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) Pairing socks to match an outfit

While getting dressed in the morning, most people just grab whatever pair of socks is lying around and put them on. Others prefer to carefully choose their socks so that they match their outfit in some way. The latter group is known as sock-and-sandal enthusiasts (or more affectionately, Philosockphy lovers), who believe that pairing appropriate socks with an outfit can give it a personalized touch and make it more stylish overall. If you’re looking for a fun way to show off your fashion sense while also enjoying personalization, subscription sock clubs are worth checking out!

2) The sock subscription business

If you’re currently not convinced that socks are worthy of analysis, consider a subscription service. Monthly sock of the month clubs and other sock subscription services can range from practical to philosophical—but they all provide users with a pleasant diversion, while also giving them a great reason to shop. Philosockphy, for example, is both an online business that sells luxury socks and a community in which members can share their views on life’s big questions. The beauty of such programs is that you could easily offer promotions through them (like discount coupons) and drive new traffic to your existing business as a result.

3) Philosophies behind different sock subscriptions

A different company will have a different philosophy behind their sock-of-the-month subscription service. Some subscriptions focus on having high quality socks. Other companies might focus on creating socks that look great with your favorite dress shoes, or match your personality or style. Determine what you value in a pair of socks and then find a subscription service that matches those values. Take fashion, for example: Look at several different sock of the month services and write down why you think they are each awesome. Now rank them from 1 to 3 based on how excited you'd be about getting new pairs in each month as part of your sock subscription!

4) Do you wear white socks with sneakers?

There’s no need to shy away from color or style. If you want to wear white socks with sneakers, go ahead! That just means you’re not afraid to express yourself and it shows that you’re confident enough in your fashion choices that you don’t have to worry about what others think. From a philosophical perspective, wearing white socks with sneakers is a reminder that we should allow ourselves more creativity and freedom in our everyday lives; take some time for yourself to do something different every day and embrace it as an opportunity for growth. Live your life by your own rules!

5) Cute, colorful socks are great for everyday wear

We all know that socks are important for keeping our feet warm and cozy, but they can also make us feel cute, confident and motivated. Cute socks are fun and playful—so wear them with whatever you want! Whether you’re heading to work or going out for a night on the town, add a little something to your outfit by showing off your unique style. The right socks can be a great conversation starter at work or when meeting new people at social events. Try wearing a themed pair of socks as an icebreaker. For example, if it’s Halloween time, wear these orange pumpkin-shaped knee-highs with other fall patterns like acorns or scarecrows—or go sporty with some athletic-themed crew socks in blue and yellow!

6) Sock subscriptions can be worn as part of a larger personal uniform

Form and function are related, but not synonymous. Philosockphy defines an individual’s style in addition to their personal identity. A sock subscription provides men with a consistent appearance that they may not otherwise have time to create on their own. An individual’s sock uniform could be part of a larger philosophy or code, particularly if it is selected by choice as opposed to circumstance. Every day presents new opportunities for individuals to express themselves; each decision impacts their overall philosophy, even in small ways.

7) Invest in good quality cashmere socks.

For warm feet, these socks won’t let you down. Cashmere does a wonderful job of wicking moisture away from your feet and keeping them warm in winter, so even if you find cashmere not to be cozy during summer months (the temperature variance is too extreme), it will work great for those bone-chilling winters. Cashmere socks are also known to last longer than cotton socks, making them more economical than they appear at first glance. Just remember to air dry your cashmere socks; dryers can often shrink woolen fabrics over time. Then package them up and make them look nice with care instructions on how to wash and care for your sock of the month pair!
