Socks selling here and on ebay are $5.97 @ the rack. Many colors in both lengths were available.
Retail had been $32.50. At the Chicago Mich Ave store, you may need to ask for them

Early this week (Wed) that store had tons of RT (Robert Talbott) socks. When I went back on Sat, the socks were gone. The SA had replaced the RT socks with BOSS socks.
I asked her why? She told me "BOSS socks were more popular". I asked if she could bring some RT socks back out on the floor? After I selected a few, she took the others back. They still had alot of RT socks not on the selling floor. Of course, the BOSS socks are pure junk

Yeah, I picked up several pairs of them a few weeks ago.

The Rack in Topanga store - woodland hills, CA had what looked like several hundred pairs today.

I bought ten styles (but there were several more).

OTC, wool.

At the same $5.97 per.

The Potomac Mills Nordstrom in VA replenished their stock this week some great colors.

I was in there yesterday and snagged a few pair. The TJ Maxx on Winnetka/Sherman Way had three sets of Talbott cufflinks, but I snagged those today.

I nabbed tons in CA on a business trip. Also, they had loads of the Faconnable cashmere ties, which totally kick ass.
I love the RT Sea Island Cotton OTC socks in bright blue and Red.

Went to the Nordstrom Rack in Glendale today.
Had more Talbott (including some cotton) OTC, and some solid colors.
Bunch of Robert Talbott ties (in box) for $24.95.

Being fairly new to these socks - I'm glad to at least find out where some of those on B&S are getting their stuff (although I think they provide a good service, having local access to two Nordstrom Racks may mean bypassing some of the re-sellers).

Some of these socks are in the most ridiculous, 80's color schemes and blocky designs. Leads me to believe they are special purchase. But can't go wrong for the price.

Those Faconnable ties though, they are special purchase, but they are Breur, so they are an excellent buy

Too bad there aren't any Racks within hundreds of miles of me. I'm happy to get them for $10 apiece from forum members. Nice socks.

I do have to fold them at the end a bit otherwise they hit my knee. Other than that they're great.

They are a perfect height for me and fit softly over my hyper developed calves. Anyone who has an issue with over-the-calf socks digging into their legs should check this brand out.
