Socks Show Whether You Care

  1. 1. Socks Show Whether You Care<br />By Purple Eagle, Dress Sense Agency for Men<br />
  2. 2. Dress Rule Number One<br />According to the ‘Purple Eagle Ten Platinum Dress Rules for a Man’, socks and underwear are the foundation of your style. <br />But usually they are the underdog in a man’s wardrobe. <br />Not a good look!<br />By starting with the right foundation, you set yourself up for dressing success. After all, socks are an essential part of your wardrobe. <br />
  3. 3. Materials<br />Seek socks in natural materials or a mix with only a small percentage of manmade fibers.<br />Socks come in various materials:<br />Wool<br />Cotton (Lisle, Sea Island)<br />Cashmere<br />Silk <br />Cashmere and Silk are luxurious and should only be worn for special occasions.<br />Above: Wolsey<br />
  4. 4. Sizes<br />
  5. 5. Sizes<br />If in doubt about your size, there is a little trick we use at Purple Eagle...<br />Take the foot part of the sock and wrap it around your wrist. If it touches, it should be the correct size for you!<br />Falke Slipper Socks<br />
  6. 6. Caring for your Socks<br />Always look for a hand-linked toe and heel in your socks. This gives a cleaner, seamless finish. <br />Most quality sock manufacturers will include a ribbed panel to hold up your sock. <br />Wash your socks in 30 degrees with similar colours. <br />If you notice worn heels, sagginess, discolouration, holes or any signs of ageing, throw your socks away. People DO notice. <br />Corgi<br />
  7. 7. Purple Eagle Recommends<br />If transitioning from day to evening or work to social, use a dress sock in wool or wool blend. <br />Choose a mid to long sock. This way when you sit down or cross your legs, your flesh will not become exposed. <br />Classic black, navy blue, brown, grey or beige will be safe and will work with any outfit. <br />Turnbull and Asser<br />
  8. 8. Purple Eagle Recommends<br />Brands Falke, Wolsey, Turnbull and Asser , Pantherella, Corgi, John Lewis and M&S offer good options. <br />Don’t wear the same socks twice, wash in between each wear. <br />12 pairs will be a good minimum to have in your drawer. <br />Try to match your socks to your trouser. <br />Pantherella<br />
