Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it. - Nicky Hilton

The sexiest thing about a man wearing socks is that you know he's got them on but when he walks, it exposes his undies.

Suggested Sock Fabric Guide Depending on Each Use

Socks can be constructed from many types of materials including natural fibers like cotton, wool, angora, cashmere to synthetic acrylic, nylon, polyester coolmax, drymax, elastane/lycra/spandex.

  • Daily use: 100% Cotton, Cotton & Polyester blend, Bamboo, Polyester, Spandex

  • Jogging: Bamboo, Polyester

  • Sports: Bamboo, Polyester

  • Outdoor Activities: Wool, Bamboo, Polypropylene

  • Relaxing, Chilling: Cashmere, Wool

  • Wet Activities: Nylon, Spandex

  • Winter wear: Wool, Polypropylene

  • Dress wear: Nylon, Spandex

It makes sense to verify and match each sock with each activity, each fabric serving different purposes and construction techniques to keep your feet happy all day long! nobody likes to sweat for no reason nor ending up with early blisters that could have been prevented with the proper blend of fabric.

So yes, there are some fabric blend considerations to appreciate, especially when practicing sports and high-intensity activities and there are some rather fashion considerations that can take over when the fabric may not be so crucial as the statement we wish to project or the look itself, if you catch my drift.
