I saw these on Ebay I think - but they were Euro42 and not sure they would be compatible with our UK washing machine? Anyone do a conversion?

SOOOOOO, I am now really pissed off.

Got an email from the seller saying that the socks had been reduced in size by 20%. Something to do with the government changing the size of a centimetre. I think it might be Brexit related, but not sure.

Anyway, they offered me my money back and 10% compensation. Of course, I'm not going to accept that as my character has been offended and I don't see why I should accept such ridiculousness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean, full refund and 10% compensation Who the fuck do they think they are. I think I want them to send me some free shoes and 2 pairs of the next size up socks - AT A MINIMUM. What do you think - this is more than reasonable, yes?

I'm then going to go on twitter and post a whole load of tweets that their customer service is a bag of shite. They tried to tell me it wasn't their fault and it was the goverment, but I know better and I want my justice.

I've never really thought that standard socks fitted me or my families lifestyle so we purchased the X version. Here's our //M XSocks

I take it these are winter socks? If so, how/where have you stored your summer socks? Do you know of any companies that will store your summer socks for you?

Problem is though that with the new Fancy Dan model you can only put them on automatically as there's no longer a manual fitting option.

On a positive note though the new particulate filters will make them much more palatable to anyone who gets too close.

That'll learn you for buying foreign socks. What's wrong with inches?
