Socks are socks. But, in my older age, I'd rather start looking better with my clothing as my looks are starting to run. I do really like the old-schoolish looks of these Spectrum Crew Socks and the sizing is pretty much as stated.
I must be getting spoiled however as the cotton factor made me cringe a bit. Also, a bit thicker of a weave so don't wear these in warm to hot conditions.
