    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cold enough for socks; cold enough for a vest:

    Back in the real world, Stitchy, check out Sierra Trading Post for the name brands at a discount or even Lands End for cottons and wools. Their wools aren't super durable, but they are cheap. The heavy cottons they sell this time of year I actually prefer to the wool, anyway, and they've held up very well for me.

    I'm torn here, Ed, I must confess. While, on the one hand it's pretty baller to kop by the dozen, it's kinda small-timer to be a sale shopper. :confused:

    That's my annual spending on clothes... but besides BC socks, I also buy a tie. Or even two. Seasonality, you know...

    I believe Stitchy has found the resolution to this tawdry business. Let us never speak of it again.

    I have seen some nice socks here:

    http://grunwald-true-style.com/Over-the-Calf-Socks.html

    I have not tried them myself though. I mostly use pantherella now, and I have also just bought some very warm OTC socks with alpaca here:

    http://www.ahume.co.uk/product.asp?...&strPageHistory=search&numSearchStartRecord=1

    There are other colours and shorter lengths as well. I hope they are durable, and I will use them as boot socks when it's freezing.

    thanks for all the links to ribbed navy socks, guys. lots of great stuff. all things considered i think some of the the ones from STP will work the best for my getting a few pair of ribbed navy socks.

    NOBD - dont get too excited buddy, i liek exciting socks, this will not be a navy takeover, just an addition. sorry broseph.
