Nobody wants to be that guy who wears white crew socks with a suit. The same way nobody wants to be that guy who wears dress socks during workouts purely because they were the only clean pair in the drawer. I've waffled on in the past, but socks are literally one of the most essential articles of clothing. But time and time again, their importance, function and aesthetics are often overlooked. When you think about it, its almost like how most of us overlook cereal in the morning - Its importance and function is without question. To be honest, I can't believe I made that comparison, but in this case, it works (I think).
