Have spoken to my contact. Am going to go to a factory tomorrow feel the quality of the materials and also guage the thickness of the sock. Will go for an average thickness.
I reckon with the exchange rate ARRSE and postage, that they will be five English a pair, but I will try to beat him down. Also, I will ensure that there are pairs available for DB and her small footed friends.
Delivery might actually be quicker than the legendary ties, if I understood his broken English. However, I will not post them on ebay until I have them in my hand. Photgraphs of the quality on tomorrow night!!!
Ah, GBTD, what a thoroughly spendid idea. If these don't sell like hotcakes, then the Army is getting chippier than i thought. Early research has shown that those voting for No.4 socks attract 98% more girls than those without. You know it makes sense. BUY NO.4 SOCKS OR MOVE TO FRANCE.
Thank you for all those who have paid attention to the whole ARRSE sock issue. I feel warmed inside from your kind attention.
Right, this is the most important post I have put on since Gentlemen's Smut on the Officers' board. The No 4 sock will be available in the ARRSE SHOP soon. When I get the photographs, then I will get them published. Still not sure of the cost. From the advance samples, they will look good. lambykinspursetheyoung and I (0A will be over soon) will go and get them when they arrive.
They will be in size 4 - 7 and 7 - 11. There will be fifty pairs of each (slightly less 7 - 11 as I will have to have a few pairs!!!!). If anymore are needed, then I will get them. Good CO has been blinding and together, we will dominate the sock world.
In summary, they will be on as soon as I get them. I will get a photo to the shop (and here) of them when I have them (yes, they will fit onto my hooves and under my robes)! Those who have pledged to buy them can go straight to the shop and order.
I've just added the ARRSE socks to the shop. Please note:
These are being sold on behalf of Goatbag, with no profits to ARRSE, nor to him I think.
Will be posted from Cyprus - postage is included in the price.
It would be ideal if you could pay by paypal so that it doesn't complicate our accounting too much.
ANy orders from outside the UK / BFPO or Cyprus, please PM goatbagthedruid and he'll work out how much to pay. You'll be able to go through the standard checkout process, then add whatever he says on once you arrive at the paypal pages.
