I am not sure how many types of socks there are? Athletic socks, casual socks, dress socks?

What socks to wear to go with what kinds of pants and shoes?

For example, for jeans or casual pants, and for canvas shoes or boat shoes.

Thanks!

Is any of these two kinds of socks good for casual (not sport) or even dress occasions?

Boat shoes should be worn without socks....as should sandals!

Many men will wear the low-cut sports socks with their sports shoes...the sock comes only to the top of the shoe.

Dress socks are thinner, and usually have a very faint pattern to them....casual, everyday socks are generally thicker and solid colored. You can get them in lengths above the ankle (mid-calf) to knee length...that depends on what YOU like!

Aren't dress socks usually dark colored, to match dress pants and dress shoes? Why do they have a very faint pattern?
