I have two pet peeves when it comes to socks. First, I hate to have to pull them up during the course of the day. Second, I don't like skin showing if I cross my legs. The first pet peeve rules out most other socks that I have tried, and the second pet peeve rules out short socks. These socks are long, they almost come up to my knees. I'd prefer to have a mid-calf design, but that's not a huge concern. The upside is that these socks stay up. Period. At the end of my work day, they're still where they were when I put them on in the morning. I've laundered them about a dozen times now, and they still stay up all day long. They're also long enough where I don't have to worry about showing skin. Thanks, dad, for passing that phobia on to me. These have become my new favorite sock and all the others have gotten pushed to the back of the sock drawer. I plan to order several more pairs, and these will be my only socks.
December 5th: Unlike some of my other socks, these are not too tight at the calf and are not uncomfortable at the end of the day. And I don't have red marks on my calves from the socks being too tight. Even after repeated washings, they still stay up all day and they seem to be wearing well. I just ordered more, and these will be the only dress socks in my sock drawer.
