The Philosockphy of Socks: What Your Sock of the Month Subscription Says about You


What do the socks you wear say about you? Some people say they’re making a statement, while others claim they’re just practical. The truth lies somewhere in the middle – don’t get us wrong, there are plenty of over-the-top patterns out there, but many sock designs have subtle meanings behind them that you might not realize. Let’s take a look at some of the most common socks on the market, and find out what their message might be – or at least how it affects those around them!


Philosophy, then psychology

People have always been in need of comfort and protection. In today's age, people are getting more wear out of their socks than ever before with sock subscription services popping up all over the country. But what does your sock choice say about you? A recent study found that people who subscribe to sock-of-the-month clubs tend to be adventurous and open minded, but also competitive and driven. Purple ankle socks are a favorite among these sock enthusiasts because they are both masculine and fun at the same time, which is a perfect combination for men who want to stand out from the crowd but aren't ready for something crazy like color dress socks.


What Do Other People Think?

Wearing socks is just one of those things that you never really think about, until it's pointed out to you. The first question people usually ask when they see me wearing a pair of fun and crazy socks is Why are you wearing those? To be honest, most people don't seem to care much for my sense of style. I'm not sure if it's because I'm older than most people who wear colorful socks or if they're just not interested in anything that doesn't fit their lifestyle. But, I've found that some people actually like what I have to say on the subject! They'll come up and tell me how cool they think my socks are and ask where they can get them too. They have an appreciation for fun colors and patterns.


What Will I Think About Myself in 5 Years?

In five years, I will be 50. I'll have a wife, two kids and a house with a yard. I'll be wearing dress socks most days because my feet will hurt too much to wear anything else. It's hard to say what my sock preferences will be then; all I know is that I'll need something warm and comfortable that doesn't make me feel like an old man.


What Do My Purchases say About Me

If you're a high-powered exec at a Fortune 500 company, they probably know your name and what you like to wear. If you're not, it can be tricky to figure out what someone's taste in clothes says about them when they're not buying their clothes themselves. But the truth is, your purchases say a lot about who you are and what's important to you. One way to tell is by what kind of socks you buy for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
