    I have two sets. One of the thin summer ones, and one of the thick winter ones. I love these socks. After several washings they are as good as new. They fit perfect and are great!!! You want to talk about great customer service well let me tell you guys about my experience. Well I ordered a whole set of the summer thin ones. When they came I thought they were a little too thin for my tastes. I emailed them asking if I returned them and sent the difference in price if they would send me the think ones. They only wanted the 25 buck and told me to keep the ones I had and they would send me a second full set. I was very very happy!! These people are the best!!

    I am a little displeased with mine so far. After two washes, most or my pairs are fraying/coming unthreaded at the top. The colors are still vibrant and gorgeous, but that won't do me much good if they unravel [​IMG] I was getting ready to buy the winter socks too, but not sure that it's worth it.

    I'm certain Kemal & Co. will sort this problem out for you. Their after-sales service is nothing but outstanding.


    Cheers

    Our customers' happiness is the most important thing for us. We are always trying to improve our products with your comments and reviews. We worked on top section of socks and made them stronger though winter weight socks have stronger top. Please contact us about any subject in any case. I am not allowed tell the price of wool-silk socks but you can be sure that prices will be the most reasonable price again.

    Same pairs means every property of the pairs must be same(season, style, color and size)

    so one has to buy 5 pairs of red winter cotton over the calf socks to get the 6th over the calf red winter cotton sock over the calf free?[​IMG]

    Kemal,

    how thick are the silk/wool socks going to be? something between the wool and the cotton, or thicker than that wool?

    thanks

    We worked on top section of socks and made them stronger though winter weight socks have stronger top.

    I have a couple pairs of the OTC winter socks and must say they seem very well constructed, and like new after 4 washes. I can't imagine them unraveling.

    They're a bit warm for San Diego weather right now which has gotten back into the 70s as of late. So I ordered a few summer socks... let's see how those fly [​IMG]

    I recently ordered a pair of both OTC summer and winter cotton socks in black, which was after they increased the length of the sock, I believe.

    The socks are of good quality with nice, deep color. The socks stay up all day without ever thinking about them, and so far it seems like they will last quite awhile.

    The cotton is nice, but please note that the summer version is kind of sheer... I can definitely see my skin through them, but it's not incredibly noticeable unless you look. I'd suggest getting a couple summer pairs for when a thin sock is useful...

    Otherwise, I'd order the winter socks since they are not too thick, but definitely hide the skin more. Anyway, I'm happy and will probably place a large order soon enough. Migrating to one manufacture that I enjoy seems like a pleasant thought - I absolutely hate searching for a matching sock in the early morning.

    The Salvation Army is about to get a bunch of socks...

    Any word on when the wool/silk socks are going to be ready? And how about the thickness, as someone else asked?

    I ordered a navy OTC pair a while back that fell down quickly after being washed. Then after you increased the length, I ordered a charcoal pair, but the top part started to come undone. Hopefully, the next pair will be perfect. Glad to see you're responding to feedback, though.
