in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

I like cheap, black, thick cotton crew socks all made by the same maker, Nike, and I buy them by the four-pack. Throw a few pairs in the washer and matching them back up is a cinch. One wears out, no problem, the odd sock still matches all the others. The drawback are the these black wads between my toes and then tracked on the carpet or in my sheets.

I asked my wife how women survive winter wearing only stockings. She said she wears two layers. I did not know that. I do that too with my socks in winter. Two socks on each foot keep my feet pretty warm.

I don't like those demi-socks which don't stretch much above the shoe. Be a man and put on some proper socks! ;)

I like brightly coloured socks and wear them in odd pairs.
