Socking It to the Philosockphy: How to Choose the Perfect Pair of Socks


How do you find the perfect pair of socks? That’s what I wanted to know when I started Philosockphy, and it seems like no one has ever answered that question with any confidence before. So, I decided to make up my own answer, and based on my experience running the most popular sock subscription service in the world, here are some tips on how to choose the right pair of socks!


The Basics

Mens socks are a great way to add some color or fun to your outfit. But, with all the choices out there, how do you know which ones will work best for you? Here's a rundown on some key things to consider when buying mens socks.
1) Do you want light-colored socks or dark-colored socks? 2) Do you want dress socks or casual crew socks? 3) What size shoe do you wear and what length is your inseam?


The Fit

Fit socks are a great gift for men. They come in a variety of styles, colors, and materials and make a perfect stocking stuffer! Fit socks come in some crazy color combos like pink with mint green or black with orange. They also have dress socks that look like crazy colorful ribbons. Some people may think that it is weird for men to wear funky socks but not everyone wants plain boring gray ones. You can find cool crew socks that match your favorite shirt or crazy color dress socks that coordinate with your favorite suit. If you want funny gifts, they have those too; they have fun mens ankle socks and fun mens funky dress socks!


What They Are Made Of

There are three main materials used in sock manufacturing - synthetic, wool, and cotton. Wool is considered a natural fiber that is often blended with other fabrics for maximum durability. Cotton socks, on the other hand, offer breathability and a soft feel. Synthetic socks are typically made from nylon or polyester, though some brands use acrylics or even spandex for stretchiness. The material you choose will depend largely on your personal preference as well as what feels most comfortable against your skin.


Color & Pattern Combinations

The easiest way to find a great pair of socks is by experimenting with color and pattern combinations. For example, if you're looking for a fun pair of ankle socks, try pairing them with some fun dress socks or cool crew socks. Experimenting with color and patterns is always a great way to find your perfect pair!


Materials We Avoid At All Costs

We avoid any socks that are not 100% cotton, as synthetic materials like acrylic can cause skin issues. We also steer clear of socks that have seams, as these cause extra friction and discomfort when worn. Finally, we refuse to use any socks with a rubber heel, as this material can cause blisters and make your feet sweat.
In order for our socks to feel durable and last a while, they need to be made from high-quality materials. The best sock subscription is one that provides you with high-quality materials without compromising on style or comfort!
