Sock of the Month Subscriptions: How to Match Your Socks With a Tie">sock of the month Subscriptions: How to Match Your Socks With a Tie

There are three things that every man needs to keep him stylish, but most men forget them on the daily: accessories, attire, and shoes. When you have those in check, you’re going to look like a million bucks no matter what you throw on. But if there’s one overlooked accessory that can really make or break your outfit, it’s your socks.

Some History

Philosockphy is an emerging fashion subculture that mixes socks and ties. Although many might believe that matching your socks and tie is just a personal preference, Philoclothiers (those who wear sock-and-tie combos) argue that there are actual guidelines for choosing which color goes with what kind of tie. For example, if you have a navy suit with green striped socks, then it would be appropriate to wear either a brown or red tie. However, if you have a blue suit with yellow striped socks, it's best to wear either black or purple. It can take some time getting used to these guidelines but once you get the hang of them they make dressing in the morning much easier!

The Rules

I don't know how I used to get dressed before Philosockphy. Now, I can't imagine my life without it. It has saved me from countless mornings where I have given up on putting anything together because there was no rhyme or reason for what I put on.

There are just three simple rules for matching your socks with your tie and this philosophy is guaranteed to work every time:

- Choose two colors that go well together, they could be two different shades of the same color or two colors that contrast nicely with each other.

- As long as one of those colors is dark, you can use any color combination you want and it will work out just fine.

- Tie with a bow if you're feeling fancy!

Things to Consider

If you're looking for an easy way to match your socks with a tie, there are many subscription boxes that make it easy for you. You can find these boxes online or in stores. One of the best options is Philosockphy, which is based out of New York City and creates monthly sock and tie packages that come with six pairs of socks and two ties. The company also offers three-, six-, and twelve-month subscriptions so you can get discounts on more pairs of socks!

If you're not interested in getting a monthly subscription, there are plenty of other ways to find matching socks and ties without as much hassle. First, try shopping at stores that carry matching items together. For instance, Macy's carries both men's clothing and women's clothing together by gender.


If you're trying to figure out how to match your socks with a tie, there's no need to worry. There are tons of ways for you to do this. Here are some ideas for getting started:

- If you're in a hurry, wear two different color socks and pair them with any tie. It's simple and easy!

- When it comes to matching colors, keep in mind that blacks go with black ties and browns go with brown ties. Reds go well with reds or burgundies while blues will look great against navy or gray.
