Guest Post: Socks Define A Man



Have something to say? Anyone can submit a guest post to Modern Mormon Men. Just send us an email with your post, a post title and a paragraph of introduction (on yourself).

Marcus Lane was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, and served his mission in Guatemala City. He spends his days running tree-lined streets and listening to his favorite tunes to prepare for marathons, half marathons and 10K's. He is married to his tall blonde dream girl and they have a two year-old son and another baby in the oven who will be making a grand entrance in February of 2012. Marcus writes on his personal family blog, Marcus Lane, where he updates his readers on the family's travels, humor, thoughts and other meaningless adventures. You can read Marcus' other guest posts here.

Socks define a man. It's true, you can learn a lot about a man and their personality by what type of socks they wear. As Modern Mormon Men and just men in general we all wear socks on a (mostly) daily basis and depending on where we work, what we do for work can have an influence on what type of socks we wear and why we wear them.

I am a people watcher. I could sit at an airport or amusement park and watch people all day long. If only I had the time to sit and watch on a daily basis. So, after a lot of people watching and noticing socks, I have come to the following conclusions about socks and personality. I have narrowed it down to 3 distinct groups and then show how they each define a man and his personality.

1. Plain - These are either a solid black or white sock. These are the type of men who don't really have strong opinions. They are usually quiet and well mannered and wear what is simple and easy. They might even have their wives buy their socks for them. These men seek independence and peaceful situations. They can be emotional and sensitive at times though. They listen well but are occasionally stubborn.

2. Gold Toe - These have the solid gold marking at the toe of the sock, it's gold. You know it and so does anyone else who sees it. The men who prefer these socks are the traditional men. They generally wear a shirt and tie to work, and tend to blend in with one another. They are very classy and can be powerful people. They find something that they like and they stick with it. Change might even scare them a little.

3. Color - These range from stripes, argyle, polka dots, multiple colors, etc....... The type of men who wear these socks are motivated by fun. They look for opportunities to socialize, party and go out. They are colorful and animated. They are energetic, carefree, positive and have an upbeat approach about life.

Now you may agree or disagree with this categories, but think about them. What kind of socks do you wear? Which category describes you? Do you wear the type of socks that corresponds with my conclusions? Or do you need to go sock shopping and think more about the socks that you are wearing?
