Black socks

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone bother wearing these horrible things? The OG socks were OK, but when they went to black the 'quality' seemed to drop. I think the material must have been different as they seemed to shrink a little first time I washed them (never happened with socks OG) and I find I cant wear team anyway as they make my feet and legs itch too much and seem to aggravate the skin!
    I usually wear my desert socks instead as does just about everyone else I know. They are much more comforatble even in cold weather. They should make them in black too and issue them instead. (I have a few pairs of thorlos too, usually saves for tabs).
  2. Same here. I've worn the dessy ones for years now. Much better than either the OG or black or Artic IMO. The only trouble is the colour (although my sartorial advisor has thus far failed to mention them to me).
