The Surprising Meaning of the Socks You Wear Every Day


Using the socks subscription service sock of the month, I polled men and women about the socks they wear every day and what that choice says about them. Sure enough, some of the results were surprising! After reading these sock wearing facts, you’ll never look at your feet (or at someone else’s feet) in quite the same way again.


Do you love your socks?

We all have our favorite items that we wear every day, and socks are no exception! If you're looking for cool socks for men, then you've come to the right place. Here at Funky Socks Club we have a huge selection of fun socks for guys. We offer funky mens ankle socks, colorful socks for men, and so much more. It's never too late to buy some cool new sock or get some funky dress socks as a gift for someone else - just in time for summer!


Are you hiding behind a pair of socks?

People wear socks every day, but often they don't think about what they're really saying with their choices. Some people wear ankle socks to hide themselves from the world, while others choose ankle socks as a way to stand out. There are also those who want to fit in, and go for dress socks or crew socks. And for those who want to make a statement, there are crazy color dress socks and best sock subscription services that will deliver a new pair every month.


Is there a story behind your favorite sock-pair?

I love socks. I wear them every day, and it's not uncommon for me to have more than ten pairs on hand at all times. My favorite pair is a pair of purple ankle-length socks that my wife bought me for Father's Day last year. These socks are great, because they go with everything, including formal occasions like weddings or funerals, but they're also pretty funky and fun. They're just perfect for a guy who likes to have fun when he can--or at least who doesn't mind looking a little goofy if necessary!


Do you have an invisible pair under your shoes?

You may not realize it, but your socks have a lot to say about you. If you're wearing a pair of plain black socks, chances are you're a conservative dresser and prefer comfort over style. If your socks are patterned or brightly-colored, then you're probably a little more daring with your outfits and looking for something that will make an impact. For example, if you wear purple ankle socks with pink polka dots, then people will know that you like to look good and have fun at the same time.
We'll always have our favorite pair of socks hanging around on our feet (they never slip off!), but sometimes we need some fresh new kicks in order to give out old ones some rest.


How many socks is too much sock-action (or lack thereof)?

I was always taught to dress appropriately for any occasion, which is why I never ventured into wearing purple socks with a suit. But as society has progressed and loosened its sartorial standards, it seems more acceptable to show off one's personality through their sock selection. What does this mean for you? Probably not much unless you're interested in attracting attention. That said, I have noticed an interesting trend: men are becoming more inclined to wear fun socks and even colorful ankle socks with dress pants or suits - and it's all too easy to see why. Menswear stores like J.Crew now offer an awesome sock club as a subscription service, where they send out a new pair of fun mens socks every month!
