The Best Everyday Socks for Men

Not only are crew socks the perfect length, but they're designed to last longer — and they come in a million colors.

Your socks are some of the most worn and washed items in your wardrobe. As such, make sure to routinely invest in versatile, durable pairs. Crew ones are my recommendation, as they rise high enough to cover the space between your pant's hem and the uppers on your boots, sneakers or loafers. Plus, plenty of crew socks come with elasticated cuffs and arches, meaning they won't slide down or lose their shape after a few washes.

Socks do eventually diminish, though. It's inevitable. Explore a range of hard-wearing materials and choose colors that compliment your preexisting wardrobe. And make it a habit to buy a new pair every so often so your sock drawer stays fresh.
