White socks 'should be left to athletics'
White socks are great for athletics and sport, but they should stay in the gym bag at all times, according to a male-orientated website.

AskMen.com stated that despite attempts to prove the contrary, white socks don't match anything unless you are a sugarcane plantation owner from the beginning of the 20th century.

The website added that they were essentially sportswear and should not be looked at in any other way.

It continued: "And just as you would never dare wear a hockey jersey under your dinner jacket, nor should you ever dream of pairing white socks with your designer jeans or your wingtips."

eHow.com said that white socks were susceptible to becoming dingy and dirty in a washing machine, recommending that a person soaks them overnight in hot water and detergent to get them sparkly again.
