    What kind of socks are you digging? How many pairs do you keep? House, work, play? Any sock-related philosophy? How about socks as an auxiliary Christmas gift? Cool, uncool?

    I don't have a foot fetish so I wonder what kind of feet are considered sexy?

    I don't wear socks.

    If you have seen me talking about wearing socks on this forum before, that was my brother posting. He and I share my Sherdog account.

    I buy new socks frequently. Mini-crews mostly. There's something about a fresh pack of socks. And maybe that's a really boring thing to talk about, but still. I don't like dress socks or any kind of thin sock really. Instead of wearing dressy socks I usually just wear black crew socks. Since my feet have always been too wide for most regular makes of shoe, but not quite wide enough to be fully at home in most wides, the thicker socks are perfect for occasions when I would otherwise wear dress socks. This is all legit, I ran it by my lawyer, who is my brother and sometimes posts on this account.

    In extremely cold conditions, cotton kills. Avoid it at all cost. A nice pair of wool socks will save your toes from frostbite.

    Cotton only absorbs perspiration, so eventually you have a piece of cloth that's frozen into a solid sheet. Many a man has died from wearing cotton clothing in Sub-Zero temperature.

    Trust me, buy more socks instead. There's something big about to go down. That's all I can say.

    Bought socks today, actually, thick warm comfortable ones. It's colder than a witch's tit.

    Edit: whoever posted this must not have read the previous sock-related posts. It must have been my brother using my account.

    Merino is great for undergarments but heavier wools are fine and way more likely to be affordable without being blends. (My gifted dress "merino wool socks" are actually only ~30% wool.).
