Sock of the Month: What Your Tie Says About You, According to Socks

sock of the month: What Your Tie Says About You, According to Socks

What do your tie, belt, and socks say about you? You might be surprised—the things that adorn your lower body can actually reveal what’s going on in your head. If you’re looking to boost your shoe game or just want to wear something comfortable every day, you’ll want to get the most out of your sock subscription. To help, we’ve compiled a list of notable tie and sock combinations that reveal what’s going on in the minds of today’s business professionals...

The Tie & Shirt

Each month, $10 buys you a tie made by Philosockphy (they're hand-knotted in Peru and come in all sorts of colors and patterns) as well as a shirt from one of five different fashion lines. Each month's combo is centered around a theme that ties back to an existing menswear brand (think Jack Spade or Trunk Club). The shirts tend to range from $60-$100, while each month's tie is priced at $50. All subscription options include free shipping and returns. A pre-paid plan lets you skip deliveries every other month if you want—great for weddings and busy seasons. Early adopters can also get a 10% discount on their first shipment with promo code BIG IDEA10 at checkout.

The Suit

If you’re currently in possession of a business suit and you want some new socks (because you can never have too many socks), then check out Philosockphy. There are no hard and fast rules for what makes a great pair of dress socks—they all come down to personal preference—but an easy shortcut is anything with fine ribbing or a subtle dot pattern. Go with light blue or gray, since these colors will complement just about any color your suit; reds and pinks are also good options if you really want to put your personality on display. Be warned that patterned socks are probably not appropriate for wear with suits—stick with solids for best results.

The Sweater Vest

The more colors you have in your sweater vest, and particularly your necktie, says that you're a man who likes diversity. Sure enough, socks subscriptions provide just that -- plenty of colors. And sock subscription companies with large collections enable men to choose from literally thousands of colors (and designs) when picking out their monthly shipments. So if you see a guy walking around with an orange necktie and red sock collection...ask him about his tie collection for his socks! He might be an introvert! But there's no way he'll pass up talking about his favorite clothing accessories.
