It's time for a little a tough love on a soft subject: You've probably been abusing your socks.
Not intentionally, of course, but still. Socks aren't cheap, high quality ones, especially. (Even with an employee discount, ahem.) And yet socks have it rougher than almost any other item in our wardrobe, partly because we walk on them all day long (ya think?).
O.K., our title's a little misleading. We haven't exactly solved one of life's great mysteries, namely where all the missing socks in the world go. But we did unearth a few facts about the problem, which seems to peak right about now, just when the weather turns Fallish and we all head back to schools and work and attempt to locate the remnants of our elusive hosiery.
