Chup Socks / Re: CHUP-TS1 - "Life Long" Socks with Cordura®
« on: Yesterday at 04:02:50 pm »
As a big fan of Darn Tough socks, I can't help but ask (and re-ignite a relatively controverse topic that has probably been discussed many times before) if anyone would recommend these over Darn Tough socks in terms of durability, comfort and overall quality.   

@cityofdelusion I'm afraid Giles has never owned Darn Tough socks, so we can't compare.  All I know that he's really hard on socks and wears them out very quickly, these Chup socks with Cordura are the only ones that last on him, and they do last extremely well.

CHUP-TS1 - "Life Long" Socks with Cordura®

Chup will boast that their "Life Long" socks might possibly be the last socks you buy.  Knitted with Invista's highly durable material, Cordura®, which is 7 times as strong as normal yarn and gives amazing durability of 6 to 10 times that of ordinary cotton socks (scientifically tested and verified). These socks include Cordura yarn from top to bottom, not just in the heel, toe and sole (the minimum for socks to be able to use the Cordura name).

Subject to abrasion testing for wear, to pass they must survive 500 times - Chup's "Life Long" socks clear the abrasion test more than 30,000 times.  So they may not be indestructible, but they do wear extremely well (as Giles, their biggest fan, will testify).

USD36

Size Medium (UK 6-9.5)

5 Colours:  Black, Blue, Indigo, Navy and Olive

I've just added some Chup socks to the Outlet - if you have big feet, you're in luck (they are almost all size L) ;D

OUTLET NEWS

With colder weather setting in, our remaining stock of Astis gloves and mitts has been added to the Outlet today (G and I are very upset these didn't sell as well as hoped, we love 'em - anyway, nothing ventured nothing gained).  So for those of you who are looking forward to snowy days (and nights) - skiing, snowboarding or simply building a (politically correct) snowperson in the garden, do take a look at these super-special gloves and mittens.

In addition, Obbi Good Label and Faith have discontinued some of their product lines, so a number of wallets, coin holders and other accessories have been added to the Outlet.

Happy bargain hunting!
