here it is!

a thread about socks

where do you buy socks? how much do you spend on socks?


do you rotate your sock wardrobe fro different seasons??

This is a well-timed thread for me as I am looking to upgrade my socks (and pants) over the course of the upcoming weekend ahead of a number of trips.

i was just realising that all my favourite socks are too heavy for the coming summer season

need some #summersocks

M&S are the only ones that really fit properly (size 13) so there or occasionally Asos. I like a striped or similarly jauntily patterned sock without descending into novelty. Cheers.

I think I’m alright for #summersocks but my collection of #standardsocks is in complete disarray

I buy two types of socks (all black)

  • trainer socks from decathlon
  • standard socks from tezzas

No matter how many I buy they always seem to disappear :woman_shrugging:

I do not distinguish between seasons

Get quite excited at getting some new socks. Obviously my Breakfast Socks revelation has made me curious as to what other outlandish sock combos I can do in future.

my whole life i’d always just buy whatever was cheapest, but have very slowly snuck a few #premiumsocks into the rotation and it’s such a treat when they come up i feel like i should treat socks more seriously

my favs are some heavy m&s ones but they’re a bit too heavy for right now hence the thread

got some Hiking Sock Chat i can also deploy at some point ITT

Work socks: John Lewis, the ones that are black with the coloured toes and heels.

Personal socks: usually get some on sale at Fat Face whenever I’m in an airport, weirdly. Means I can get multiple pairs with sharks, penguins etc on them for about £3 each.

Anyone else refuse to recognise the concept of matching socks

I get mine from h&m. I always buy ones where each pair looks different because i don’t like mixing up pairs, so most of mine are black with a stripe around the top. They get thrown out when the heel starts to wear through

Fancy socks are probably the only garment I enjoy buying.


I tend to go to TK Maxx

3x categories of socks for me (not including bike socks)

thick/ boot socks

regular socks

short socks for wearing with shorts

I have several socks missing a pair right now which is distressing for me - I do all my own washing and live in a small flat. WHERE THE FUCK DID THEY GO???

On Saturday my sister became the second of my (two) sisters to betray me by marrying a Liverpool fan so what I did was make sure that I wore some socks that had Eric Cantona on them for the ceremony.


have done it out of necessity / sleep deprivation induced confusion

I’m gradually branching out into less boring socks and have a pair with dinosaurs and a pair with unicorns

When I do 5 a side I have to wear very thick socks because thin socks, twinned with a lot of sprinting and turning, leads me on a one way trip to blistertown

Tempted to throw away all my socks and buy twenty pairs of the exact same socks. Really good ones. Consolidate my sock game in my thirties.


I buy crazy socks so that people know I’m a zany guy!


HATE trainer socks with a burning passion. they don’t stay up!

think i bought some socks from h&m once and they turned out to be trainer socks by accident. never going to risk it again.
