Duluth Trading Company’s 7-Year Performance Lightweight Socks

A friend recently told methat there are two signsyoure getting older. One,you start noticing birdbehavior. Two, a good pair of socks becomes worth its weightin gold. I know hes right about thesecond point because I had just boughta dozen different pairs of crew socksand tested which performed the best.

For starters, I wore them all a coupletimes and eliminated the ones thatwere too hot, didnt stay up, were hardto put on or just didnt feel good. Next,I randomly wore the remaining sixpairs to see which ones held up thebest over several washings and wearings.I didnt keep a record of howmany times I wore each one; I just triedto mix it up as best I could. Fortunately, the pair that outlastedall the others was also the most comfortable.

The clear winner was DuluthTrading Companys 7-YearPerformance Lightweight socks.Unfortunately, at about $18 a pair, theywere among the most expensive Itested. But they were still cheaper thangold, so I bought a bunch more atduluthtrading.com. Now if I can justget those pesky blue jays to stop chasingall my robins away.
