The friction between the socks and pants causes them to "stick" or "catch" such as when standing up after sitting. The pant legs won't fall down right away. Ever see a dude shake his leg after standing? It's not always because his balls are stuck to his thigh.

Not sure if kidding or not. But just in case.

I have found Goldtoe socks to be my socks of choice too. I've never found them for $1:00 though but I actually don't mind paying extra for these OTC socks. Tried the "Carlisle" style in the Goldtoe Premium line but they are very hard to find. Guys...try them if you find them....you'll like them. If you don't...don't worry, I'll buy them from you.
