We recently caught up with artist, furniture maker and FITS fan Greg Klassen for a quick Q&A about his work, inspirations and life in the Pacific Northwest. Check out the interview below:
How did you get into woodworking?
What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
You live in the Northwest now. Where are you originally from and how has it shaped you?
What is your favorite part about living in the Northwest?
You often speak about your process and it's importance to your success, from inspiration to finish. If you had to choose, which part of your process is your favorite?
What is the most challenging part of your process?
You've created your own style which people respect. Where do you draw your inspiration? How do you keep your work growing / changing / evolving?
How important to your process is the quality of the tools that you work with?
Do you have any tools that you work with on a daily basis that are sentimental?
Do you have a favorite piece that you have created? If so, what makes it so special?
I am sure your creative process (and raising three kids) takes a toll on your body, and specifically your feet. How important is it for your to have the right support in your job (like FITS socks)?
What do you like about FITS socks? (Made in America, technology, materials, etc)
Your sock size shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our socks range from small to double XL, but the best way to know the perfect fit for you is to match your shoe size to the chart on the left. That way, you’ll know the size you select will give you the fit and feel you expect.
Between sizes? Go with your gut, but rest assured that your socks will still fit great. If you receive your order and find yourself wishing you’d gone up or down a size, just let us know. We’ll happily send you replacements for your preferred size.
Concerned about laundry mix-ups? All FITS® socks are coordinated by color and size, based on the colors you see on the size chart. So, you won’t have to worry about mixing up your sizes with the other FITS® wearers in your home. (But stray socks mysteriously going missing in the dryer? Unfortunately, we can’t help with that.)
Sock sizes are typically measured in inches, not by your shoe size. So, a sock size 6-8 will comfortably fit someone whose feet are between six and eight inches long. However, at FITS®, we make it easy for you to choose the ideal sock size without having to measure your foot. Simply use our sock size conversion chart based on your shoe size to select the right fit for you.
To measure your foot for socks, measure the length from the heel of your foot to the tip of your longest toe. The measurement in inches correlates to your sock size. For example, if your foot is 10 inches long, a sock size 9-11 should fit you comfortably. At FITS®, you can skip this step and find your sock size based on your shoe size using our conversion chart.
The sock size conversion refers to sock size compared to shoe size. While all companies may vary slightly on which size socks to purchase based on your shoe size, you can always measure your foot to find the right fit for you.
Because sock sizes are determined by the length of your foot in inches vs. your shoe size, shoe and sock sizes differ. The FITS® sock size to shoe size conversion is as follows:
Knowing this makes it easy to choose the ideal sock size based on your shoe size without measuring your foot.
Sock sizes typically don’t correlate with age. For kids, age can be a general indicator of what size sock they’ll need, but everyone is different. An adult sock size 9-12 fits anyone whose feet are approximately nine to twelve inches long. For kids’ sock sizing, check with the company to find exact details to ensure your little one gets the perfect fit.
