There are so many ways people use clothes to stand out and make an impression at work, and now it seems that statement socks are one of them.
It seems that among the growing IT world, flamboyant footwear is the thing to be seen in.
Speaking to MB.com, Hunter Walk, a director of product management at YouTube, said that wearing bold socks has become something of a secret sign of inclusion in the IT world.
"I have been in meetings where people look down and notice my socks, and there is this universal sign, almost like a gang sign, where they nod and pull up their pant leg a little to show off their socks," he explained.
The sock connoisseur added that his favourite pair of socks has aqua, orange and yellow stripes.
But perhaps it's not just computer geeks who are embracing colourful socks, rapper Snoop Dogg demanded a pair of clean dry socks after a Celebrity Beach Bowl flag football match.
