I love Smartwool. My sock drawer is full, and I have several tops made from them as well. These dress socks perform every bit as well as their running, hiking, and snowboarding socks. If you have a white-collar job to pay for your down and dirty pursuits, I definitely recommend Smartwool's dress sock line. They keep the hogs cool and dry. Don't tell Mom, but you can actually wear them two days in a row without turning off the ladies with your funky blue cheese.
