PSA: If you're ever wanted to put your toe...into the wild world of OVER THE CALF (OTC) socks Lands' End has a terrific deal on Merino Wool OTCs.
They're $6.99 for two pair and 30% off - making them $2.44/pair. They have Navy, Brown, and Khaki.
I own these and will say the Not Quite Perfect area of Lands' End has never let me down. I've never been able to see any defect in them.
I own 6 pairs of these and I can confirm they're awesome socks.
