/yarn.

    I certainly would not call them "thin" as cotton dress socks go.

    A whole lot of new socks added. I believe this will be the last restocking before the end of the year.

    Today I rocked a bright orange pair I picked up from chorse a few days ago and they are indeed fantastic socks. Not once did I have to pull them up or fiddle with them getting bunched up in my shoes.

    These are fantastic socks, and Chorse1 is a great seller. Be warned though, if you're tall, over the calf is a bloody lie. Pulled all the way up these go halfway up my calf. Love them though.

    Damn, really? I know I have short legs, but if I really tug 'em I can get them halfway over my kneecaps.

    I'm around 6'2" with a long torso. when I tug them all the way up, they go to roughly 4" below the bend in the back of my knee. But it's a bit of work, I've got big calves from bicycle commuting. Pretty socks though, and it's not like it matters. I don't wear them with knickers (much).

    I've found the Nagrani sizing to be all over the map. Some are true OTC and others not so much. Don't let that dissuade you! Great socks, great price, great seller.

    They're not over the calf for me either, but they go about 2/3rds of the way there, and they hold, so that's all I care about. I actually find it much more comfortable than those which grip near the kneecap. Glad you guys are enjoying the socks.

    Well, "Little Legs" was my nickname in middle school for a reason.

    BTW, possibly the best feature about these socks is that women love them. They just go on and on about them.
