Argyle Design - FASHION - Category Challenge

Got myself two pairs of argyle socks a couple of days ago.

I have always liked the argyle design pattern. Argyle design features overlapping diamonds and gained popularity in Europe and in the US after the first World War.

I actually bought the socks because they remind me so much of ska bands and argyle design patterns are related to ska bands and ska music/ska culture in general. Anyway, I would have preferred to get an argyle design pattern in traditional colors of black, white, and grey but I opted for a more colorful one. One pair was brown with matching brown, orange, and green argyle prints while the other pair of socks is grey with matching blue, grey, and green argyle prints. I already wore the brown socks and I already got complimented on it by one of my managers. Hopefully, I can purchase a knitted vest with an argyle design so I could wear my argyle socks with it.

How about you my fellow PPers, do you have preferred designs in your apparel?

Feel free to share.

Years and years ago, my father used to knit argyle socks for himself. I found a nearly finished one in an old sewing basket -- it was nicely done.

I own a few pair myself. Miss my old retired argyle sweater.

I love the brown socks better Lol! It is all about socks again. And of course design is really important to be more comfortable with the clothes and also be motivated. When I am irritated and I just want to really want to swing my mood into a better one I really wear pink blouses or dresses just to change my irritating mood before I go out.

It varies for me; I have plain and designed socks. Some with polka dots or shapes, others with just a hint of color, and others that are just plain white or black.

My husband had a giant wardrobe of argyle socks when we met, in all different colors. He only wears athletic socks, now, but I saved a few pairs of his argyles and wear them myself, occasionally.
