    lol, ill have a look out sometime.


    thanks unbel, i am also a fran of the contrast ribbing, tho i dont think that was what N has in mind.

    im thinking of a soft, mid-weight wool or even cashmere, all navy, ribbed sock is what he meant.

    I'd call those socks more lightweight than midweight, but the others I linked are all navy.

    Howard Yount has great socks in tasteful patterns. Not sure if they have the exact ribbing you are looking for but it is a good way to build a collection. Dark, rich greens and maroons are great socks to have in the rotation. Look great with flannel for instance.

    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:
