    The socks are a replacement of the ones that Wolsley has stopped making. They are quite good but just a bit too tight and thus difficult to pull on.

    Our Response

    Thank you for your feedback on this sock. The Rupert the Tailor Red Top socks are a replacement sock for the discontinued Wolsey grip tops, so they are generally a firm grip, as this is what customers require from this sock. They are manufactured (in the UK)to be less tight than the original. Can yo...

    Customer Comment

    I already have a pair of these socks which are proving OK - it is difficult to find long socks like these which aren't very thick or are made of pure wool which doesn't wear as well as those with nylon reinforcement. Also it is good to find socks which fit properly instead of being one size fits all - which it can't

    Tried and rejected on comfort grounds: Would prefer not to rate because this may be just MY opinion however this is not permitted by your site

    Our Response

    Thank you John,
    we are awaiting the return to examine. These are sometimes considered tight round the top, Wolsey used to describe them as "Grip Tops". They are not for everyone. Have you tried soft tops?
    Regards

    Husband likes these socks, good substitute for the Wolsey product. However i feel that the Wolsey product is a softer and better quality yarn and washes better. But in the event that Wolsey have discontinued their line, the Rupert product will continue to be product of choice.

    Good quality, first time worn they seem only just long enough, I would have prefered then at least 2" longer to give a turn-over for comfort (5 x DVT and a bit careful nowadays!), I'll have to see how they perform for comfort/fit by the end of the day - and after a wash.

    Customer Comment

    I was really pleased to find these new Red Top Socks, but after a few wears I am finding that they are tearing when I put them on.

    This concerns me because they are almost new.

    The Wolsey ones I have are still going strong in most cases with many times the number of uses.

    Our Response

    I'm very sorry to hear you have a problem. I'm surprised you haven't contacted us to say that there is a fault with them, so we could sort it out for you. We are here on the phone from 9am - 5pm Mon- Fri and we can also be contacted by email.
    We will reslove this for you.

    Customer Comment

    The length up my leg seems to be shorter than the earlier chinese-made version. The UK version only reaches to about one inch short of my kneecap. Whereas, the Chinese ones fitted quite snugly right up under my kneecap and were consequently supported better by my calf muscles.

    The socks make a good substitute for Wolsey Grip top. I think they have less wool than Griptop, only time will tell if they are as durable.

    Customer Comment

    I have tried these socks as a replacement for the Wolsey line that is no longer manufactured. The news ones appear somewhat thinner and this give me concern, as with the old product, I used to find the heel would wear through very quickly and I am worried that this may be even worse.

    Our Response

    The sock are made from a finer wool but we have made sure these will wear better with the reinforcement in the heal that also goes up the back and on the ball and toes. I hope after wearing them you will agree that wear well. Please come back to us when you have had a chance to wear them for a while...

    Good socks, certainly as good at the later Wolseys, but not as good as the old ones, which were thicker. However, I will still buy these. I guess they are saving on the amount of wool in them nowadays!

    Our Response

    Thank you for your feedback these socks are made from a finer better quality wool with a reinforced foot so I hope you will find they will wear better.
