Socks (common names are "sweat coat", "cheese") - short stockings that do not reach the knee. A paired fabric piece of clothing designed for human legs. Socks are usually made from cotton, wool, nylon, or synthetic fabrics. Socks can be knitted or crocheted, factory made or handmade. A lot of effort is put into making socks due to the fact that the material does not sew well.
The best colors of socks for a classic suit are dark blue, dark gray, dark green and black, that is, darker than the color of the suit. Also, socks are striped, checked, etc. However, it is better to wear them with sweatpants or jeans, since not all socks will go with a formal suit.
Socks are a trifle not worthy of attention. This is not so, especially if you like to sit with your legs crossed (it is in this position that you give the opportunity to others to get the most complete idea of how carefully you are about choosing some elements of your clothes). Remember: in order to make the best impression on the employer, boss and employees, your girlfriend and her parents (usually extremely attentive to details), you must carefully select all the details of your wardrobe, including socks. You should not stop your choice on socks of bright colors, multi-colored, with drawings or inscriptions (the symbols of sports companies are appropriate only in combination with a tracksuit or appropriate footwear).
The most comfortable socks are synthetic. These socks may be the cheapest, but hardly the most comfortable. After all, such socks do not absorb moisture well, causing a rather unpleasant odor from constantly sweating feet. These socks can also cause allergies, which are not conducive to a comfortable wearing experience. The most optimal socks are considered to be 5% elastane, no more than 20-25% polyamide and 70-75% cotton. They are the most durable, comfortable and not harmful to health.
Silk socks will fit any business suit! This opinion is wrong. Silk socks are worn only under a tailcoat; it is not customary to combine them with any other clothes.
All socks often have to be tightened, and if the elastic is too tight on the leg, unpleasant sensations are inevitable. To avoid this effect, look for socks with an anatomical elastic band (there should be a corresponding icon on the package). It is this (wide double) elastic band that is most convenient - it reliably holds the sock on the leg, while not leaving a mark or pinching the vessels.
I can wear socks of any height under a business suit. In fact, socks should be high, so that in the "foot to foot" position your interlocutor does not have the pleasure of contemplating your shin.
The color of the socks doesn't matter. The color of the socks must necessarily correspond to the general tone of the trousers (you can choose a tone lighter or darker), but be slightly lighter than the tone of the shoes. For a business suit, calm, neutral tones are recommended (by no means white!). Socks in brighter, more fun colors (and white in this case are also quite appropriate) go well with sportswear or leisure wear.
The color and condition of socks cannot characterize a man as a person. But you are mistaken - very much even possible! Representatives of the fairer sex are especially inclined to trust information about the color and condition of socks and certain character traits of men. So keep in mind that according to research:
- Socks of "cheerful" colors (polka-dot, checkered, diamond-shaped, overly bright) are preferred by a relaxed and very sociable man, somewhat inconsistent in his hobbies;
- Socks with an exotic pattern (dogs, elephants, snowmen, etc.) characterize a person who is indifferent to his appearance, who is accustomed to obeying his mother in everything, who prefers making important decisions to another person (most often to his mother or wife);
- Black (gray or brown) socks are most often preferred by a conservative who is either indifferent to his appearance (if the socks are too worn out or are worn with white shoes), or, on the contrary, is overly attentive to his image (if the socks are brand new);
- White socks are most often chosen by people who go in for sports (they can also give preference to socks with sports symbols), as well as some businessmen who want to prove to others that they have a refined taste;
- Red socks - such a man seems calm and balanced, but even a trifling reason can make him mad for a long time;
- Socks are scattered in different corners of the room - the man is sloppy and sloppy, not assembled and inattentive;
- Socks are tied in knots in pairs - in front of you is a hidden and slightly suspicious person. At the same time, this person always completes the work he has begun and values his time;
- Ironed socks are a sign of either "mama's boy" or a person who is overly tidy and clean.
The best socks are expensive. This is not entirely correct opinion. Sometimes domestic firms are quite capable of producing socks of good quality, appropriate type and at quite reasonable prices. The only difficulty is to find such a product in a supermarket among not quite high-quality or prohibitively expensive products of both domestic and foreign manufacturers.
Where I put my socks doesn't matter. Maybe if you are a convinced bachelor who never admits the presence of the fairer sex in your apartment. If you decide to start a romantic relationship, you will have to get out of the habit of sticking dirty socks anywhere, since they are one of the most annoying elements for a woman. Therefore, this item of your wardrobe, accidentally discovered by your darling in a battery, next to a TV, in a flower pot, in a gap between a wall and a sofa, under a mattress or under a pillow, may well cause, if not a break in relations, then at least a serious scandal. or an unpleasant conversation.
Socks can only be used for their intended purpose. As the experience of resourceful citizens shows, this is not entirely true. This garment has found widespread use in the country (as a material for tying tomatoes and plugging holes in the wall or floor), and some resourceful city dwellers use socks (and sometimes family pants) as a "safe" for storing savings and stash.
