    Can anyone please recommend some extra-elasticated socks? I have tried various cheap and designer offerings and all prove to contain insufficient elastic to remain in place all day or just disintegrate after a few 30' washes. It would be great to hear if anyone is satisfied with their socks...

    I'm slowly improving my work wardrobe. The dress code is business casual - we rarely see a suit except from the c-suits. Given an outfit consisting of the following: light blue dress shirt with button down collar medium gray wool dress pants burgundy penny loafers (AE Patriot) matching belt...

    I've discovered that some users here swear by wool socks for hot weather. I'd like to try this myself, but I wonder: are they are talking about regular ribbed socks or about socks expressly made for hot weather from a thin wool fabric? If the latter is true, then I'm having an hard time in...

    I am aware of a couple of sources of well-made socks in extended sizes (13+), including those made by Pantherella and Byford. However, the selection appears to be extremely limited in style, color, and material. Does anyone know where I could find a nice XL sock in something other than the...

    Im at the dreaded age of 50. My wife and I are about to go on a cruise and she has put together a few outfits that she likes. One outfit consists of a pair of blue seersucker shorts along with a pair of white cable knit kneesocks and a navy cable knit v neck sweater. I'll be wearing a navy pair...

    Tired of explaining for the multi-thousandth time that men do not wear Knee-Highs, women should not patronize our Over-the-Calf pages, and there is no such sock as "The Short Kind", I have written a Definitive Guide to Sock and Hosiery Terminology. What is a Socquette? Have men ever worn...

    Hi All Andy and I got together and discussed how KJ Beckett (www.kjbeckett.com) could do a special offer for the AskAndy members... consequently we have come up with a secret sale exclusively for the AskAndy forum. We have added a selection of luxury accessories, all at 50% off, by Duchamp...

    Caveat Emptor Series: Cashmere Sock Quality by Alexander S. Kabbaz, Master Artisan Mainly from October to February, the word "Cashmere" evokes thoughts of incomparably soft luxury and cozy warmth in the mind of the consumer. As a gift, none is more universally, warmly received. The mindset...

    I found a thread from a few years ago in which a member wondered if he had too many fun socks. I had no idea that this is such a widely enjoyed addiction. Here are a few of mine. Anyone else want to share? Also, who makes good fun socks? I always just seem to pick mine up here and there as I...

    Hello Gents, Does anyone know where I can purchase over the calf socks in the UK that aren't ridiculously expensive? I've looked on the net, but not found anything. Thanks in advance.

    Browsing the Gentleman's Corner (), I came across a great new sock source. Happy Socks of Sweden. https://happysocks.com. They use a cotton blend from a Turkish factory that has produced military-grade socks. Combed cotton. In contrast to another AAAC find, Viccel socks, which focuses on...

    Who makes these socks? Press has not stocked for several seasons now. Thanks.

    First post guys so go easy on me. :icon_smile_big: I recently bought a pair of black Donald Pliner Rex - the only really nice pair of shoes that I own. I now realize that they make every pair of socks that I own look very cheap in comparison. Is there certain materials or textures that I...

    I read Andy say this : "Socks should match your trousers" However, I have also read from someone who has been in the rags (clothing) business for a long time say that ones socks should never be lighter in color than the sports coat or blazer one is wearing. So should one match ones socks to...

    I am just about fed up now with the inconsistency and lack of durability of Pantharella socks. Once they were consistently high quality but now I feel that is not the case. I really like Corgi socks and have been slowly changing over to them over the last few weeks and very pleased with the...

    I was just trying to find out some information on how long I can expect socks to last? Currently I use just standard Gold Toe socks since they seem to last awhile and are fairly economical. I was interested in a comparison between them and higher end socks like Marcolini or the like in terms...

    After going to about 10 stores (mostly big dept stores), I am utterly unable to find light gray socks. If anyone knows where to find some, I'd be eternally grateful. For reference, the color gray (and the color shoes) are basically the exact same as in this picture...

    Light gray suit and cognac shoes, assume a young guy at a fairly formal event--what color socks? Just match the pants as usual?
