Coloured socks – Vulgar or stylish?
Opinion regarding the suitability of coloured socks on men is divided, according to one publication.

A number of legwear commentators have written in to the Times to air their views on whether bright patterned socks are vulgar or stylish.

One such reader noted that while black or dark coloured socks are more suitable with a suit it is up to the wearer to choose what hosiery they want to wear with casual attire.

Another socks enthusiast agreed, adding that while opting for odd socks may be a step too far, people should be able to express their inner child via their feet.

However, Lyndall Barbour of Warminster advised that if people who lots of pairs of the same  socks they never have to worry about losing one and spoiling a pair.

Meanwhile, fashion designer Giuseppe Zanotti has revealed that she has a passion for vintage socks, telling the Times that he has at least 200 pairs of the same black socks as "they just feel so nice against my skin".
