Buying cheap socks in bulk online ?

Similar to the underwear thread, anyone ever ordered generic socks online in a bulk for cheap from China ?

I don't see why I should pay 10$ for two pairs at Simons when they probly pay them 1,23$ each.

Let's find a good socks supplier :)
I was there at the 32$ price error at dell.ca day AND at the 150$ off price error at fs.ca

Yes, I'm interested also. I'd like to buy some to donate to homeless shelters. Don't mind buying quantity.

In my RL job I got an offer for new socks (40,000lbs), 15% women's, all normal sizes for $.25/pair delivered to my customer in America. Obv there's a difference in pricing based upon quality and whatnot, but you'd be surprised by the margins. Printed t-shirts are $2/piece items.

How many can be expected in the 40,000lbs.

For the record, I'm not selling, i was just commenting on the margins that the OP was talking about. You'd need a forklift to unload anyway.

For these suppliers their min quantity is like 20,000lbs (20" container). I think 3 pairs are a pound.

haha by bulk I meant something like 10-20 pairs.

They're such a ripoff in stores i'm sure there's cheaper alternatives.

Found this site : http://www.socks4life.com/
Result : NOPE, they charge ~30$ for shipping with USPS to Quebec, ridiculous.

I buy packs of 10 at WalMart for $20 if I'm not mistaken. Happy with that price, not really worth hunting down for more of a discount
