Socks, the most underrated article of clothing

Recommended Posts

are we in a fight now poly?

because if we are my socks will fuck you up.

lol

I'm on the black socks train too. I've got some grey, but I hardly ever wear them. Everyday use I just wear Hanes sport socks. They used to make them quite durable, but I find they wear out quicker lately, I may have to find an alternative.

Dress socks, I got some generic-branded ones I got from a cheap suit store. They're nice and thin, long enough, and comfortable.

Holy, cashmere would be nice.

I hate socks with a heel so I usually just wear plain black tube socks. I just found out that AA makes tube socks in a few different colors though, so I'm going buy some of those soon.

Edit: Nevermind, these socks have a heel. I thought tube socks meant no heel?

I've been looking around and doing my research lately for the perfect winter sock. It seems wool is the way to go vs. cotton. Here's a link I found Wool vs. Cotton. Which is the better insulator? http://www.onsetcomp.com/information/labs/pdf_labs/6972_woolvscotton.pdf

Merino Wool keeps on coming up on my searches, here's what wiki said: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merino

some links to some great socks (they're not cheap, but the quality is great!)

My tops picks are Darn Tough, Smart Wool, WigWam

Darn Tough Made in Vermont (Merino wool)

SmartWool

This site has a great deal on Merino wool 4pack

Campmor has great prices on socks

Anyone know where I can get good quality dress socks for small shoe sizes (7-7.5)? Most men's dress socks are medium and up.

All my socks are white. But then again, they're all ankle socks, so it doesn't even matter what color they are.

I run track, so after school I'm usually in shorts, and in my opinion long socks + shorts makes you look a little stupid. Also, I don't especially want my socks to show if the stacking on my jeans gets uneven so.

Anyways, Under Armour socks are the comfiest socks ever. Super soft even after repeated washings, and cushioning in just the right places. My only problem is that they're a bit thick and don't go well with my Free's when I run. But they're so good.

maybe dont run in frees are those even good fo track (should reference long distance running thread in supercultur)

I'm surprised I haven't posted in this thread yet. Is there special socks you guys wear with boots or do you just wear tube socks?

frankly i do not know why i'd set them up like this pic is old. These have been very kind socks to me. I don't know what material they are but it's not like woven cotton like regular socks. They are about a year old but holding up, no holes or anything and i think they are more durable than other socks (you know how holes form and the threads loser and wider with regular cotton socks, these are stretchy dont know if it has to do with its anti-holiness).

I can't remember the brand but I remember the tag said something about being more breathable, which I dont notice but the colored parts are padded and there is like a mesh on the top of the foot. not to mention they hae like a spoiler on them, pretty cool. I want more of these.

i love socks. i have all sorts. polka dots, stripes, argyle, perforated, cable and solid in a variety of colours.

mostly i just wear them around the house instead of slippers cos they do a better job of keeping your feet warm; especially the knee high ones.

I wore toe socks one day and spent a good ten minutes musing about how weird they were. Then I forgot about then and wore them to my friends place, when we all took our shoes off everyone throughout the night did double takes and long moments of talking about how freaky they were...

Baggy/slouchy socks are so yesterday... superfuture socks are form-fitting, toe-revealing, smells-like-hell motherfuckers! Just like the denim.

I haven't worn anything but red Uniqlo socks since I first discovered them several years ago. I probably have 20 pairs. SA's at my favorite stores all love them when I come out of a dressing room, and I have brought them in as gifts for them sometimes.

The Lavin Socks eats em all.

Honestly though, when I saw this being done by Lanvin I never thought socks could make so much difference in an outfit. It could fucking make THE look! I gotta have one of em socks hopefully the shoe comes free. Damn lavin.

i hate buying socks. whenever i go sock shopping i usually end up coming home empty handed because i cant decide. I can't explain how or why this happens. Anyway now I desperately need to buy some new socks - all varieties. I hate 100% cotton socks. Is there like a online store with some nice socks where I can do all my sock shopping in one go?

edit: I need a lot of pairs by the way. i want to stock up for a long time so I don't have to have the traumatic experience again.

I bought the 4 for $10 Uniqlo socks this weekend and was disappointed to find they are more like dress socks. I need a normal weight cotton sock, but in black.
