Congrats. I have a few of those same Nagrani socks that you just received and I absolutely love them. I'm sure you will be happy with your purchase.

Yep, just noticed the loop pulled out a small amount on the green/beige with orange lines. I'll give them a call tomorrow. Sucks cause thats my favorite color combo so far. I'll try to pull it a bit see if the thread goes back in.

I prefer the dandy-ness of DuChamp, but Nagrani's are very nice socks anyway.

zenny: maybe so, and I agree that vk is a bit 80s honestly, but they are nice and are a serious "wait what the heck are you wearing" item without being fully in your face.

I thought they would be sending me more wool socks though based on our conversation. I like what I have though so I ain't sending 'em back though. Maybe in another 6 months I'll place another order with them but ask for wool only. Or maybe go wool only with some other brands. Decisions, decisions.

I even picked up the underwear. I now have 4 different boxer-briefs from different manufacturers that I find to be interesting. One pair from here from.. ugh darn it I can't remember the name but they were bamboo, one from vk and two icebreakers. No doubt about it the vk ones fit the best, but I wish they were wool and not cotton. I don't have anything against cotton or peruvian cotton, but wool rocks especially in the heat.

The icebreakers look like they should be the "supportive" type, but they aren't. The body of the small should be on the wasteband of the medium.. The bamboo boxer briefs are nice and tight but the legs should be another inch or two longer. I wouldn't suggest hiking in them as is, at least not in the heat..
