Sock question - Page 2

post #16 of 22
I am glad to know that I am not the only one who still uses them, I however use them more often then most people, I just enjoy the feel of them when I have them on, I know that no one actually ever sees that you are wearing them so I guess that's why they are not made to look that stylish.

Without going to Pantherella level prices, yeah, these are well worth the $8 at C21 or Marshall's.

Wool socks are over rated. So are pantherella. I have a number of pantherella i picked up for about $5 a pair, and the only thing I like about them are their designs. They don't feel particularly luxurious, and they have a tendency to fall more than my "cheaper" socks. Definitely not worth retail, or even half that IMHO.

I like gold toe, too bad I don't see any nice colors or designs beside your basic colors. Wool, cotton. In the end, it all doesn't matter. Socks wash and dried, no matter how expensive they are, will start looking like shit within a short time anyway.

Definitely not my experience. Pantherella merino wool socks have felt thinner and more supple to me (the better to feel soft leather shoe socks with), have definitely exhibited less odor after a long day, and have proven extremely durable with no falling in sight.

I would also be careful getting the Pantherella cashmere or wool socks. While they are beautiful, I have not had a good experience with their durability and this holds even for the 70/30 wool/nylon blends.

That is a great idea. I never would have thought of it.
