Socks 'an insight into men's minds'
A mans socks can give an insight into his personality, according to one fashion enthusiast.

Making their comments through online resource the Wheatshaft, an unnamed writer notes that the wardrobe of a professional male is "limited" and therefore legwear is the only real way they can express themselves.

"Socks are that subtle, almost imperceptible clothing item that can make the professional male's uniform," they add.

The commentator states that black socks are a "safe choice", while grey woollen socks shout that the wearer is serious with a great mind.

In particular, argyle socks are singled out for praise, with the reporter suggesting they hint at "intelligence with a sense of fashion".

Meanwhile, people who fear that their fashionable legwear may occasionally verge on the smelly side are being offered relief by a team of scientists in Portugal.

According to the Financial Times, the researchers have created a new microcapsule which can be embedded into socks and tights , making them smell fresh.
