I've learned to appreciate very, very good socks. For dress socks, my drawer has been emptied over everything buy wool over the calf socks, which I find breathe better, are more comfortable, look better, and keep my feet drier and warmer. Right now, I have a pair of Brooks Brothers, a pair of Saks house brand, and six pair of Pantherella. I would like more of such nice socks, and am always on the lookout for them. And, it is a guilty pleasure that I find I am willing to pay for. So, I was browsing the Paul Stuart site and really just love some of their "hoisery." Does anyone have experience with either the wool argyle over the calf socks or the narrow ribbed merino over the calf socks? Paul Stuart socks They are a bit steep still on their website, though not so high that I'm unwilling to buy. Are they on sale in their stores ever? Are they worth the money? Also, if anyone else knows of a good source of affordable high quality socks, let me know. My Filene's Basement is fresh out of the Pantherellas, which I got for $10 (I should have bought all of them; I'm kicking myself).
