Philosockphy: The perfect way to match your socks with a tie

How many of you have matching socks and ties? If you’re like most people, the answer is zero. Many men don’t realize how easy it can be to match your socks with your tie—they just need to put some thought into it ahead of time. One way to avoid forgetting this critical style step (and save you from having to buy expensive duplicate items) is to subscribe to a sock of the month service, such as Philosockphy.

Why it matters

The perfect outfit starts with the right sock and tie pairing. From dress socks and ankle socks to crazy, colorful dress socks and cool mens socks, there are so many options! With all of these choices, it can be difficult deciding on just one pair.

It's important for men to have fun socks for those days when they don't feel like wearing anything serious. Fun men's ankle socks or cool mens socks are a great option for when you want to add something different and unexpected to an outfit. crazy color dress socks or colorful dress socks are ideal for those days where you just want something really eye catching!

Combining patterns

You might be thinking that matching socks with ties is all about matching colors. But there's so much more than that! If you have three colors of sock, you can mix and match them in a number of ways. This is one of the most common patterns, called coordinating.

A slightly more complex pattern could be called opposing which pairs up two colors on each side. With this pattern, it's best to keep the color on one side lighter and the color on the other side darker. So if you're wearing black and blue socks, you might wear blue shoes with a light shirt and black pants. Another option would be brown shoes and khaki pants.

When they don't match

When you wear mismatched socks, it will not only make you feel like an imposter, but also look unattractive. It's the little details that count and it takes just as much effort to put on matching socks as it does for other more noticeable items of clothing. If you're going for a fun but professional look, then we recommend wearing colorful socks and pairing them with formal shoes or pants. However if you're going for a more laid-back style, we recommend wearing ankle length mens purple socks or colorfully patterned dress socks. A sock subscription is the best way to ensure that you always have access to fresh and fashionable socks in all sorts of styles every month!

Tips on pattern combinations

For an awesome, understated look, pair mens purple ankle socks with a grey or black suit. For the office, match mens colourful socks with dress pants and loafers. Keep it casual by wearing mens colorful ankle socks and sneakers for the afternoon at home or out for errands. For warmer weather, try pairing fun dress socks or cool socks for men with shorts and boat shoes. Bring on the color! A great pattern combo is matching mens colorful sock subscription (coolest sock of the month club) with a pastel button down shirt, chinos, and boat shoes. It's not as hard as you think - just find something you like in both departments (socks and ties) that go well together!
