    jcrew camp socks look nice but they suck compared to smartwool mountaineering socks, very thick and soft with a lot of cushioning.

    i bought a few pairs of northface hiking? socks, the thickest pair they offer. just as good as smartwool and cheaper. i found them at tjmaxx or marshalls for like 9 bux a pair.

    I'm partial to merino wool camp/hiking socks. You can get them for about 1/5 the price of retail on ebay.

    I like defeet socks. Their wool socks are very nice. I use them for skiing, but they could also be worn in the city.

    Problem with thick warm socks is you need to keep a pair of shoes/boots around that are sized +1. So annoying.

    Filson, Smartwool and Woolrich. All are made in the USA. I get Woolrich at Marshalls, Filson and Smartwool from Sierra Trading Post.

    I just got a pair of Uniqlo Heattech socks that are super warm and comfy.

    Definitely check them out (the sale ends today).

    Keep it simple: buy Craftsman wool/thermal socks at Sears.

    love these camp socks from j crew.

    These socks look good but they're not warm at all, they're mostly cotton.

    I have a few pairs of smartwool socks which are great but in my opinion the best wool socks I've encountered are the Kirkland wool socks they sell at Costco. At Costco a pack of 3 or 4 is around $15 which is a steal. They're identical to the smartwool socks and I've had about 12 pairs last me regular wear over 4 or 5 years. They're machine washable and awesome.

    They're 4 for $25 here, Costco will be cheaper but still worth it...
