Men's black socks

# The history of men's black socks?

Some people think that black men's socks are the default choice. In reality, black is a color with strong meaning. It is from the 14th century that we see the color black spreading in the wardrobes of influential men as a symbol of power, integrity and dignity. Over time, black has also become the color of luxury because it is elegant in its sobriety without being devoid of character.

The best-known men's black socks are perhaps those of the Italian brand Gammarelli, also known as the tailor of the Popes since 1798. Indeed, this tailor specializing in ecclesiastical clothing also supplies their socks. Among the 4 colors offered, there are obviously black socks intended for priests to match the color of their cassock. The other colors are intended for bishops (purple socks), cardinals (for cardinal red socks) and white ones for the Pope.

Men's black socks are therefore the chic, timeless and essential accessory for any man who wishes to highlight his rigorous character, his elegance and his sobriety. Men's black socks, pure class!

# Which pairs of men's black socks to choose?

Contrary to what one might think, no, black socks are not insignificant. As the painter Pierre Soulage, to whom we owe these magnificent paintings with infinite shades of black, could have said, among black there are other shades of black and this is also the case for men's black socks.

Here is an overview of the models of men's black socks that we offer, their characteristics and tips for pairing them perfectly with both your formal and casual outfits. A pair of socks that can be worn with dress shoes, moccasins or sneakers.
