Mr Average has '22 pairs of socks'
Gentlemen: don't worry if you have more socks than you can count. After all, the average man will have 22 pairs, according to a brand new survey.

David Thomas, writing for the Daily Mail, trawled through university research, government statistics, media surveys and other reports put together independently and found that blokes are huge fans of socks - enough to want 44 of them in the house, anyway.

Mr Average is also 39 years old, earns £512 a week and works 38.9 hours in the same period of time.

However, he may want to get his sports or golf socks on, as he also has a 37in waist and a body mass index of 26.9 - making him around a stone overweight at 5ft 9in and 13st.

Luckily, a recent report by the Daily Telegraph found that socks have become particularly cool in the last few months, with the likes of Chloe Sevigny not causing outrage by pairing legwear with sandals - once considered to be a cardinal sin in fashion.
