Isn't that what everyone is looking for? After the initial sparks and chemistry die down, wouldn't you like to end up with a comfy pair of socks you can slip on and snuggle down on the couch with? That fit you perfectly, do the job, and last a lifetime...

Sometimes this is like shopping in Tesco's - you buy reduced items and wonder why you don't get the quality; you buy shiny new products that don't perform as well as you expected; you can buy packs of 5 pairs of socks, too, lol - one for every day of the week.

Then again, I always seem to lose socks in the washing...rolling on the floor laughing

But there are lots of sparks with polyester grin But you could be right about wool...the itching can be eased by a good conditioner.....rubbed in nightly innocent

buy those socks with high tog ratings, not cheap though, (E6 a pair) and buy all the same colour so when one goes to the sock 4th dimention (a far flung corner of the washing machine) or gets holed, you can 'mix em up'....

A regular change of socks is a good thing. No point in keeping old socks that are all baggy and saggy. In fact, why do we needs socks at all? A sock is just societies way of telling you that sandals aren't good enough, that all the freedom will be bad for you.

A lot of guys nowadays are relising they don't need socks. The socks don't like it very much.

There's nothing wrong with a nice wooly sock to keep your extremeties warm now and then. I wouldn't want them around all the time though. When I relax in the evening the socks had better be out in the utility room and not thinking they're getting on the sofa with me.

lol

Utility rooms have a tendency to lose socks.... you might find yourself lacking when you next need one.
