    Wool Dress Socks

    I have VERY sweaty feet. Fortunately, the solution is easy - Merino wool blend dress socks (like the calf high ones Joe recommends https://dappered.com/2019/04/what-i-...ed-dressed-up/). But those are boring as hell! So I bought a pair from Darn Tough (https://darntough.com/collections/me...nt=30180612359), whose socks I usually LOVE. Unfortunately, for some reason, I find this particular style really uncomfortable. They are weirdly tight at the front where my leg meets my foot. So the search continues.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for where I can find similar Merino wool blend socks that have a little character to them? Not looking for something covered in eggplant emojis, but I want something with a little color/design that makes em smile when I put them on. Want to keep in under $20/pair.

    I've picked up most of mine from Skolyx. They're a Swedish site, so not quite the same as ordering from someplace like Amazon. That said, ordering was very simple (used PayPal) and the shipment arrived within a matter of days. Their socks are 78% wool and made in Italy. They're all the same ribbed style (not much variety), though they do have lots of different colors. The socks are around $19 US each, though if you buy 10 or more the price is cut in half. I bought some last year (hitting the 10+ threshold) and they averaged something like $8 or $9. Very happy with the quality.

    I've ordered a bunch from Viccel, but they are in Turkey so it takes awhile to get your order (I think my last on was a couple weeks). Their website looks a bit archaic but they are legit and I know some other member have purchased from them before. They carry some 70% merino/30% silk OTC socks that are nice. Check out the "Textured" or "Two tone " section if you want something more fun, they have some nice houndstooth and herringbone patterns.

    I've never ordered from Pantherella, but they also have some new pattern wool socks on their site. They are on the more expensive end but I've heard they are some of the best.

    Dapper Classics is another I've heard of but haven't tried. Theirs look like their 70% Merino/29% Nylon/1% Spandex. They have lots of funky colors/designs.
