hey all--- I found out about Viccel (hello Kemal) on the SF board and ordered 4 or so. Loved em, ordered 6 or so more. will be ordering a few more
I prefer the mid calf as i have large calves, these hug but do not strangle me. Honestly the most breathable socks i ever wore, tried em all.
I found the normal (have not tried summer, as the normal breathed so well, no stink foot in 100 degree weather. I also have not yet tried the wool-silk sox, but everyone on SF has loved em.
I wear with my aldens, allan Edmunds, and casual footwear. in rain, snow and het these shine through.
NOTE: on the shipping, as it comes from Turkey it has to clear customs, first time i ordered customs held them up over a month! second time cleared customs in a few days --go figure....
Try em you will be amazed...
In addition to that you may see old prices as overlined and new prices together.
if you have further question I m ready to answer

I just placed an order for four pair of the wool/silk blend socks (one in each available color). I look forward to giving them a try. Thank you for offering the discount for B&B members!
We are working on new page design while producing new products
I will be happy to see your comments
I have been shopping for socks so that I can compare them to Viccel. I very nearly paid full price for these from Jos A Bank: I am glad I waited (for today's one day sale). I have no idea how good they might be, but for that price....
Thanks for the heads-up on that sale!
Just bought eight pair on the JAB sale - thanks for the heads up! At that price, if they last a year, I'll be happy.
Well, my dress socks just came. $145 worth of socks shipped to the house for $40. Not too shabby! Thanks again for the tip - they fit great.
Mine came in Thursday. They fit nicely now, but we will see how they are after a few washings.
How well do they stay up? I loathe socks wear like spats after twenty minutes.
I just got the Jos A Bank socks, so it will take a few weeks to see how they wear.
With regard to the Viccel wool/silk otc socks, I've washed and worn each pair seven times so far, and they still stay up just fine. That said, their all-natural nature is something of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, they are very comfortable, and they handle foot sweat exceptionally well. On the other, they have shrunk slightly, and some of the colors have faded a shade or so (not the black, though). I suspect that socks made with artificial materials will last longer, but likely won't be as comfortable.
Finally 100%Merino socks are ready. We are really sorry for latency tests and improvements took more than we expected but production hides many things for latency if you are dealing yarn to ready socks.
As brief they are made of australian merino wool as 2 ply yarn which supplies softness and strength.
100% Merino wool socks are 40% thicker than wool-silk socks but they are as soft as wool-silk.
For now we have 8 colors as usual we would like to learn your new thoughts about colors
