2 Which types of socks should i pre­pare for When trav­el­ing to a sub-trop­i­cal Des­ti­na­tion Dur­ing Win­ter?

DA MAN - Style - - Style Faq -

there are a lot of fac­tors that you might want to look into when pick­ing a new pair of socks, from thick­ness to spe­cial­ized ver­sions for hik­ing and so on. these, how­ever, tend to vary greatly from brand to brand. if there’s one rel­a­tively reli­able method to choose socks, it would be ma­te­rial: • Cot­ton: Com­fort­able and in­ex­pen­sive, but ill-suited for ac­tive use (it ab­sorbs sweat

just fine, but takes ages to dry). • Merino wool: Com­fort­able in both warm and cold weather, of­fers su­pe­rior cush­ion­ing

and less itch­ing (com­pared to stan­dard wool), but is rather ex­pen­sive. • Syn­thet­ics: Has su­pe­rior mois­ture-wick­ing qual­i­ties, but tends to be un­com­fort­able in

hot weather—es­pe­cially if you tend to sweat a lot. • Silk: Ex­cel­lent mois­ture-wick­ing abil­i­ties, light­weight and in­cred­i­bly soft. Of course,

silk stocks are also in­cred­i­bly ex­pen­sive.
