Do the socks make the man? Well, maybe not entirely, but we’ve all come across a guy whose outfit was amazing… until he sat down. Then we saw his weird athletic socks peeking out from between his dress shoes and slacks. It’s horrible when bad accessories happen to good fashion. And that’s a reality you can face if you don’t invest in the right dress socks. If you don’t want to be that guy, then you need to check out these socks and order a pair today.

Best for the Stylish Man

Men’s fashion can often feel boring when compared with women’s fashion. But you can inject a bit of personality into your socks. These Easton Marlowe Six Pack of men’s dress socks are the perfect bit of whimsy without looking out of place. Stripes, polka dots, funky shapes, checks, and argyle prints combine to give you a pep in your step. Meanwhile, the cotton fabric is pre-washed for enhanced comfort. Choose from seven different set—each featuring a different print combination.

Best for Minimizing Sweat

Let’s face it, sweat happens—and it can even happen with your feet. Nothing ruins your mood like realizing that your sweaty feet are eventually going to make your shoes stink. So, stop it before it starts with the Mio Marino Moisture Control Men’s Socks. Each set features a 12-pack of socks that are designed with breathable, moisture-wicking cotton fabric. The full cotton construction features 80% cotton with 10% each of spandex and polyester for a comfortable and stretchy fit. These sock sets also feature a range of patterns that include solids, stripes, argyles, and polka dots. Choose from six color collections.

Best for Banishing Odors

There’s nothing worse than taking your shoes off and sending everyone in the house or room running for the hills. Even though foot odors can and do happen, no one needs to be ashamed to take their shoes off. The Modal Odor Resistant Business Dress Socks set is designed to prevent this from happening. In addition to featuring moisture-wicking technology, these socks also offer a reinforced toe and heel for added durability. Available in a six-pack, choose between two multicolor sets.

Best for the Classic Man

If you’re a traditionalist, then you probably grew up on the industry leader in socks, Gold Toe. Their classic Stanton Crew Socks have long been a fan favorite and for good reason. The iconic gold toe features reinforced stitching and a smooth toe seam for added comfort. Gold Toe’s sock construction is a combination of cotton, spandex, polyester, nylon, and acrylic for a sock that holds its shape and is equally comfortable to wear. Choose from four color collections, each sold in six-packs.
