I'm partial to Marcoliani argyle socks. I have three pairs - one in Peacock blue, one in charcoal, one in navy.

If your not near any decent discount places the Target brand Merona (sp?) has some fun colors for $2.50 each. Pretty thin and they probably won't last forever, but hey you can't wear purple or teal socks all the time.

J.Crew has a few in nice colors.

I have a number of cotton ones from Brooks Brothers - bought them on sale for $8-9/pair. They're well-made, easy to put on, and most importantly, the argyle extends down to the top of the foot (unlike my J Crew ones).

+1. BB's are really nice, but pricey. I have a couple of pairs I bought on sale, which is the only way I'll buy them at BB.

My favorite pair of argyles came from Tricker's. They have an eBay store, and they were nice enough to include a free pair of socks with a recent order. I need to find out who makes tricker's socks because these are far better than any other argyles I own.

The wool argyles from BB were extremely thin.

+1. They're not bad at all, especially if you're starting out in trying to get a selection going. I have some on right now, and they're just fine.

Ben Silver has outstanding socks! Pricey as all get out, but high quality. I have 5 pair I wear regularly with no loss of color or shrinkage. OTC.

I like Falke at Saks. Its over-the-calf version is longer in height than Marcoliani.
