Usually, socks are socks, and there's not much else to say. Unless you are in need of some of those high performance things that wick moisture, or provide padding for hiking or whatever, there's not much to a pair of socks that you need for every day use. Stance socks, these and most others they make are a bit different though for me at least. They don't sweat up in summer heat, they don't wear out, not very quickly at least, and they come in some of the most unique prints and styles out there. Really great stuff with these ones.

If you haven't tried stance underwears before, you really should. Great material, fit, quality, everything you would look for to go under your jeans. These have the added benefit of looking amazing for when you get the chance to take them off, and even if you don't, you know in the back of your mind throughout the day that you've got the virgin mother under your jeans, or chino's, or shorts, or whatever it is that you are rocking.

It seems like every company is making a classic looking, solid colored henley, which is awesome because it's a great look. This one from Dakota Grizzly caught my eye because it was fairly inexpensive, but once I got it I was sold on it for many more reasons than that. Material is the right weight, the fit is on point. Only warning I would give is you definitely want to hang dry it. I've had two of these, and the first one I dried at too high of head and it shrunk up pretty good, but give it some low heat or a hang dry and you won't have the same issue I did.

Looking for a hoody, it was hard for me to find something that didn't have a big logo or obnoxious print on it, but I was glad I finally found this one by Roark. Nice solid color with a classic look. It's thick enough that makes me feel like it's not going to rip if I fall off my bike, but not so thick that I sweat in it on a reasonably cool evening. Fits true to size for me.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 165 lbs
Size Purchased: L

This shirt initially seemed a little more itchy than most of my merino stuff, but after a wash or two it has gotten better. Size appears fine to me, I'm 6'0" 165 lbs and got a large. I like my shirts a tad looser anyway, but this one fits well.
