    New member from Brisbane here, hello all! So here is the question:

    Where is a good place for socks in Brisbane? I checked the usual DJ's, Myers. Nothing there, few upmarket shops had some for over $65 a pair. I wanted something slightly cheaper that $65 as i am going to be buying these often, but in decent colour other than black. So single colour dark red, navy etc.

    Seen some online, but i wanna pick em up this weekend. Impatient i guess...

    Come ask in the Australian members thread. Some of the brisbane guys might be able to help you out. However, the common answer is going to be to buy online.

    Gold Toe from beltoutlet.com or on ebay are good. Please don't buy retail in Australia. Retail in Australia is evil and needs to die :)

    Sometimes Marcoliani or Pantherella socks can be had for good prices at DJs during sales, but otherwise online is definitely your best bet.

    There's a thread somewhere on Styleforum about a Turkish (I think) maker of socks called Viccel - their website is here. If you want plain-colour socks (ie no patterns) then they seem pretty damned good.

    Alternatively, Howard Yount (a business based in the US, started by a Styleforum member) sells Marcoliani socks at good prices with cheap shipping.

    There are also several UK websites that sell affordable, good quality socks.
