post #119176 of 122416

Corgi and Alden today.

 

I like Corgi socks for some fun patterns, Pantherella wools and cottons are great for staple looks and Chups for a heavier sock. The key for all three brands is the hand linked toes. Anonymous Ism is nice but for only a small extra Chups are that much better. I wash all my socks inside out, cold water gentle cycle and air dry cycle in the dryer or hang to dry.

My feet survived a few years worth of Mongolian winter (wearing exclusively dress shoes (never boots) and walking a minimum of 5 miles a day) almost exclusively because of smartwool socks (as well as their thermals which I also love). I only had 4 pair of them and they all lasted me my entire time in Mongolia. My shoes had holes all over them by the end (they didn't have shoes in my size in Mongolia) but those socks kept my feet warm.

 

was it up hill both ways?

Anyone out there own these Suede Plaza Slip-ons (#3554)?  Would love to see any pics in the wild.

I am a size 12 Barrie and have not dialed in my Van size yet - the 12 van I have is wearable but no where near ideal and had I paid retail for the shoe it would have gone back. I wear the loafer without socks and that is the only reason I can squeeze into it. I will probably be on the hunt for the correct size after the new year.

Awesome sock suggestions... I'd like to find a wool loafer sock that has a low enough vamp to not show.

I have been happy with Falke which you can get from  Mr. Porter. They are a cotton blend but work well for me.

Boot week has been spectacular. Lots of additional solid sock advice. A few maiden voyage hits. #4 boots yes

Really great week. And DonL with the alt 8's- I say good day sir

Thank you all very much for the kind words. Those boots are one of my favorites, The leather is starting to show some nice patina. They've been getting anywhere about once a week every week in the spring/summer months for the last year.
