Socks 101: Bringing Soxy Back


Socks have been for a long time one of the most utilitarian of all male wardrobe options. If you open most guys’ sock drawers you will find black, brown, and perhaps a white pair left from the 80’s if he was around then. But that has changed. Colorful fun socks are making a big comeback. But it’s not only in casual settings. Fun and colorful socks are being paired up with traditional gray and navy suits to add a splash of color and energy to the old stable of men’s business wardrobe.

The colorful socks are reaching beyond the trendy, like the Biebster. Jenna Bush Hagen interviewed her grandfather, George H. Bush, on his 88th birthday and talked about his love of colorful socks. “I’ve always been a sock man,” he said. You can watch the segment here.

What is your take on pairing bright socks with business suits?

  • Adam

    I am for it. I always have my eye out for a good pair of flashy sock. Also they are easy to pair when it is time for laundry!

  • Dale Hart

    David Letteman has been wearing light socks with dark suits for years. Looks great, especially with the right shoes. Can’t convince my wife, though.

    • Dale,
      Sometimes you have to go out there, but a pair of fun socks and just wear them, regardless of what the wife says. She’ll come around, or not, but it’s your style and not hers. I bet you don’t tell her what dresses not to buy. 🙂
