Not as the photo portrays
Posted by Conner on 12th Apr 2020
Thinner than you'd expect. I ordered large, and the hose were far too tight. The turnover material was third rate. I contacted the supplier, they replied that the hose were too tight and not as good as the proper wool hose, they just said send them back if you don't like them. I also had to pay £18 import tax, they keep that under wraps. I would never recommend the full hose, they are third rate. Pay a bit more and get the proper ones. Rubbish really (John's reply: Sir, the offer still stands to send them back for a refund. We don't want a customer paying for a product they do not like. You are clearly a customer who should have considered the hand knit diced hose. I do want to mention that no attempt was made to hide the fact that international orders will be assessed customs duties. We clearly state that on our page on shipping, which I mentioned repeatedly to you before. I've also added that to the check out page for customers outside of the US. International shipments are definitely subject to your country's customs service. That is the law.)
Really nice product and quick service

I ordered the diced red and green hose -- they are great! The price was right and the service was quick. J. Higgins can't be beat!
Good product, excellent customer service.

I bought two sizes knowing that they had the potential to fit small/snug; this was confirmed when test fit. My advice is to buy one size larger than you would otherwise need. Look good with my mess kit.

These are a real bargain for full hose. I wear a size 9 1/2 shoe and the medium size hose fits just right.

Just like the description. I wear a US size 13 and these worked great for my feet and calf size.
Size may be a problem
Posted by Don on 22nd Aug 2018
I purchased a pair of Large (my shoe size) and extra large since I have big calves. I was a front row Rugby Union forward in my youth and the muscled part of my calf ranges from 15-17" in girth. The XL foot actually fit my US size 11(1/2) foot and the top of the hose had diamonds that turned into losenges. The actual top of the hose, after they stretched over my calves didn't have enough left over to turn down properly.
It's too bad really -- I had hopes that I'd get a pair of dress hose at a reasonable price and ones that might not be as touchy as the wool ones that I had and accidentally shrank.
They'd be great for someone with smaller girth calves, so I haven't given them a really low score. They're just more or less useless for me.
Looks like I have no choice but to save my coins for a pair of Cheviot sometime in the future. Sad really -- red diced is perfect with MacGregor since it resembles the Rob Roy tartan. (John's reply: Yes Don. I agree. These machine knit are tight for those with large calves. I'd be happy to take them back, and order you a pair of the Cheviot hand knit and apply the purchase price towards the Cheviot so send them back if you'd like a refund or an exchange).
Well made but calves are too tight

I ordered XL white and red diced hose. I wear a 13 shoe and the foot fits well but I have a 17" calf and the hose are stretched for all they are worth. Hopefully they loosen up after some wear. Shipping was very very fast. (John's note: Yes, I agree. These are on the tight side due to the way they have to be made. Keep them away from hot water and the dryer. They loosen up a little bit).
Good parade hose for a good price

Good parade hose for a good price. Still too early to tell how time and wear will treat them but right now, they fit the bill (and my budget) very nicely.

These hose are not as thick as hand knit hose, of course, but they are about the same thickness of quality single-color kilt hose, i.e., House of Cheviot. I was concerned that they might be very thin, but they are not. The quality is very good, and they are very comfortable. I will wear them for formal evening attire. My shoe size is 10, and I ordered Large; they fit perfect, and there is plenty of stretch. Others said the pattern distorted on their calves. This might be true if you have large calves, but it might help to order one size larger. I am 5'7" with average size calves and see no distortion. They look good. Also, I was wondering if the red might be a bit orange like ancient red, but it is not. It is like a modern red color.
