Interesting pants/socks divergence already. Explain yourselves.


#4

Went on a school trip once where I fell in the sea twice so had to dry my clothes on a radiator, ever since I have been cautious


#5

You never know what might happen!! As demonstrated above ^^


#6

My feet sweat more than my crotch.


#7

I like to have different sock thickness options too. You’ve been walking about all day in thin socks/tights, putting on some thick socks when you get in is like wearing slippers :blush:


#8

Good point. Going away in the UK at this time of year a range of sock thicknesses is essential.


#9

This is also important on a break. What if I’m strolling about a lot during the day then out for a fancy dinner at night? Different footwear requirements = different sock requirements.


#10

More likely to shit myself than to make a mess of my socks.

(Serious answer: if I’m going somewhere warm I might not need socks every day. But I’ll wear boxers every day)


#11

You people have a lot of sock… needs…


#12

Why would I need more pairs of pants than days? How often do you people shit yourselves?!


#13

Check your lack of IBS privilege


#14

Oh shit yeah, I forgot about house socks / walking socks. Epimer, can you please give a bit more information about the trip. Where am I staying? What is the temperature likely to be? Am I going to be required to do anything outdoorsy?


#15

I have IBS as it happens. It’s never required emergency underwear. Apologies to those who have it worse than me though.


#16

If it was hot or I was changing my clothes for the evening I’d definitely want to change my pants too.


#17

If you’re not changing socks and pants every day, you’re a rotter.


#18


#19

How many tights will you bring with you? I’d bring less than I would socks. I’m more willing to wear tights for more than one day if I have to, don’t tell anyone tho.


#20
  • Big suitcase that covers every eventuality but will be a pain to lug around
  • Tiny backpack
