I have Purchased the Canterbury Socks before at another retailer and was pleased with them. The Canterbury Socks I received today, were Paper Thin, completely unlike the Quality I used to Trust, Apparently the manufacturer is cutting the Quality and using less expensive materials. Also these Socks were unusually Large, when compared with the previous ones I bought.
These socks have a tighter elastic at the top, which wasn't apparent in the picture. Socks that have this feature cause my ankles and calves to swell. I have pretty slender ankles, so this is not a fit problem. If this is a problem for you, don't buy these socks.
I have purchased Gold Toe socks from Essential Apparel for years and these were the first I was unhappy with. I think the manufacturer is using cheaper material. The elastic stretches after first wear and does not return to the original form. Will avoid the 3 packs from now on. The individually packed socks have changed too, but are still satisfactory.
