I brought these back into fashion in 1998 in my school. I went through some old drawers of mine and found lots of argyle socks. I thought they were cool so I started wearing them, but people only saw them during gym class (because we had gym uniforms). However, It caught on with the popular crowd, then trickled down to everyone else.

Argyle is still around and fairly popular. Other clothes and accessories have this pattern; not just socks and vests.

I had so many pairs of argyle socks in the early 80s, when these were considered part of a "preppy revival" of styles worn at Ivy League schools from the 1930s to the early 1960s. I had some in all-over large argyle and some with just three argyle squares over the outer ankle. I didn't like the pastel and bright 80s-style argyles, just the dark, woolly colors and textures that looked like they were from decades before. The bright pastel ones looked really cheesy and cheap to me.

We wore them; one color on the right another color on the left. Scrunched down with our High Top Vans. Miss that style.
