Socks were worn 2 days each pair and I wore the same t-shirt for two days at a time.
So now, I am getting another pair of the Exofficio's and that will be all the underwear I need. I just need to find a good pair of socks now.
I can wear a pair of jeans for a month or so, no worries

I always wear my underwear 1 week. Then turn it inside out and wear it 1 week more...

That's very clean... I wear mine every day, and give them the stick test.
I throw them against a wall and if they stick I turn them inside out, then on the forth rotation they are not only inside out but back to front!

Back to front another week, then inside out and back to front for another week.

+1 on the smartwool. Watch the REI site, you can usually find some on sale or in the outlet section

Well, to me, packing lite is everything. I have Wolfman Expedition panniers and a Trax top box so as I sort everything out I am finding I need room for camping gear. I really don't want to travel looking like the Clampet's on the Beverly Hillbillys. The only thing I want in a duffle is my tent.

Smartwool are nice and I have a few of their shirts that I love, but I've found Darn Tough to be much, much more durable for socks. If they're primarily riding socks, it's probably not a big deal, but when walking a lot, my Darn Tough socks have lasted at least 3X longer than Smartwools.

+1 for the darn tough socks. I am very hard on socks and generally blow through them very quickly (14 hour days with heavy boots walking on concrete). The smartwool are generally more comfortable but for the difference in how long they last I will stick with darntough. This is based off trying tons if different socks and brands. If there is one think I enjoy spending money, its quality socks.

As for the underwear, I wear both the exofficio and under armor everyday alternating throughout the week. Basically the only underwear I own. Multiple of each. All day comfort I love my boxer shorts from under armor and will choose them for day trips anytime. As for extended wearing periods the exofficio wins hands down for staying fresher, and more comfortable longer. Both great underwear and excellent quality but depends on what I'm doing for when I wear them.

I own UnderArmor shirts and they get rank. That's just not what these guys are looking for.
Washed every day, I have not had problems. I have issues wearing clothes more than once without washing them my whole life.
I guess an early life of presumed colonial ease and sensibilities living in southern Africa must have developed that....
Or maybe just living and traveling in hot climates...

The material is different to the shirts I have. They do cling a bit more, but that is part of the comfort / support thing, as they are not cut to fit slightly loose like the ExOfficios are.

Dry Max...

socks from Mario at LDComfort. He has them in tall boot length and in shorter, more like a normal sock length.

They're the best sock I've worn for riding, I wear them with Sidi boots and they stop the chafing of the boot on my legs that exists if I'm not wearing a pair of his LDComfort tights.

I also wear the shorter version at work with a pair of Eco boots, they also work great, keep the feet dry and comfortable.

He also offers an inmate discount, find him in the Vendors area.

His LDComfort underwear is the best thing since sliced bread to wear under your riding gear too.
