Knee high, yep... Thick, yep... Unbelievably luxurious, yep...
I purchased two pair of socks at our local shoe shop this weekend. I had seen them once before while in the shop, but scoffed at the prices. Last week, riding by the shop on the way home I noticed a 'buy one get the second half off' sign. So hard to resist and so I indulged.
Socks aren't necessarily one of those items you look at and have fond memories of. Phrases like, 'remember that time...' don't usually come to mind. Thing is, I've got a couple of pairs of socks where these types of phrases do come to mind. I've got a couple of jerseys, and one sweater in particular, where these types of phrases come to mind.
Pieces of gear like this, are this grown man's blanket.
