I'm too conservative to sell mine. I put them in the dresser drawer for next Winter. And I drink year round.

Socks will rebound within the year. Shouldn’t you buy and hold?

You wouldn't want to sell all your socks yet in this part of the country.

Foolishness.

Nobody should own individual socks.

You need to buy an index of ALL the socks.

I'm keeping my Darn Good Socks. Other lesser quality socks may be sold or donated at a loss.

I'm buy and hold on to my socks. It's still February and where I am I'd freeze my assets off if not for good socks.

Some people buy high-priced socks like Thurlow. I am opposite. I am a value sock buyer. I buy cheap socks and throw them away often when they turn holey.

Who's right?

Do you still hang on to them after they turn holey?

I believe in rotating my socks. Out with the worn out ones, in with the new.

I buy value socks and invest in the darn things when they get holey. My investments usually pay dividends.

After 12 years of wearing each of my Thorlos 1-2 times per week, I finally have a hole in one of them and another has an unattractive "run", such as nylon stockings get sometimes.

Time to drop them in great panic and buy, buy, BUY!! Maybe I should horde Thorlos so that I can make it through a future economic collapse, should one occur.

Mine pay dividends. No blisters when wearing socks.

you know in some places it is appropriate to wear dark socks with sandals. So you should own appropriate socks this time of year... time to correct your allocation.

I have always been told that the proper thing to do is to Buy and Fold socks.
