These are great wool socks for people who like to wear two pairs of socks with one pair over their calf to their knees. They are great on size!! and length!!! I am tall (201 cm)with long legs (inseam 36, USA) and my feet are size 14 (USA). Finding over the calf in size 14-15 is very difficult for me. Finding the Lorpen was a god send and in fine merino wool too. Have been wearing these socks on backpacking trips lately and they are holding up well. Now looking forward to wearing them this winter with telemark ski boots. I buying another pair, maybe 2 pairs, with my next major purchase.
If you're tall (inseam >34) and average build (men's waist 36-38) you should forget looking here. Is every one short and heavy in America? No complaint on merchandise; it look and feels great. I would have bought these pants if they were "close" to my body frame size. Manufactures should modernized their clothing line for taller people (men and women). My girl friend has the same complaint in women sizes. Two more inches in the legs would make a big difference for many buyers.
