    You say they're almost OTC... are they long enough to say up through a day of wear or do they fall down?

    If they were 100% OTC I'd be all over them. But I'm not sure about "almost OTC"...


    They fall down. I have about 15 pair. Sad, because they are quite fun.

    Went out and grabbed a couple pairs, our target had a pretty full stock of them with at least five in every style. They were also running the Merona boxers on sale for 2 for $2.24 so a grabbed a few pairs of them. All in all a pretty good haul for under 30 bucks.

    That sounds kind of "South" for a Brooklyn boy, scruff...

    You know, I usually turn my nose up at Merona every time I'm in a Target. But then I remember that I'm the sort of dude who shops at Target.

    Brosef, when you have 700 shirts and 400 pairs you're not buying things for practicality. You just have a problem [​IMG]

    Yeah, so... where exactly do you store 400+ pairs of socks and 700+ shirts?

    Seriously. The 400 socks strikes me as perhaps more ridiculous in some ways, but the 700 shirts seems harder to fathom. I can at least imagine being able to store 400 pairs of socks in a bunch of boxes or something. But 700 shirts? Do you convert several rooms of the house into walk-in closets in order to make that happen?

    I think Osprey has posted pics of large plastic storage boxes filled with socks. Not sure about the shirts.

    Groovy. Not judging the guy, btw. I am pushing 300 ties right now, which is about 280 more than I wear in active rotation. So I know the feeling.

    I just hope none of you bastards have hit the particular Target in Chicago I'm targeting (bad pun not intended) for a visit later today. I plan to get there and clean house, assuming any of the stock is still left.

    Went to the Target by my job and picked up a couple more of the designs I missed: [​IMG] I've bought 20 pairs total for about $55. Not bad, I usually pay $8-$12 for a pair. myke

    Was this a one time sale or something? Went by Target last night and didn't see any $2.50 socks...ones that were left were regular price.
