No Nonsense[edit]

Is "No Nonsense" a well-known brand? Does it deserve its place in this template? Antique Rose 03:15, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

It's as common as L'eggs on US drugstore and supermarket shelves. Daniel Case 14:28, 1 May 2007 (UTC)


The image is way too big. It looks grossy out of place on, for example, the Tabi article, which is about traditional Japanese footwear. Exploding Boy 16:45, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

I agree. It looks out of place on the sock article too. Could we get a smaller and more neutral image? It used to have this image - image:Pile_of_pantyhose.jpg - which while not perfect, doesn't have the same distraction quality of the current image. -- SiobhanHansa 09:36, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
I liked it so much more too ... I thought it conveyed the appearance of a pile of socks perfectly. Here's the discussion that led me to keep the current image, if you want to understand what I was thinking. But if there's a separate consensus emerging for another image, or the original image, let's do it. Daniel Case 13:43, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Additional items[edit]

and/or some definitions: Over-the-Calf (OTC) / Executive Mid-calf / Crew (don't exceed largest part of the calf) Quarter / Anklets (cover the ankle bone) Ped (touch bottom of ankle) FYIY, I've never heard this term before Liner (don't show above the shoe) No Show (hide inside the shoe)

Also, you're missing Sandal socks (ninja socks) aka: the oldest known type of socks.

If you'd like, start an article on it. Daniel Case (talk) 13:58, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Also, the socks article doesn't have this template :P
