    Ben Silver carries the wool and nylon(?) Argyle socks pictured below (top photo), I'm wondering if anyone knows who makes them. There was a time I could also find them at Paul Stuart and Mettez ... but I haven't been in either stone in a while and I don't see them on either website.

    The reason I ask is that this brand has Argyles in other colors ... and it's those colors that I happen to like. There was a great one in dark green, olive and red-orange ... and another in olive, dark green and yellow. I bought six of each pair the last time I 'stocked-up' (15+/- years back) ... but these are nearing the end of life. I'm hoping to find the same ones again and restock.

    I'm also open to alternate options ... as long as in wool or a wool/stretch blend.

    The colors I'm seeking are contained in the photo below ... the third and fourth from the left.

    Hm, I guess quality of one thing is always relative to something else, but I wear my Burlington socks for years before they need to be disposed.

    If Burlington socks suit your needs, they obviously work for you. And I certainly am not questioning their longevity.

    I should have been more specific, I'm looking for a finer quality of craftsmanship.
