    Anyone still order from this company?

    I'm looking to order around 8 pairs of decent quality socks - is viccel is recommended here? If so, should I get them mid-calf or OTC? If I recall some posters have commented that their OTC are too high... thanks.

    Yep, still love'em. OTC Heavy Weinter weight all the way. If you want mid-calf I would by somewhere else; they fall down immediately on me. Yes, the OTC is quite high, but I just do a small fold at the top.

    I've bought OTC years ago and they are now unwearable because they fall down. They fell down quite soon after I bought them (4-5 wears). I am wearing the mid-calf at the moment and they hold up fine.

    What others have recommended and I haven't done was ordering a couple of sizes bigger than I normally wear.

    @viccel: do you have any plans to introduce less vibrant colors/more standard business colors? For example now both versions of grey are a little bit more vibrant than a standard pair of grey trousers. Similarly the non navy blue or green socks are a bit too vibrant for my taste for day to day work wear.

    Would have been my assumption as well but others tell me it isn't.

    So if I'm getting this correctly, based on your experience the OTC's fall down after a while (they get loose?), but the mid-calf socks stay up during the day? Anyone else experienced this with viccel? Really can't decide if to get OTC or mid-calf.

    I have only worn my MC socks for a couple of times. The OTC were holding up at this point as well. My OTC socks were falling down maybe from the 5th wearing onwards.

    While my MC fall down all the time, my OTC has gripped nicely against the calf until they were thrown out as a result of holes. If you have larger calfs and some hair they'll stay up.

    This is my experience as well, although I haven't had any holes yet.
