7 Things Your Socks Reveal About You

7 Things Your Socks Reveal About You

Most people would consider socks to be one of the most under-appreciated clothing items out there, but you don’t have to be part of that majority anymore! With the launch of Philosockphy, a brand new sock subscription service, it’s time to finally start paying attention to your socks, and let them do all the talking for you. Whether you want them to reveal your personality, your style or even your life philosophy, these 7 things your socks tell people about you will help you choose what you wear each day with pride and confidence!

1) Does your sock color say something about you?

If you’re always wearing black socks, it’s probably because you care about your style. But maybe there are just a lot of opportunities to wear them! If you don’t want to spend a lot of time matching your outfit with your sock, we say stick with simple socks that go with everything. Whether it's a brand like Stance or a more classic look from Ralph Lauren, these basics won't steer you wrong. And while plain ol' black is always good, we have plenty of colorful options if you're looking for something fun! Even if socks aren't going to be your main accessory, they still make a statement that tells people what kind of guy (or gal) you are—and that says something about who you are too.

2) Do you subscribe to Philosockphy.com/collections/socks-club">sock of the month clubs?

In today’s age, we are all on a mission to look our best, smell our best and be as fashionable as possible. As men, our clothes say a lot about us. What kind of socks do you wear? Do you subscribe to Philosockphy.com/collections/socks-club">sock of the month clubs? Are your socks professional or fun loving? Do you have a signature pair of socks for special occasions? All of these questions play into your Philosockphy—or philosophy about what you wear. Maybe you don’t even think about it at all... but one thing is for sure: your feet can tell people much more than just how tall you are! On average, we spend 33% of every day walking—so show off your personality and philosophy with what's underfoot.

3) How much thought do you put into your socks choices?

Some people think carefully about what socks they wear each day; it’s practically a philosophical decision. Others don’t spend any time at all deliberating and just grab whatever is clean in their drawer that matches their outfit. The socks you wear say something about your personality and how much thought you put into your choices. Are you one to have a backup plan or do you always go with something different? Regardless of how careful you are, most people have strong feelings about what kinds of socks they like to wear and don’t like to wear, which can be fun to discuss with friends. It's also very common for businesses these days to offer sock subscriptions as an incentive or promotional gift!

4) Are you shopping for your first pair of niche socks, or are you an expert looking for more socks inspiration?

For those new to niche socks, it can be difficult to figure out where to start. When buying your first pair of socks online, consider looking for a subscription service. The Philosockphy.com/collections/socks-club">sock of the month club is an easy way to get your feet wet with unique fabrics and patterns – no pun intended! If you are already a sock-of-the-month subscriber, see if there is a way you can incorporate more unique pairs into your wardrobe. And if you are already shopping for niche socks online with success, see if there’s anything new out there that could fit into your collection.

5) Do you often wear socks from women's brands as well as men's brands?

If you wear both men's and women's socks, then you likely understand and appreciate both masculine and feminine points of view. While your socks may not say a lot about your taste in fashion, they do indicate that you're open to people of different backgrounds, just like men's and women's brands. This can be good or bad depending on how you want to present yourself at work. If you think it will help your career prospects to fit in with others or make friends more easily, then go for it! But if your goal is to stand out from everyone else in a particular setting—say, a sports team—then select gender-specific socks based on what makes sense for that situation.

6) Have you joined a sock subscription club before? If so, which one(s)?

I am a member of 3 different sock clubs. Philosockphy, Sock it to Me, and Man Crates. With Philosockphy I get to pick from 5 pairs of socks each month that are focused on self improvement and motivation. The socks tend to be light gray or white so they aren't too flashy for work but you can pair them with sneakers or sandals on casual Friday at work.

7) How does your sock style affect your outlook on life (your Philosockphy)?

The socks you wear send a message. But what is it? The best way to find out is to analyze your sock-subscription choices and find out what they say about you. It’s time to discover your sock philosophy: which socks are more aligned with which seasons of life? Let’s take a look at 7 possible ways that your socks affect your outlook on life
