Just realized theyre only available in navy now. When I ordered, they were black.
I ordered black ones. When I ordered it, it said "limited stock available."

Had the same issue. These last much longer in my experience.
Not sure how to add dd affiliate link.
https://www.amazon.com/Dickies-Multi-Pack-Dri-Tech-Moisture-Control/dp/B004QF0TFQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?crid=37SEXC09RMECE&keywords=socks&qid=1643217248&sprefix=so%2Caps%2C148&sr=8-3

Typical scamazon, these are "Multipack" with some "colors" a 6-pack and some a 12-pack. If you're checking out other colors make sure you take note of the qty as well.

Exgingi would recommend gold toe, or silver toe. Not sure if they make platinum or palladium toe.

For years I would buy Joseph A Bank Ultra Cushion socks. I like over the calf socks and those were very comfortable. Alas I think they are discontinued. I have been searching for alternatives. I  currently wear Hanes.

Some other alternatives I've researched but didn't buy due to sticker shock are Mack Weldon and Bombas.

There was also another highly recommended brand, but I passed on them since they are German who literally took over a Jewish factory (bought at bargain price) whrn the owners were sent to concentration camps.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Speak for yourself!

IME gold toe don't last long (and aren't necessarily the most comfortable).

I did read good things about Dickies, but I don't think they have over the calf cushioned socks.

Proposal:

We all chip in and buy YitzyS a selection of the various socks brands/types recommended in this thread. In exchange we get a daily review from YitzyS with pictures (odors not necessary, thank you). Once YitzyS has reviewed them all,  he will provide a summary: Ranking the socks on various metrics and offering recommendations for various sock-wearer profiles.

Amazon seems to have some, e.g. these:
Dickies Men's Light Comfort Compression Over-the-calf Socks https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GXN3HW5/

About 6 years ago there was a huge sale on dressy black 100% cotton gold toe socks from a random website for $1 each. I bought a ton and they lasted till today with no holes. only issue is the color is no longer black as its faded over the years. but im super impressed with the quality. however, gold toe has so many lines with varying quality. also not so cheap
this?

I like the proposal but not the strings attached. I charge $250 an hour for writing. I think I'm getting underpaid if I accept. Unless you include the platinum and gold toe...

Nobody said you'd be getting the better end of the bargain. Your writing is entertaining, not willing to pay that much to hear you reviewing socks :P
