http://www.landsend.com/products/nqp-mens-wool-rib-over-the-calf-dress-socks-2-pack/id_262142

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.

Thanks for that!

Got them with the 20% discount so having a hard time convincing myself NOT to keep them smile.gif

Thanks, Mac. I did that last night and brushed. It does go away, but returns when I wear them. If it is normal as it seems to be, then I am OK with it.

I attribute that roughness to the shell itself ... as if the skin was not perfectly shaved at the tannery. Two of my 4 cordovan footwear have that fine stubbly feel to it ... brushing and conditioning can knock down the "stubble" but it eventually returns.

Sazon,

You are obviously an impeccably dressed man. Perfect crease in the slacks, even the laces all lie perfectly flat. And oh yeah, your Numbah Fowah's ain't bad either.

There is one twisted lace in there.....LMAO. I attempted to keep all my boot laces flat, but I gave up!

I note at least one twist in there as well. And of course, the left-over-right lacing pattern would never pass a Marine Corps inspection...

Wow, you've got a good eye tifosi. Took me 3 scans before I caught that.
