Argyle socks 'show class'
Argyle socks are the fashion that never dies, one commentator believes.

Deon Lucas of the Examiner made his comments on the pattern usually associated with jodhpurs or golf socks, arguing that the style seems to have been slowly replaced by dull athletic socks.

However, Mr Lucas says there are a number of reasons why they are essential in any hosiery fan's drawer: they provide warmth, they look sharp and can make anyone stand out from the crowd.

He added: "You will feel much more confident removing your shoes knowing that you are in a fashionable nice pair of argyle socks and others will take notice and always remember that you wear nice socks."

According to wiseGEEK, argyle socks became popular in the US after president of Brooks Brothers John Clark Wood brought the style across the Atlantic in 1949 after seeing them at a golf tournament in Scotland.
