So I may have rushed to judement on the Jaywalker Petticoat socks. This is straight from the dryer and the fit is much better. Still not as snug as I like my socks (that may be a mental thing: since women's socks are always too large for me), but definitely wearable.
You can see how square I make my toes, but not a good close up of the heel flap join, but I showed that the other day.
And yes, I haven't shaved in 3 days... thank goodness for Photoshop.
