The modern English word sock is derived from the Old English word socc, meaning “light slipper”. This comes from the Latin soccus. A term to describe a “light, low-heeled shoe” worn by Roman comic actors, and deriving from the Ancient Greek word sykchos.
Until 1800 both hand knitting and machine knitting were used to produce socks. But after 1800, machine knitting became the predominant method. This encouraged designs of more complexity and experimentation with different materials.
Also, socks were an integral part of rugby uniform. Moreover, at rugby school players wore their school flannels. In 1871 the first official “kit” consisted of an ordinary shirt. And bow tie, with a thin vest over the top, trousers, socks, and heavy-duty boots. The rules also dictated that players at the school of Rugby should wear “dark serge trousers, black and scarlet striped jerseys and socks”.
