A question about white socks. Yes, white socks.

Well I never thought I would have to ask something like this, but believe it or not I’m having a very hard time finding your absolutely basic, run-of-the-mill white crew socks!

I bought a bunch maybe 14 or 15 years ago and eventually they’ve all worn out. But every time I go to Target or any other general retailer I simply cannot find plain, featureless, no frills white crew socks. Every single manufacture (Hanes, et al) seems hellbent on putting newfangled stitching, wicking technology, comfort zones, etc. and I hate all of them (even color at the toe to indicate some sort of quality brand). I just want your completely normal, featureless, homogenous, uniformly-knit white socks.

Any tips?

Have you looked at lower-market dept stores? They're my first stop for staple uber-basics like this. Looks like Macy's, Kohl's JCP have some all-white ones that would work.

There are a bunch of links here, though some might be out of date and require that you do some additional detective work.
The Unlikely Return Of White Socks

All of PTO's recommendations are kinda pricey though since their fave manufacturers are focused on fancier things and their white socks are perhaps somewhat overproduced.
