Much Maligned, Ever Popular — Socks for Christmas

Hartford York Great Gift Idea - Men's Tommy Bahama Cotton Socks - The Shaken Not Stirred SocksThe lowly sock. What a life! When you think about it, socks don’t have it great: they’re walked on, balled up, tossed into corners and some are even eaten by clothes dryers.

For all the advances in 21st century technology, though, we’ve never been able to replace socks with some other foot-covering (nor have we been able to invent a sock locator for the laundry area).

Face it, we can’t live without our socks. At least we’ve come a long way from the ribbed black elastic babies – you know the ones, they’d grow a little cloud of white elastic when they started to wear out. These days, we can wear comfortable pima cotton and nylon flat stitch socks (with a cool all-over martini glass design and hand-linked toe).

My ode to socks is over: my socks match my hat. I’m a happy man.
