    Thumbs up Viccel.com Socks!

    I got some socks from http://www.viccel.com and they are a great value!

    Made from 100% mercerized cotton, which has a stronger fabric structure and will not shrink or lose its shape in a very thin sock, with reinforced heels, and toes.

    Plus you should see the colors! The prices are very reasonable too.

    Sweat is a strong solvent for dyes in socks, but Viccel uses Indantherene dyes, which do not disolve in sweat and these socks keep their original color. Also Indantherene dyes are resistant to light, washing, and chloride.
    Your black socks will stay black no matter how many times they are washed.

    As long as they come in black and navy color options, I'll give them a try...perhaps a brand to compete with the GoldToes, eh!

    Is that address correct? When I try going to viccell.com or www.viccell.com, they come up as invalid addresses.

    Those socks look short to me. Men wearing them might show leg when sitting down - a no-no. I prefer over-the-calf length socks.

    only have elastane in top section rate of it aproximate 1.5%. But this elastane does not have direct connection to skin because its placed inside socks' fabric.

    Length of socks change depends on size and equal to foot length. Actually its hard to see leg when you sit down.

    But many people requested OCT Socks and we decided to add them in our production range. They will be ready end of this month.

    Andy,

    How would you compare these socks against Pantaharella, Marcoliani, Corgi and Falke?

    They are cheaper! :icon_smile_big:

    Actually the only socks that you mention that I have had any personal experience with is a couple pairs of Pantherella from Alex Kabbaz http://www.customshirt1.com/PantherellaPix01.htm

    Now if someone would like to send me a pair or two of Marcoliani, Corgi and/or Falke I would be more than happy to give you my opinion! :icon_smile_big:

    Most of the socks in my sock drawer are Polo/RL.

    you would buy different colors too.

    If you want to get 15% discount after ordering 6 pairs black socks only you have to do is sending mail with the colors you want. Socks will be sent as your color selection.

    I just had a brief dialog with someone from Turkey. I told him I would be more than happy to purchase a few pair of their socks and try them out.

    But the only method of payment is via PayPal, (Huge rip-off that I have never, and will never use) or to put your credit card, (with a $20K limit) number into their web site that could be hacked and suddenly the fifty dollar sock purchase is a nightmare from hell.

    Great deal!

    No thanks, I'll pay fifty dollars a pair for my socks before I will put my credit card into a computer.

    I've been using PayPal since 2001 with (cross my fingers) NO Problems and it's been a godsend to me and this website. I could have never sold my books or accepted any payments without it!

    Contact kemalony for other forms of payment. I know he'll be glad to work with you.

    Then I suggest you never ever use your credit card in a store as it will end upon computers just the same....

    ditto

    In over 10 years of using Paypal I have never had one issue.

    In over 14 years of using credit cards, I have had my cc info stolen three times. All three times it was the same - some kid using a magnetic stripe reader to steal the cc's info and then they recreated a fake care with that info.

    The first time a cop explained it to me, my mouth dropped to the floor. Apparently its getting quite common.

    Quick fingered, techie 18-22 year olds seem to be the largest culprits at the moment, in particular at casual dining restaurants when they can take your card out of sight (they pickup at the table and take off supposedly to register; in contrast, at a store they usually ring you up in front of you).

    By the way, you can now use prepaid credit cards that have a max limit. Pain in the neck, but if you do not trust a site, you limit your loss.
