    Mens 100% black cotton socks - where to buy 10th May 18 at 10:19 PM
    My needs are seemingly very simple - plain good quality socks for business use - for a reasonable price.

    I find now that many shops advertise as cotton only to find after clicking through that they are `cotton rich` instead.

    It seems you either have to buy top end with prices to match or else compromise on quality.

    Any ideas please?

    Thank you. I saw most of those and there were not many reviews/some poor reviews so was not greatly inspired. I did buy some from Amazon previously and they were rubbish.

    The John Lewis ones only have one bad review.

    There are lots available if you google 100% cotton mens socks
