    Would you be doing mid calf socks in heavy winter weight?

    After using mid calf socks for all of my life I decided to try out OTC - it was a lifechanger. There's no way I'm going back.

    FYI,shipping is slow as hell and tracking is good from their office to the Turkish border, after that you are on your own.

    Would be an idea for them to clearly offer a paid shipping option for faster/insured/trackable shipping.

    I find that flannels and cashmere blends stick on the OTC socks... so I have to have a variety, or else I'm constantly pulling my pant legs down when I stand up from my desk.

    Received my order yesterday. They look to be very nice, but I was suprised to see that they are not true sized socks, which this thread had made me think they were. Mine are all labeled "L" and "US 10-11.5." This doesn't really matter to me as I've never bought sized socks anyway.

    Do you think a larger size would make a difference?

    I have noticed that my left sock falls down 3 or 4 times during the day but my right sock stays put. I guess my calves are different sizes.

    They don't have as many size increments as actual shoes do, but socks don't need quite so many increments. They have 5 different sizes which is as many as is really needed, and is much better than those who only do "S/M/L" or even worse "one size fits all".

    And don't even think about skipping the few bucks extra for the OTC, totally worth it.

    We got some complaints about green which was bright and like an emerald but we changed it to dark forest green. Our socks are really thin and they keep really cool in hot days but still working on thicker socks.
    I need a pair of those forest green socks

    OTC forest green socks are the ones I use the most, they match close to everything.

    Is the "Clemetsen green" to dark? I mean, is it so dark that it may look black? I can't find pictures of the socks on the net, except the ones on Viccel's homepage. I'm not a fan of to colorful socks and judging by pictures I find "Forest green" to bright.

    Thank you.

    Actually you cant find the color on the web coz name belongs to our customer Mr.Clemetsen who recommended us darker green and who sent us some samples and after his support we decided to give his name to the color.

    As you know we are producer from cotton to ready product, If you have special color we can work on them too.
