Currently Viewing Dickies Work Clothes: I went with some Happy Socks and JCrew, and have no regrets. Gives enough information to help look for socks but doesn't say one type is better than all the others. If they hit their stretch goal, then you get 7 pairs! Best way to pick out socks in that early AM scramble is to have them sorted by their colors already. Grays, blues, tans, blacks. Then colors and colorful patterns if you have them. Shoeboxes work really well as bins on the shelves in your closet.
Sharpie or make a label on the boxes too, makes everything easier. Then put a small cedar block in each shoebox. Those can be found in the home organization aisle of hardware stores, and probably at shoe stores too. I know for certain you can get an 8 pack of them at Lowes for about 4 dollars. So you are going to wear some navy pants, then pull a pair of socks from the blue bin. Earth tone chino pants? Get a pair from the tan bin. Pick some gray socks!
Or delve into that colorful bin if you are not dressing for something formal. So I'm a size shoe, usually Most large socks are shoe sizes I make do but as in most of my wardrobe, the sizing is not ideal. What are all you other guys with water-skis for feet doing for socks? I'm a 14, and I gotta say, finding properly fitting socks is essential, at least for dress socks. Trying to shove your foot into a too small sock will destroy the elastic almost instantly, and stretch it out to the point where it won't look good, especially if it's a thinner sock.
I know Banana Republic has larger socks. There's also the dreaded Casual Male XL They had plenty of large sizes at Nordstrom, and I raided them during the June sale last year. Also, I've been wearing these and liking them on the feet though there's a tocuh tight around my large calf.
I'm thinking over-the-calf socks are even more important with oversized feet, since normal ones just don't stay up.
I usually go to the Nordstrom Rack instead of Nordstrom proper, but the Rack seems to have a pretty limited selection of styles in large sizes. Is regular Nordstrom better about that? Fuck I have the same problem. I feel so limited, I just wear Nike Black socks or these grey ones always. Because I picked up some [white] jockey brand socks and so far they are awesome, they have held their shape however, i do not own a drier anymore, so that could be part of it. I wish someone would have told me the white socks fad was over whenever it ended.
I'm a dude, I'm robotically designed to buy whatever brand I bought when I was It really depends on how much your feet sweat. Mine sweat very little and I love my cotton socks. IMO, the wool-socks-only attitude is overblown and many people wear them without getting damp, smelly feet. For some reason I need some extreme heat to get my feet sweating. I like my wool socks for their elasticity and warmth, but I wouldn't throw out my cotton socks for general use either.
Due to the design of my desk, there is a small gap at the front where people can see my feet. I always remove my shoes when I am at my desk which means people can see my socks when they walk into my office. I started wearing over the top garish socks, but the rest of me is button down starched corporate perfection.
For daily wear, I use UnderArmor no-shows almost exclusively. They're amazing socks - moisture wicking, highly elastic, incredibly comfy and they keep me from getting blisters. They suck in the cold though, so wool when it's cold or for more dressy occasions.
Are you talking about these? Because those will most definitely show when wearing boat shoes, plimsolls, etc. Basically, though I have some that are lower cut and don't have the obnoxious underarmor lettering around the top rim. But on a serious note, this is a fantastic guide. I entirely second the wool recommendation, and want to add that in my experience, wool socks especially the hand-knit variety- thanks mom! I tend to get monocoloured socks from Uniqlo that I wear with my everyday clothes, generally I'll wear the red socks with navy blue trousers.
I see bamboo socks a fair bit and I didn't see them mentioned as a material anywhere. I've heard that it has good moisture wicking, is softer than most wools, and helps a bit with odor control. To be honest I have no idea if that's just something they printed on the sock label or was actually true though. It's also supposed to be 'green' which I guess vs. I had a sentence in an early draft, mentioning bamboo.
But it was trimmed for brevity, and because I couldn't do justice to the topic in a single sentence. See Bamboo textiles - wikipedia for much good info. Look for "bamboo linen" if you're trying to be green, because "bamboo rayon" mayormaynot be made with a chemically intensive process. I have a pair of socks that has some quantity of something bamboo in them, and whilst they're very soft, they're way too tight on my ankles, so I can't use them as a good yardstick.
They're extremely soft, quite thick and very comfortable. When do people actually see your socks throughout the day? When I'm standing my pants cover them entirely and my feet are always under a desk when I'm sitting. When you cross your leg, all nonchalantly. When you sit back, all crispy [fixed]. When slinging lines onto paper. When you climb stairs. When in a friend's home. Are there any resources out there for custom made socks?
I've scoured the interwebs and cannot seem to find anything that I like. Porcelain socks from Tsocktsarina and Shark socks from Tsocktsarina Ignore the imitators both impressed me.
But I'm guessing you probably meant custom-made normal socks, possibly for non-standard sizing, or similar. Although I don't feel like my feet are a strange size, I simply cannot find a pair of socks I like. They probably wouldn't look good on you. Maybe on her , though So I have a condition in my legs called Lymphedema , which basically means I have to wear knee-high compression socks in order to keep swelling down. I have a mild case however, so I can usually wear them at night and get them down to normal, and then last for a good portion of the day before swelling is noticeable.
I'm wondering if there are any sort of more fashionable compression sock options, or knee-high socks? I love wearing more funky socks, but they usually leave weird indents on my legs because of my swelling. What you wear is limited only by the environment ie if you live somewhere hot, then you can't really layer too much. Thanks, I appreciate the help!
