    HELP! We need your feedback.

    Hello,

    It's been a while since we posted, things have been extremely busy here at Kilt Sock HQ. We're starting work on our 2018 range and would like your feedback... What colour of kilt hose do you want to see? Is there a jacket colour trending at the moment? Do you prefer plain to fancy stitch?

    Any feedback would be great and as a token of our appreciation, we're offering XMarks members 30% off your next kilt hose order by using code THANKYOU30 at the checkout. That would mean a MASSIVE 29.70 off full tartan hose!!

    Looking forward to your expert opinions

    I love a fancy knit, and it seems to be hard to get claret or bison colours. Thanks for the offer!

    Thank you for your feedback Bill. We make Lewis kilt socks in both bison and claret, perhaps we should offer those colours in a wider range of styles.

    Maybe a purple in the lewis or rannock line that's the same purple the garter ties, perhaps an alternative color top like someone on here just dyed could be interesting.
    I also prefer fancy stitch but my wallet prefers plain, in the midst of a move now but fully planned later this year to get a trio of your fancier socks, one for each tartan kilt.

    We offer a purple in style Rannoch: https://www.houseofcheviot.com/rannoch-thistle?product

    They are priced at 39.95 but would only be 27.96 with the discount code mentioned in our original post.

    We're thinking about trying new cable tops and possibly a marled sock for next year which would incorporate blues, greys and purples. Grey and purple seem to be gaining in popularity!

    Thank you so much for the feedback, much appreciated.

    Hello Ashley, as a regular satisfied user of your plain hose both with the kilt and out in the field shooting there is little to improve. I do wonder if your "fancy weaves" are bulkier? From a shooting perspective, there is precious little room around my wellingtons in the calf area for extra bulk! Just a thought.

    Finally if I may, I would like to bring something else to your attention. I have little need to wear your smashing argyle patterned hose these days, but sadly, on the two occasions that I have needed to wear them in the last few years, I found them immediately far too tight(think thrombosis tight) around the top of the calf where the hose top turns over. So tight that I could not wear them even for a minute. I hasten to add, that on both occasions on return to the merchant who supplied them, my money was refunded in full. Now I am no slim Jim, neither am I huge and I really don't think my admittedly fairly large calves are anything out of the ordinary, size wise------I have absolutely no problem with your plain hose, never have-------so something worth you looking into?

    Thank you for your feedback - much appreciated.

    Are you referring to our Rannoch shooting stockings? When this design was first introduced most men wore brogues on shoot days therefore the top is quite chunky. Have you tried any of our other shooting socks? The Kyle is particularly popular at the moment (sold with matching garter ties) and would offer more room in your wellies. https://www.houseofcheviot.com/catal...result/?q=kyle

    I'm sorry to hear that - it is something we'll definitely look into. The Argyle hose should fit up to a 20 inch calf approx. I'll mention this in our production meeting on Monday - thank you for highlighting this.

    Don't forget to use the 30% discount

    Thanks again for your comments.

    I missed the one purple, on your site there is a shop now button that let's you look through but excludes some of the colors and styles. This is based on a smart phone.

    If you type 'Rannoch' into the search bar they will appear. We're currently working on the site so there are some inconsistencies. The Thistle colour is gorgeous though and you can never go wrong with Rannoch.

    Thank you for looking into the issue that I raised.

    I do wear brogues shooting when conditions allow and a far more comfortable way to enjoy a days shooting it is. Sadly, British weather and British terrain does not always allow the wearing of brogues!

    I never look at what style your plain hose are! I just look at the colours and then just buy half a dozen pairs at a time. Oh, I really cannot be bothered with the garter ties, they end up in the bin with the wrapping.
