What, you may well ask, is a “dress sock”? We are told there are womens and mens dress socks, but this leads the inquisitive mind to further ponder, “What’s the difference?” Both womens and mens dress socks slip over the toe, cradle the foot from arch to heel, and extend well up the leg, passing the ankle, and only ending when they reach the calf.
Men’s Dress Socks
Men’s and women’s legs are different. Every male above the age of reason knows a man’s leg is hairy and straight, while a woman’s leg is smooth and curvy. But we are speaking of dress socks, and socks, as we said, start at the foot. A man’s foot is nothing to look at; hairy toes and gnarly nails. It is best covered at all times, except when swimming, and even then, it is under water, and out of sight.
Women’s Dress Socks
A woman’s foot, on the other hand, is a slim, shapely wonder to behold. And we often do, when they are sockless in sandals, barefoot on the beach, or playing footies under the table at a swank restaurant. Women get pedicures, paint their toenails, and cram them into torture devices known as slingback pumps. All with the goal of attracting the eye of the male beast to their dress socks.
Share a Pack with your Spouse
In short, women know how to use their feet in more advantageous ways than kicking a ball, or stepping on their partner’s toes on the dance floor. Their dress socks display their legs, and ooh la-la. But we were investigating dress socks and what is the difference. Both womens and mens dress socks begin with the same material, fine-spun polyester, the fiber of choice for dress socks. Which brings us to the crux of the matter. Guys and gals wear womens and mens dress socks. Men wear dress socks knitted from fine polyester. Women’s dress socks are also knitted from polyester, but often called ‘stockings’ and ‘pantyhose’. However, many working professional woman have made the shift to our dress socks for daily use as they love that our dress socks are soft, thin and have a silky feel. They’ll likely be your favorite socks!
