Hello!
When do you wear OTC dress socks? What colors and brands? When pulled up how close to knees are they?

I would try Paul Stuart, I enjoy their socks. I am not sure how far they are from my knee, but they go above my calf.

How long should my socks last? I'm wearing all cotton and showing some wear after a year. These are in rotation with other all cotton. I know blend would last longer but I'm not really interested in that. I'd like to try linen as well. Not sure what to expect-maybe I am unreasonable? I'm interested in Mes Chaussette Rouge. Been using gentleman gazette which are, 'meh'. Thoughts? and thanks

About two inches below the knee. Think of baseball players.
