How to Fold Men's Socks


There are a few different ways to fold dress socks and just as many opinions as to which way is proper. Whether you choose to fold the tops over one another, connect them or fold them into thirds to stand in tidy rows, folding your socks makes it easy to find what you're looking for in the morning.

  • Take a matching pair of socks, both turned right side out. Hold them next to each other so that their ends line up, and fold the opening of one sock down about 2 inches over itself and its partner. This creates a cuff at the top of the socks that holds them securely together.

  • Lay a pair of matching socks on the table, one on top of the other. Fold the top of the socks over a third of the way. Bring the bottom of the socks up one third. The result will resemble a tri-fold billfold, and your socks will now stand neatly in a divided sock space in your dresser.

  • Simplify the process by folding the socks in half and either laying them in color-coordinated piles or securing them together with rubber bands.

Tips & Warnings

  • Avoid stretching the tops of your socks by using the same method as above, only turning one sock completely inside out so the other sock is actually stored inside of it.
