Puzzle - Hint

I have a drawer full of socks. There are 40 socks of each colour, brown and grey, evenly mixed.

In the morning, when it is very dark, I need to pull out a pair of socks of the same colour.

How many must I pull out of the drawer to ensure that I have at least one pair of matching socks?

Hint: The answer is a lot less than 40.
