One of the first pieces of fabric people trend to pay attention to is the same tool used to keep our feet warm. Socks but, today we are discussing the importance of dress socks. In the 8th century BC, the Ancient Greeks wore socks from matted animal hair for warmth. The Romans also wrapped their feet with leather or woven fabrics. By the 5th century AD, socks called ‘puttees’ were worn by holy people in Europe to symbolise purity. The next revolution in sock production was the introduction of nylon in 1938. Until then socks were commonly made from silk, cotton and wool. Nylon was the start of blending two or more yarns in the production of socks, a process that still continues. Dress socks give you a chance to express your colorful side there are tons of different colors and designs to select from.
