“Activity” might be pretty broad in terms of what you’ll be doing — from hiking to brewery hopping — but these finely crafted Merino wool socks are made with comfort and moisture-wicking qualities — and they don’t look half-bad, either. Wear ‘em with jeans and a crewneck sweater, or team them with a cotton navy blazer, a chambray shirt, and tan chinos at the office.
