    Need a mid-grey sock that is not one single tone of grey. The grey suits I have actually contain a few different colours of thread and a single tone grey sock looks odd. I don't need the slacks and socks to match, but if the socks had the same subtle variation, it would look better.
    This is an example of a sock that uses a few colours of thread: [​IMG]

    Received mine today. Shipping took a month, but the socks are worth it. I have long toes and these are the first socks that don't constrict my toes. I am definitely ordering more.

    On a side note, I wasn't too pleased with the charcoal socks. Order two pair and they were significantly different in color. The first pair was a true charcoal-- essentially a light black. The second pair was a sort of bluish gray color and a shade lighter. Probably should have gone with black. Both pairs are perfectly serviceable, but not uniform. I'll gladly wear them anyway.[​IMG]

    Thanks much appreciated.. i hate having too big of a sock and having it fall.

    btw, do you guys stick yours in the dryer? or all air dry?


    Well, I wear US Sz 10 shoes and my first order of Sz 10 socks were big and kept falling. I'd suggest you try a half size smaller if you haven't already placed your order.

    Thanks for kind comments and sorry for the mistake
    Actually its not common but lighter one must be passed accidentally by quality control.
    Its really good to know that you liked the socks and thinking of ordering again.
    take care
    Kemal

    Kemal, I've ordered a pair of sky blue midcalf winter socks about 6 weeks ago. I really like the color and fit, but the blue pair now has the seam at the top of the toe coming undone. I've worn this pair 6 or 7 times, so it might be a production error.

    Dear all,
    I am planning to order a large batch, but no longer see at
    http://neweshop.viccel.com/
    the 20% SF discount that Kemal Onyurt advertises in his signature. Is that still valid?

    Thanks!,
    TDP

    I ordered several pairs on the 16th of October and didn't get an email that they've shipped and when I email Viccel I don't get an answer, is this normal?

    I bought two pairs of the black wool/silk blend and I have to say I have not been pleased. Two of the socks developed holes in the heels after only a few wears, and the color drained out of them after 1-2 washes. They are a greenish color now.

    No it is not normal. Usually he responds quickly. I love their socks, but they have a problem with shipping. I have received three orders and they all take 4 to 6 weeks. It isn't customs that is holding them up. The shipping method is simply too slow. I originally thought that they took an inordinate amount of time to process the order and prepare it for shipping. I have been told that this is not the case, but rather it is simply shipping time.

    My suggestion would be to increase the price of the socks or increase the shipping fees and figure out a way to ship quicker. People are not used to waiting so long for a RTW item. These are not custom goods. I believe the long waits will cause more frustration and loss of customers than a price increase would.
