post #23431 of 48617

I don't mean to blow Jason's trumpet but, when I bought my HC ties, he gave me a pair of ribbed Pantherella socks. When they arrived I was most skeptical. They are wafer thin cotton socks. I thought they would quite literally disintegrate after one wear.

 

Anyway, I had also bought some 'cotton rich' socks from Myer. After about 4-5 washes, the Myer socks have started to 'pill'. The same number of washes for the Pantherlla socks has had no effect on the sock at all. The ribbing is still 100% new. It is quite incredible.

 

The only problem is, I am a big fan of thick socks. Pantherellas are anything but.

^ Happy Socks are reasonably thick cotton found they wear ok, I have a coupe of pairs of Pantherella wool socks they are thiner than my Marcolini but I mostly wear wool socks all year round.

Happy Socks will no doubt be on sale at DJ on Boxing Day, now since dinner is on excuse me it time for a cold one or two.

If it's at all hot there as it is here, you will need 3 at the very least : )

I like thicker wool socks too. Smartwool New Classic (thickest) & City Slicker are what I have settled on. Mid calf & they stay up well.

There is only one brand of socks and that brand is bonds.

Either its the heat or you have been drinking.

I still wear Bonds singlets but since 2008 I have had to go up a size as they shortened the length or else i wear wife beaters.

Just pulled the trigger on two C&Js; Lowndes black suede and Canterbury black calf (UK 9.5E).

 

I couldn't decide which one I wanted so I ordered both! Once they arrive, I'll decide which to keep and sell the other on eBay or through the B&S forum.

I'll use them for work, however, the Lowndes might only come out on a Friday smile.gif

Totally! He just wears a t-shirt and jeans in the non-Armoury sponsored videos.

Guys could anyone recommend me a brown leather satchel bag appropriate for work? $500 is my cap.

I love the RMW bags but at $1K they're out of my price range frown.gif
