that's a cool idea but, looking through their shop, as usual i can't understand why there have to be different motifs for men's and women's socks. i always want motifs found on men's socks and they are too big. that sucks!

Just like I always head straight for the section intended for men when shopping for new eyeglass frames ... they have the neutral classic timeless styles while the so-called women's section tends to be pretty much, where my tastes are concerned, ugly short-term "trendy" stuff that pretty much screams which week of which month of which year you bought it in.

Re socks: that's the advantage of the ability to make your own ... you choose the colours/patterning/style and then custom-fit it to your foot. :-) For the manufactured ones from this company I'd strongly suggest writing to them and letting them know that you'd love to be able to buy from them but you've been disappointed by the motifs you like not being available in your size. They're not going to learn to not gender-discriminate/stereotype unless they're smacked for doing it.

done! :) it's a bit of a stretch that i would actually buy socks from a canadian online shop but i *could have* bought a subscription for F in the states. i know she would have liked the bacon socks. :)

Didn't even notice it was a Canadian shop (I found out about it in my Selfish Knitters & Crocheters group which is very international) ... quadruple shame on them then!

I'm glad you did write even if it was, as you say, a stretch ... if they're at all customer savvy then they'll know that for every person who actually contacts them there were likely at least a hundred (or more) who just left the site disappointed and without saying anything. That's a lot of potential sales missed.
