    Update after numerous washings of the Darn Tough, Style # 1940 - Mountaineering Micro Crew Extra Cushion:

    These socks needed a little "break-in", at least for me.
    The toe-seam is on the inside; and quite large, due to the thickness.
    It was very irritating on my toes.

    After numerous washings, this has improved considerably.

    As expected they are wearing like iron ! ! !
    Overall, better than I expected. Still wearing them frequently !

    I love Darn Tough, but I bought a pair of Farm To Feet last summer because they are merino wool and have trees on them (https://www.farmtofeet.com/collecti...lle_trees_mid_weight_crew?variant=11026494789), and they are my favorite pair by a wide margin. No seem on the toe and they're very cushiony, have been great in Philly winters and are awesome in the Florida summer I'm working in now. I will be investing in more. I wish I had either kind when I was in the army.

    Thanks for the tip. The farmtofleet socks look very interesting. I'm going to check them out.
    I much prefer a heavy weight, and after some searching, they make in several crew length.

    If there's one on the doorknob, return to the bar and have two more beers before coming back home....
