@illo59

I'm curious how the Stance socks will hold up over time. They had a few in the past that I really wanted to buy -- Tommy Guerrero, Lance Mountain, A Tribe Called Quest, etc., but I read somewhere that some of their socks are paper thin.

Can't speak for all their socks, but I have one pair, and they're pretty thick.  They've held up reasonably well, but I'm not especially hard on socks, so that's not much of a statement.

@illo59 Slayer merchandise should be off-kilter. I love them.

@gaseousclay they have many different models, some are thin, some are thicker. The have running and hiking socks as well. I buy them wen they are on sale and have different kinds. They all hold up good and fit well and comfy. I wouldn't wear the thinner ones with boots.

@neph93 Damn right haha - But the decoration is some kind of photo print what looks pretty odd and not like good quality when stretched. Can't really recommend them - but these are made for fun so i guess it's acceptable and they're comfy though.

I understand your point but the big picture is, you have Slayer socks  8)

@Chris

So what's the verdict on your socks? I like my alpaca hat a lot but i've found that it's not ideal when the temps hit 0 because of the way it's knit. It's plenty warm though in 20-30 degree temps

First time wearing them (they got lost in a moving box for a while).  So far, I'd say they're decent.  They're thin, since they're dress socks, and they don't stay up, but socks never do on me unless they're over the calf length.  But they're comfortable and they don't have bulky toe seams, which is good.  I'll need to get in several more wears before I can give more than initial impressions.

I have similar thoughts about the beanie as you do.  The loose knit isn't perfect for really cold temperatures, and I bet it would suck in a strong wind, but since I never experience anything below freezing, it's fine for me.  It itches more than I'd like, so I'm a bit disappointed about that.  Most people probably wouldn't notice it, but being bald means a lot more skin surface area, so I'm especially sensitive to that aspect.

My beanie is itchy too. Fits a little bigger than i'd like as well but it works.

Did anybody else love MUJI recycled yarn socks? They were so fucking cheap, comfy, and overall good. Only gripe was that they were a little short, but I dealt with it.

Now it seems they're gone. If you too are mourning this loss, have you found an alternative?
