    Hi guys,

    Am i the only one who does not pay attention to his socks supply until that fatal morning when you realize you have one good pair left?

    What is it you do to always have fresh socks without too much thinking about it?

    Thx.

    When I realize i don't have a rotation of socks that could last me a week then I go off and buy new socks. This is just for work and athletic socks. When it comes to dress up socks I but them based on outfit when needed.

    I just buy a dozen or so charcoal grey socks at a time. If it was a serious issue, I would do it every month or so.

    Check the condition of your undergarments as well. It may be time for a complete undergarment overhaul. A few years ago I went on a shopping spree, buying 60 pairs of socks to meet every need and one dozen eaxh of undershirts and undershorts. Clearance and Factory outlets can save you a lot of money should that be a concern. Welcome to Styleforum I Zhekov.

    Socks never seem to last that long where I'm concerned.
    - Seems to be a law of nature that I always have 3 or 4 odd ones that I can't find the matching sock for.
    - And just general wear and tear means I have to go buy a pack once every month or two and replace the worst.

    But not a major issue in the grand scheme of things.
