    Unfortunately, I've got drawers full of socks that are too large - with the heel of the sock falling up around my ankles. This is obviously very unsightly, and it's time they were all replaced.

    Any sources for reasonably priced, smaller socks? Cheers.

    Contact Falke. They make beautiful socks in lots of sizes.

    I wear a 7 and have had some luck finding various italian off brands in cotton and wool at TJ Maxx. Small-size polo, which I have found there, fits me well too. Since the price is low I tend to buy 10 or more when ever I find my size. It's not much help for high-quality patterns, but I've found nice solids (some 100% cashmere even; which I can only justify at discount given their short lifetimes).

    what do you mean by 'reasonably priced'?

    they sell dress socks at old navy in S, M, and L sizes.

    I wear size 7 shoes, and I find that Paul Smith socks I got from Saks fit my foot very well. Another option is to buy wool socks and put them in the dryer on high, they'll shrink a lot.

    Update:

    I have found socks by a company called "Kenzo," and they come in all sorts of sizes. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find OTC yet. I got a ton of the regular length though. They're pretty nice.

    I believe that Nordstrom sells sized dress socks.

    Yes. I'm a 7 but their socks marked sizes 8-10 fit me really well.
