Donegal, you say? Do you also say 40-42R?
Congrats and best wishes to you both.
Can't...take...the...suspense...
Mmmm...tweed-ily indeed-ily. If those are 40-42R...
This.I use a garment bag in the wash and wash the socks on cold, delicate cycle, and then line-dry them. Works like a charm. I hand-washed them when I started but the time commitment was a bit much for socks. The garment bag prevents pulling.
Deets?
If you're a hard user of socks I might shy away from the pricier socks as they can wear out if not cared for properly. That said, I've worn my socks pretty well (I'm a teacher so I'm on my feet all day, walking around, going from meeting to class and such - definitely not a desk job) and I've only managed to wear a very small hole in one sock at the toe after almost 2 years.

^^This is what drove me, finally, to pay top-dollar for socks: the ability to buy properly sized socks. *Such* a difference, not just in aesthetics but in feel as well.

Not knowing anything about what sort of jackets you have, it's hard to make a recommendation on a second color. What about two shades of grey, one light and one medium/darker? Light grey is a wonderful color for trousers, and darker grey is classic.I cuff my wool trousers because I like the look and feel of it, especially on flannel. YMMV.Glad to hear you came through ok.
