I’m not all that sure I do much that falls under the heading of general country sports. But I am a big fan of excellent socks. And these (sized for both ladies and gentlemen, because everyone needs a good sock) fit the bill quite nicely. They’re thick enough to be comfy on a long hike (or curled up at home in front of the fire, I won’t tell), and the cables are delightfully dramatic.
