    I can easily buy packs of only black or only white socks, heck even only beige ones, but the grey ones always come assorted with other colors! Grey goes with everything... where can I find them?!

    edit: I mainly want ankle socks for the gym. White and black stand out too much.

    Which shade? There are at least 50 Shades of Grey.

    Those socks got me wondering, maybe it's because he's searching for gray; women have changed how colors are named. It's no longer light green, now it's celery; maroon or burgundy is passé, now it's merlot; pale teal, nope, sea foam green.

    So instead the incredibly unoriginal, boring, but descriptive name gray, instead search for silver, pewter, dove, rocket ("Rocket is cool medium grey with subtle undertones of blue and lavender. With hints of steel and slate, Rocket is darker than Whisker, but still works as a wonderful neutral on its own or paired with brighter shades for a bold look."), whisker ("Whisker is a cool light gray color."), etc.
