Best affordable sock brands for work

Can anyone recommend some good comfortable sock brands for work? Need to restock as most of the ones that I currently own are worn out.

I am looking for dark/black sock brands that are really comfortable + help you feel less pain when you are trying to break into new dress shoes for work

Depends on what you think is affordable, but my sock draw is very large (x-mas presents , mostly) and pretty diverse in terms of quality. Its weird that you do actually notice the difference between high and low quality socks quite a lot when sat down all day. My favorite 2 brands to wear are Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, they just feel so much nicer to wear. The Ralph ones werent too expensive, 3 pairs for 15ish

When I worked in RE some douchebag former rich kid RE agent who couldn't afford his old lifestyle and had to start buying clothes at Costco told me that VK Nagrani makes the best socks money can buy

Thanks, let me know if you ever need an introduction in the industry.

I wear size 13 shoes, and always had trouble finding over-the-calf socks that fit my feet. I finally found Nordstrom Men's Shop, which offers XL that fits 13-15. Not cheap at $14.50/pr, but they get the job done.
