What are crew socks? Height, size and all you need to know about crew socks

Let’s start from the very beginning: for example, do you know the crew socks meaning? The etymology of this word goes back to 1948 and it’s probably connected to the naval field, where the crew of the ship wear them as part of their uniform. From it the name “crew socks” as we well know.
