Should I Wear Over the Calf Dress Socks?

Whether you refer to them as knee high, business-length or the more traditional name "over the calf," these terms all refer to the same style of dress sock.

As the name implies, over the calf socks sit above the calf and just below the knee. Resting above the calf anchors the socks up on your leg and prevents them from slipping or sagging throughout the day. This is important for your comfort, as pulling your socks up throughout the day can become quite annoying; however, it is even more important for business etiquette. It is widely viewed as a faux pas for men to allow their bare leg to show in a professional setting. Wearing over the calf length socks ensures that even when seated or crossing your legs, your skin will not be exposed.

During the coldest months of the year, over the calf socks have the added benefit of providing additional warmth by covering a greater portion of your leg.

If you are used to wearing mid-calf length socks, we recommend trying over the calf. The length of them may seem overwhelming at first, but you will likely find them to be quite comfortable.
