    Jazz man reporting in from the desert. It is more miserable than I anticipated. On the good side, my first time in Vegas. Don't care for the casino scene but the shopping is outstanding (dangerous?). Passed by the Brioni store and was knocked out by 2 jackets and a pair of shoes in the window. This motivated me to try my luck, put $20 in a slot machine, 2 minutes later my money is gone. Oh well.
    I did pick up several pairs of cool socks to debut when I get back.

    Thanks! I have to admit, getting sized socks is a new luxury. Plus, these are especially attractive.

    1. What does OTC mean? Off The..?
    2. How do you get sized socks for yourself? I usually find.. "fits 8-12"
    3. How expensive are sized socks? I vouched to not spend too much on socks a long time ago, being OK with Polo and nearly anything sold at Nordstrom.

    Over The Calf.

    basically, very high socks. i find them very comfortable and they dont slip, but i find that some of my more tapered pants get caught up on the sock fabric of my upper calves (cuz im so mucscular) and it annoys the hell out of me. i end up folding down the socks.

    I felt that they were getting caught on my trousers also!

    Ah, but if you have luxurious, sleek material, your skinny pants won't catch on your OTC socks. Trust me, mine are performing flawlessly today :)
