History Of Socks:
Socks, like underwear, were among the first items of clothing worn,
obviously enough, because people needed to protect their feet and keep
Socks have evolved over the centuries from the earliest models which were
made from animal skins gathered up and tied around the ankles. In the 8th
Century BC, the ancient Greeks wore socks from matted animal hair for
warmth. Romans also wrapped their feet with leather or woven fabrics. By
the 5th Century AD, socks called ‘puttees’ were worn by holy people in
Europe to symbolise purity. By AD1000 socks became a symbol of wealth
among the nobility.
The invention of a knitting machine in 1589 meant that socks could be
knitted six times faster than by hand. Nonetheless, knitting machines and
hand knitters worked side by side until 1800.
The next revolution in sock production was the introduction of nylon in
1939. Until then socks were commonly made from silk, cotton and wool.
Nylon was the start of blending two or more yarns in the production of
socks, a process that still continues.
Today socks are worn for comfort and fashion, as well as warmth and
protection. Holeproof has socks for work, casual, sport, walking, bed,
school, industry, babies, skid-resistance and lots more. That’s why we’re
Australia’s favourite and sell over 500,000 pairs of socks every week.
The word "sock" is derived from the Latin soccus, the Old English socc and
the Middle English word socke. The "soccus" was a shoe worn by Roman comic
actors. It was a "calceoli" or sock-like and fitted loosely so they could
be taken off quickly. Roman’s sometimes wore soccus with sandals and then
removed their sandals indoors; the soccus remained on their feet.
8th Century Barbarians wore brightly colored socks.
During the Crusades and Gothic periods (1000-1300) linen hose made from
two-leg profile pieces replaced tube hose sewn together. Tapes tied to the
waistband held these up. Under the hose was worn a shapeless pair of linen
legs which were stitched through the crotch, hemmed at the top and
gathered by a drawstring around the waist.
Over time, the outer hose were joined and called closed hose or a pair of
From about 1340 onwards men started to wear shorter garments called
gippons or pourpoints. Long garments survived at court and ecclesiastical
and academic circles. Short garments exposed the leg and required hose
that was better supported and tighter.
By the 12th century the word meant a low shoe or slipper and later a
knitted foot covering sometimes extending to the knee. By 1583 the word
"stocking" was used to describe a covering for the feet and legs. "Hose"
came from the Old English and Old High German word hosa, meaning leg
Reverend William Lee of Nottinghamshire, England invented a sock-knitting
machine in l589, and started to make hosiery out of cotton, wool and silk.
The machine made bright colored socks easier to produce, cheaper, and
encouraged their popularity.
The developments of better knitting techniques were enveloped as well as
the introduction of the full bottom hose and codpiece. The leg sections of
these limb coverings were made to fit more smoothly by means of a series
of small darts, hidden by embroidery, around the ankles of the hose. As
doublets and suercotehardies came into general use the hose or chausses
were first worn over the breeches but eventually these became only brief
trunks and were then discarded in favor of the full bottom hose. Either
these styles of leg coverings were attached to the doublets or jupes by
cord laces with metal tap tips.
The embroidered ankle decoration known as "Clocks" were hot fashion stuff
on thigh or knee high hose in the 17th Century!
In the eighteenth century both men and women wore stockings usually white
made of silk or wool.
It was the Victorians in the late 19th century who insisted than men
should wear dark socks especially after the death of Albert, Queen
Victoria’s husband in 1861. A long period of mourning followed which, in
addition to the industrial revolution, made black the most prominent color
in men’s wardrobes.
In the 1930s a new circular knitting machine meant garments could be made
in one piece, and no longer needed to be sewn together.
Julian Hill was one of the scientists at the Du Pont Company in Delaware,
in a group led by Wallace Carothers. Hill was looking for a silk
substitute, and one day he discovered that by pulling a heated rod from a
mixture of coal tar, water and alcohol he could create a filament that was
strong, sheer, and silk-like in appearance. Further research led to the
first synthetic fiber, which soon came to be known as Polymer 6.6. Two
years later, in 1937, Du Pont patented the discovery, the same year
Wallace Carothers, fatally depressed, committed suicide. As a tribute to
his work, Du Pont decided that he - rather than Hill should be hailed as
the inventor of Polymer 6.6.
Synthetic fibers were presented to the public at the World's Fair in New
York in 1939. Taking the NY from the city's initials, the fiber became
known as "nylon".
Nylon was a revelation. The first nylon stockings appeared in New York
stores on May 15, 1940. Over 72,000 pairs were sold in the first day
alone, and the Japanese silk market collapsed almost overnight. Department
stores throughout America saw a similar stampede. In the first year, 64
million pairs of stockings were sold and manufacturers could not keep up
