Rated 1 out of 5 by Ebor Shrinks and fades too much
I turned over my 'weekday' sock collections at the start of the year with these socks in navy and gray, keeping only a few pairs of a different brand navy socks that I've had for years. In 9 months the socks have faded so much that I'm embarrassed to wear them as the contrast to the color of my suit material is too stark and looks terrible. Additionally, they are so tight now, even though I have slim feet. I purchased a few pairs of the Brooks Brothers wool socks at the same time and they have held up much better. I wish I could replace my crew ribbed with the wool, or just return altogether. FYI, these were washed and dried in the same manner as my different brand socks which look good after 3+ years so it is a problem with the quality of the material and not my laundering process. I hope this is helpful.

If this were the first item you ever bought from Brooks Brothers, it would surely be your last. I can't believe Brooks would even "green-light" such an ill conceived design. The socks are too tight even for my 11-C foot. As unfortunate as that may be, I can hardly focus on how the sock digs into my calves because the seam across the toe hurts even more. This is one more case where Brooks is being run from the boardroom and has lost touch with quality.

I have been wearing these socks for years. They fit right into my sock collection between casual (jeans) and dress (suit and tie). I wear them with colored chinos, khakis,cords, blazer with slacks, casual oxford shoe or penny loafer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Oguradai Poor fit and toe seam
I have narrow ankles and calfs and these socks actually hurt to put them on. Much too tight. The toe seam is like a peice of rope accross the toe area. Need handlinked toes.

Not very "crew-like" or sporty. Looks like typical over the calf socks just shorter. Little stretch or give, not nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BrianinWallaWalla wish the socks were a bit larger
I have wide, size 12 feet and wish that the sizing were a bit more generous.

The natural colored ribbed crew socks matches my chinos perfectly.
Great fit and looks stylish.
