Socks As An Inexpensive Way To Demonstrate Your Superiority

MIL-STD-11-18-2013

Loud camouflage socks:

Nice-Laundry-Camouflage-Socks

$40 over at Nice Laundry.

At the end of the day isn’t that #menswear life all about quietly announcing to other guys how superior you are, as often as possible?  If some ways happen to be inexpensive, then great.  Sure $40 per pair of socks isn’t cheap if you’re used to buying Costco 12-packs.  How many socks do you really need though?  I suppose the first question should be how often do you do laundry?  If you do laundry once a week, and want a bit of a buffer then 10 pairs of socks would probably do it.  I don’t have a specific laundry schedule, so I have like 30+ pairs and have even bought more instead of doing laundry.  I was actually thinking that I needed some nicer socks a while ago, so I’ll probably add at least a pair of these to my drawer.  Good to have on hand when you know you’re going to be chilling out in public, casually throwing an ankle onto your opposite knee where your denim raises up causing the sock to peek out.   Random people are not likely going to tell you how great your socks are, but when you catch them doing a sideways glance then quickly looking away you can chalk it up as a win.
