socks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I apologize for this dumb question in advance.

 

I posted earlier about how my 11D shoes from AE seem a bit loose.  I am fully convinced they run big, but with the AE shoes, I got some nice socks from AE as well, and I noticed the other 11D shoes I have seemed big as well!  The fancy AE socks are pretty thin.

 

Do dress socks have to be the real thin kind of socks, or is it OK to wear a slightly more bulky kind of dress socks?  I know I can't wear those rag wool socks (which are great for casual wear!) but is it OK to wear a slightly thicker wood-like sock with a shirt/tie/jacket, provided the sock does not fit or look like a rag wool sock?

 

Hopefully you have some idea what I am trying to get at...I am doing a pretty bad job at articulating what I am trying to ask.

Its fine, nothing wrong with it. Like you said, as long as it doesn't look like a pilling wrangly wool.
