    Simple, medium gray, wool socks?

    I used to get simple, solid, medium gray, mid-calf, wool dress socks from Nordstromís Calibrate brand. I need a few more pairs for work. Unfortunately colors seem to be seasonal. Right now they only have neon blue and bright cherry red.

    Iíve been looking for somewhere else to get what I need. However it seems that most places that make nice wool dress socks only make their grays in darker charcoals, or with stripes and argyle patterns of other colors woven in. Those options wonít work for me. I just want no-nonsense, solid, medium gray.

    Does anybody know of a trusted brand that I can find this from?

    while medium gray means different things to different people, this may be a start. Nordstrom still has wool dress socks in a host of gray shades, 3 for $30.

    I saw those too but theyíre charcoal, which is too dark. Thanks though!

    I've been very happy with the Muji socks I picked up in NY last time I was there. I think they've got a grey that should work. They're a nice medium weight, and pretty cheap.

    Now if only they'd open a store in the midwest... (although are avialable online)

    They have grey heather and charcoal, but the heather may still be darker than youíre looking for. I like them so far, but have only had them for a few months so I canít comment on longevity.

    I have 4 pairs of Gammarelli socks from them on the way now. Wonderful selection of colors., available in 100% cotton or merino wool.

    I like the ones from Tyrwhitt. Be advised that they are a little on the short side of mid calf.
