    Not really stupid, I wear Thor-Lo only. They are the best, a little $$ but well worth it. Try a pair, you will like them.

    ThorLo's are great but a tad on the expensive side. I try to use only acrylic socks. They stay soft wash after wash and they don't seem to hold the grass stains as much as cotton. They also seem cooler.<p>Ed

    I started wearing dark dress socks.It may look a little strange, but it beats going through tons of white socks year end and year out.

    I get lo-cut white socks. Yes they turn green. So what? I designate 7-8 pr. for work, so that I have some that stay white for out in public, shopping, etc. (off the clock use)<br>As long as I'm working they'll get green at the tops again- that's what they're for. Never had anyone complain yet :)<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>

    Bad socks that keep falling down in my boots. I have to try some of those high $$ socks. I like grass sticking to them, its a little green reminder to everyone in the house that I am making money.
