    Are there any plans to offer the 100% merino wool socks in plain colors? I'll order several pairs once they become available in plain black. Thanks.
    Thats what we started to produce yesterday [​IMG]

    Do the prices on the site include shipping?........because I just made my first order and there was no additional shipping added to it.

    Either way, I'm excited to get the purple merino wool socks! (plus a few more modest pairs).

    (BTW- the site is a little glitchy. I was adding/subtracting socks and it would delete the wrong ones and add the wrong ones sometimes. I got what I wanted eventually but just a heads up)

    The constant "Please wait, page is loading" makes me feeling like I'm visiting a website in 1995!

    Kemal, what are your plans for the underwear range?

    Free shipping. But keep in mind it will take about 18-25 days. (worth the wait)

    They are colored as purple(like our cotton purple) and black.

    All items are posted as free shipping no additional shipping cost. We tried to make page easy to use personally I dont like to move different pages and designed that. If you have any suggestion I would like to learn.

    we got some complaints about that message [​IMG] I think I will remove that tonight Sorry for engineer designed page

    Be sure to give the OTC length a try. You will never look back...

    I have tried the OTC. Purchased some to try with the midcalf. Maybe because I short legs but can't get use to them.

    One of our friend asked about superfine socks. I saw many sheer socks around as nylon and we tried to produce them as 100% Cotton. We liked trial products so put them on Viccel page. Superfine socks are %30 finer than current summer weight socks. They are made of 60/2 Ne gazzed and mercerized yarn. When you wear them really you forget there is socks on your feet. Wish you all peace and happiness for 2011 [​IMG]

    I am still getting used to the Summer Weight socks I ordered (I have 3 or 4 pair of Winter Weight in the mail right now).

    I'm curious as to how people deal with the transparency of the socks. I do like the light feeling of almost no sock at all, but it looks odd [to me] that you can see my skin through them. Is this normal for dress socks? I have rather large calves so maybe due to the significant stretching of the sock is causing this issue to be amplified for myself?

    Not sure why people are worried about seeing skin through socks. You're going to be wearing these with dress pants and dress shoes, no?

    Exactly. So when my pant leg rises up for various reasons, it looks odd that I have pasty white skin showing through the sock. It's like when people wear super thin white shirts and don't realize it looks bad to see straight through it...

    Thanks Kemal. I'll try them. I would have thought that if they are thinner than summer you might have made them first in mid calf. But as you have converted me to OTC I expect that even OTC they will be cool enough for summer.

    Best wishes for 2011.
