Hosiery, also referred to as legwear, describes garments worn directly on the feet and legs.  This category includes socks.

A sock is an item of clothing worn on the feet and often covering the ankle and some part of the calf.  They are typically worn under a pair of men's shoes or men's boots.  One of the primary roles of socks is absorbing perspiration. They also provide comfort, warmth, and a sense of style.  Socks can be created from a wide variety of materials. Some of these materials are cotton, wool, nylon, acrylic, polyester, olefins, (such as polypropylene), or spandex. To get an increased level of softness other materials that might be used during the process can be silk, bamboo, linen, cashmere, or mohair.

Clothing designers have an endless variety of colors to choose from when designing socks.  It is simply a matter of dying yarns to the desired color shade.  The color variety of sock choices can be any color that the designers intend to make the sock upon its creation.  Sometimes artistic design is put onto socks to increase their appearance.  An example being novelty socks.  Novelty socks are often colorful, fun, and interesting.

Here are a few basic rules of thumb to consider when wearing socks:

  • When wearing business attire your socks should match your pants.
  • Don't wear white sports socks with a tuxedo.
  • Keep in mind rules are often meant to be broken.

Socks are manufactured in a variety of lengths. Their are many different types of socks available in the menswear market.  In general their are three primary lengths of socks.  low-cut, ankle, and knee-length.  However, their are actually many different varieties of size.

Athletic socks are often produced with a support band around the arch and are made with fabrics to help wick away moisture.  They come in a wide variety of styles including no-show, low-cut, quarter length, crew length, and tube socks.

A business sock or dress sock is a term for a colored sock for conservative appearance and casual footwear. The term is often used loosely to indicate a term for a conservative office setting. For instance, business socks, business shirts and business shoes are used for office and job. They are typically over the calf length or mid-calf length.  Argyle pattern socks are OK.