I know I have certain guidelines when it comes to the socks, but I shall talk to my doctor about it. Thank you once again! As a man who wears boots everyday, I can not stress enough the importance of clean socks and keeping your feet dry. That is one way you can damage your feet and it keeps fungus away. For people who's feet sweat, use baby powder and you'll have fresh dry feet and dry socks. The drying time isn't where the effort and added fuss comes in though.
It's the act of hanging them that's tedious not the time spent waiting for them to dry. I can't speak for how your home is set up, but it takes me about a minute to throw all my socks on my drying rack. It's not a huge timesink. A lay-flat rack for the bathtub. Perfect for winter wool sweaters, and assorted other items.
Ladies have a lot of delicate clothing, and will appreciate you having one around. DO NOT get one of those horrible folding monstrosities especially a cheap one. They're aggravating to set-up, and are useless for lay-flat items like sweaters.
Can you Amazon link to the one in the picture? Or one that you have? I've started collecting more expensive underwear and soon socks and I want to make sure they last. So far I've just been kind of hanging my shit anywhere I can in my apartment. And those are the keywords you need, when asking in local stores, to buy locally, because: I've started to hang dry new pairs of dress socks I buy.
I cant stand worn out elastic and my socks falling around my calves. I wear a suit everyday, and bending down to fix my socks is just annoying. My older socks and all my athletic socks go right in the dryer, and soon i'll be sockless for everything besides work anyway. If you lived in the UK, you'd most likely not own a dryer - yes, you'd hang dry them Paul Smith, really soft and good fit.
Tried to find them online but couldnt. They are a dark blue on one side, lighter shade of a dark blue on the other with grey toe. The two sides are connected on top by a green seam and the bottom with an orange seam. I've never understood the downvoting cadre on reddit. There are tons of good posts and comments that get downvoted to oblivion. That said, the original single sentence did potentially come across as boasting, primarily because you didn't give any context as to why you spent so much.
If you'd linked to source, or given a review, or added an image, that might've helped. I want to use some Gold Bond foot powder for my espadrilles, can I do this and how often should I apply it? My feet sweat abnormal amounts, gold bond becomes this weird grainy paste if I use it in shoes with which I go sockless. I wear navy boot socks maybe not quite boot socks, but they are way thicker than my normal dress socks, less so than my boot socks.
Is anyone really going to know? They are so much more comfortable. I live in California and am interested in going Californian but the word only appears once on the page and the word "white" appears only twice and not in specific reference to going Californian. Please explain this obvious high form of fashion.
I broke down and ordered a bunch of pairs of socks last night to fill out my non-white sock collection. This is coming from somebody that mismatches socks pretty frequently though When I put away my socks after washing, I pair them up and turn them inside-out together, so that they stay together, and in the mornings I can just pull one object out of my drawer and be guaranteed a matched pair.
Have you considered that? This isn't fashion related but work related. I wear these boots to work everyday but mine are 12 inch instead of The wicking of wool sounds awesome but all of the wool socks I am looking at seem to be for winter.
Where can I find long wool socks that won't roast my feet? Do you have a source for the "cotton sucks for socks" info? I mean one that isn't a post in reddit. I don't doubt that you're right, I'd just like to get a second opinion.
I'll tone that section down, later. Sadly, for those of us with small size 6. Maybe it's just me, but when wearing jeans and sneakers like vans or something, I think ankle high white socks are just fine. In fact, I think dark socks in that instance just look weird and tryhard.
Same with shorts and sneakers for that matter. Some people prefer wool to other fabrics, and though wool is used many times for warmth, it also has superior wicking properties. After reading this article , and this , and this , I started biking in the summer in wool tee-shirts and it's been pretty great. I've also been switching socks over to wool, even summer socks. I've been meaning to ask about mfa about what kind of socks to start buying Kind of sick of wearing athletic socks with the big logos at my ankles.
I absolutely cannot wear boat shoes no matter what, without socks, without getting blisters on my heels. The no show socks look like they would be perfect for that. Anyone have any recommendations for good quality ones? Anyone have a source for some thinner wool blend socks?
I have a pair of shoes that fit perfectly in thin socks, but I need that woolly goodness in my life. In the summertime, I will wear them with khaki shorts and a tshirt So I will likely go without socks, but in the winter, I never know what socks look good with dark blue jeans and a tshirt. Any suggestions for style, color and material would be appreciated.
Contemplated it, but that would leave everyone with certain images in their head, throughout the thread Plus, I assumed a pun subthread would naturally spawn, and didn't want to remove any ammunition Given the Jesuit vow of poverty, I would think Francis eschews them.

You're clearly in need of a better cat. Is wearing socks with slides a complete no no going for an athletic look? Socks, slides, basketball shorts, and a tee. They're a type of sandal, or flipflop. Therefore, socks with sandals therefore, complete no. Super late to party but wanted to clarify. Sliders and sandals are an established and accepted look for athletes. It's the easiest option pre or post gym shoe because it requires no removal of the sock.

Be careful with cotton: Cotton is less durable, and less springy once compressed, compared to wool. This has led to the opinion that Cotton sucks for socks. Keep this in mind, and you'll be fine. An addition of x can add good properties to the material elasticity, durability, etc.
