A Pretty Face
Journeyman said:The time has come for me to look for new pairs of socks.
For the past seven or so years, I've been wearing Uniqlo (for casual outfits) and Marcoliani (for dressier outfits) socks. However, all of my Marcoliani pairs are about to reach the end of their working lives, and will be reassigned to use as cleaning or shoe-polishing rags.
How long have you had your socks for? Where have they worn out, please give details.
Journeyman said:So, any suggestions? Uniqlo is fine for plain colours, so I'm nore interested in socks with small, subtle patterns such as birdseye, mini-herringone, mini-houndstooth check and similar patterns.
Would people recommend Viccel? I'm sure that they used to be quite a bit cheaper but, then again, I think that the last time I looked at the Viccel website was about seven years ago.
Any other brands? Any good vendors?
Viccel silk/wool are nice socks to wear, very comfortable and much better than cotton sox. I think you should try a few pairs.
