It is that time of year; the opportunity to show your husband or father your love and gratitude. They are certainly different from the female race, but are useful and can even be great!

Socks are an Awesome Gift

Love Socks

Socks Deserve Love

We strongly disagree with people who are negative about these great clothing items saying they are boring. They are wrong. They serve a very important role in comfort, style and psychology.

Firstly they keep one of our most sensitive areas of the body comfortable; there is a higher concentration of nerve endings in our feet.  Secondly, socks are an awesome way to express yourself whether you are in a homogenous suit or lounging around on the sofa at home. Thirdly, they are an intimate product and one of the first things a man will look at at the beginning of the day; a touching message there or memory could reinforce a day or a relationship.

So all the fad product pushers of products such as belly button brushes, moustache products etc. need to pipe down and stop misallocating societies resources!

Socks are better than Fad Products

Hosiery beat Fad Products

He is so stylish in everything he does. Of course this extends to his feet. He will wear what enhances his current mood and is appropriate for the situation.
