I went into my local Sports Direct recently looking for their Dunlop work socks. The place doesn't seem to have any logic in their layout and, on the verge of giving up, I asked a very nice female where I might find them.

£7 for 5 pairs OR £11 for two packs. That's £1.10 a pair.

I've yet to use them but.......at that price.......... :dunno:

11p per toe (or just over 9p if you're from Norfolk) - what's the problem?

I pay £15:00 for two pairs of Bridgedale Liner socks, they're all I ever wear now, all the same colour, pick any two from the sock drawer.

Just invested in a pair of indestructables from HJ Hall made in Leicester remember having them for school as a kid. An alternative to the cheap stuff turned out in Datang (Sock City) which haven't lasted very long and the bits end up all over the carpet and in the washing machine
