UNIQURO socks are alright.

Marks and Spencer are probably better though.

for a considerable amount of time I've wanted marled-looking socks like these

Image

but those are j.crew camp socks and they're too thick for me to wear with sneakers pretty much ever.

I'm wearing a pair of these american apparel socks rn though. they're alright, nice and thin but haven't torn anywhere yet.

Image

what's the best solid color of socks to wear?

White mountaineering for 50% off everywhere end of season Is literally impossible not to purchase.

My LLbean merinos that came yesterday are somehow itchy.

Icebreaker is really worth the $$

tired of the whole ~unique~ socks thing.

however, chup

and white mountaineering do it right imo

chup runs a little small though.

maybe when it gets closer to f/w, we can persuade @hirokinakamura to head a grangecraft group buy

primarni socks have never let me down. "cheap and cheerful" epitomised.

i quite enjoyed my funky onlyny socks but they fell apart pretty quickly.

Best cheap socks are Smartwool irregulars at LL Bean outlets for dirt cheap.

I have these from J. Crew. I like the design but the quality is pretty poor and they aren't the most comfortable.

thin wool socks are all i really need all year long, tho some nice thick socks are pretty nice too.

People Socks are extraordinarily nice for their sale prices (5 bucks a pair).

Uniqlo socks are good when you can get them for a dollar/pair.

@Heckawheel @Oucho Quality is mediocre and they're women's but they may be found here :-)

Edit: never mind! They do have men's pairs!

i spend too much time thinking about socks

where to buy fun (colourful, plain), cheap (under 10€) and warm socks?

are heattech socks warm and do they come in other colourways than 50 shades of grey? doesn't seem like it on the website.

I'll gladly prove you wrong @exprof -

Kirkland trail sock. Merino wool blend, 4 pairs for $11.99. Yes, merino wool socks cheaper than Uniqlo socks.
Thank you, Costco.

Don't, they're not worth the price. I bought 5 pairs and they're my least favourite socks to wear. they get loose/pill really quick.
