    Hogg's woollen socks from the local farmer's shop. Keep your feet warm but they're £6 a pair. Atm I'm wearing a pair of long navy fishermans's socks which I got from a charity shop for 50 p, pretty comfortable :).

    That's a great name for a sock, isn't it?

    -Tell me, what sort of socks are you wearing?
    - Why I'm wearing Musto Evolution Technicals.
    - Is that all? I'm wearing √úbermensch Survival Of the Fittests myself.
    - Yeah, my Eugenic Triumph Of The Wills are in the wash.

    If Scottish blokes are all totally in touch with their feminine side that's perfectly cool with me.

    If you like them let me know and I'll check what price they are at the farmers shop next time I'm in Forfar. Might be cheaper than getting them online.

    Cheers. They certainly look very very comfy from the pic. I went for the 75% wool ones.

    I like them a lot, thank you. Very very comfy indeed. I'll give you a shout if I need some more. Only minor criticism is that their large (size 7-11) is a bit little. I'm a 9.5 normally and these fit me snugly. If I had size 11 feet they'd be too small, I bet. But very nice socks other than that, lots of padding round the soles and ankles and what-have-you.

    I've never met any but I think it's because Scottish people are Hobbit-like, dwarvenfolk.

    I like Uniqlo knee-length heat tech socks in the winter. Must stock up before they disappear.

    My goat socks are still good after all this time. Don't think I've ever found such hard wearing socks before.

    Hoggs of Fife are going to be casually dropped into conversation at every opportunity in the run-up to Xmas, I think.
