I have never used the polypro because it is supposed to retain odor and cannot be washed in hot water. I don't know about the blends though. Polypropalene is supposed to be really warm too.

Dress socks will offer the same properties as expensive liner socks.

There are all kinds of socks available. I bought black nylon/polyester dress socks to try this year as liner socks. They worked as good as my polypro liner socks and stayed up a lot better.

This is the point I was making. Most dress socks are not made from cotton, casual maybe, but not dress.

I let my boots do the insulating not my socks. I think a lot of guys go crazy with heavy thick sock and they can become quite the detriment trying to keep your feet warm when you need to jam your foot into a boot. IMO less is more when it comes to socks.

Loggy, I read the reviews and one guy said they are made a little on the small side. I wear a 13 or 14 EE, should I get the XL or XXL?
