Studying The Performance of Men’s Socks

Studying The Performance of Men’s Socks Socks are one of the most important accessories, which have many kinds of blend composition, design, style and construction. In this study, an investigation was conducted to identify the blend composition ratio, stitch density, thickness, weight per unit area and air permeability to explore their effects on the durability and comfortability of socks. Other factors that affect durability were also investigated, such as the abrasion resistance. The result shows that the increase in weight and stitch density can lead to a decrease in air permeability, while the when the weight and stitch density increase lead to decrease in air permeability, while the increase in weight and thickness can lead to an increase in abrasion resistance. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research Journal of Textile and Apparel Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Socks are one of the most important accessories, which have many kinds of blend composition, design, style and construction. In this study, an investigation was conducted to identify the blend composition ratio, stitch density, thickness, weight per unit area and air permeability to explore their effects on the durability and comfortability of socks. Other factors that affect durability were also investigated, such as the abrasion resistance. The result shows that the increase in weight and stitch density can lead to a decrease in air permeability, while the when the weight and stitch density increase lead to decrease in air permeability, while the increase in weight and thickness can lead to an increase in abrasion resistance.
