    Hmm... I did pay $7.70 per sock back in Dec for winter socks, now at $7.93. $.23 more... Wonder if prices move around due to fluctuations in the exchange rate?

    I just received an order of five over-the-calf summer socks in black, navy, charcoal, purple, and scarlet red (the darker one).
    -I'm happy with every color but the scarlet; it's a bit too orangish for my taste. I love the purple, though; the color is vibrant without being obnoxious - a smidge darker than a jewel tone. I may order another pair, as I wore them with a pair of sneakers for fun and they now have a rough spot on each where the tongues of the shoes rubbed on them.
    -They're a bit long on me. I have a 31" inseam and they could go halfway up my knees, so I have to kinda cuff them.
    -Even with the above, they stay up all day. The last couple inches of each sock is tight and elastic without being restrictive, and I went all day without adjusting them.
    -These socks are thin. Every breeze feels great; the feeling is reminiscent of Underarmor. However, I can see this being uncomfortable on any day that it isn't warm out.

    Keep in mind that I've only worn athletic socks and a few pairs from GAP and Express, so my experience is limited. But in conclusion, I am very happy with them, and am considering buying a few pairs of white mid-calf winter socks to wear as basics.

    They're not too long at all. Tape show inches.

    Did you get an order confirmation? All in all, it took me longer than 3 weeks to get the socks, so I wouldn't worry too much.

    I am now on my third order for a total of about 12 socks.

    I am very happy with the socks and service. It takes about 2 - 3 weeks to Australia.

    I would be keen to see some classic pattern socks and some classic clock socks.

    I would also be keen to see some mid calf thicker cotton or wool socks for casual and /or business wear. Some shoes and trouser materials would benefit from thicker chunkier looking socks.

    Dang still awaiting... ordered few months ago. But the package came to the US on 2-20, and is in the twilight zone.

    USPS requires the sender to start an inquiry, so I sent Kemal an email asking them to start an inquiry.

    When we check the register id of the package it seems that arrived to USA in 20 days after you made order. I will try to check the status from Turkish post office.

    Thks Keaml-- again npt an oissue from your end , but the USPS wil not let me sart an inquiry on this --has to be done by the sener--so you may have to contact usps or have Turkish sender do that?

    3 plus weeks in customs is ridiculous imo....

    For sure I will contact Turkish post office about delay.

    Kemal, we corresponded over email over the last few days.

    i wanted to say my order of 10 socks had just arrived. thanks for your patience over email and here, as well as the great service. if we could get the google spam filter on your side, you'd be unstoppable.

    i've yet to try on the socks, and will post a little about them once i have.
