All of the middle upper class wear socks, sometimes made out of cotton, sometimes wool and even more fancy materiel like silk that were cut and made for there owner. They could have embroided some personal motif one the sides.
Remember that in the 18th century, you wanted to have the less skin revealed, so socks were very widely spread because of the breeches that would stop below the knee cap.
For the woodman and militiaman, wool leggings would be a good option because the fancy stocking would not have lasted very long in the woods. Military personnel would often wear gaiters, long or short. They militiaman would rather wear a pair of wool legging to cover his sock. This was a practice copied from the native.
We offered 2 kinds of stocking; first, a one size fits all, cotton & spandex style that is very appreciated and stay up without any additional strap, we even sell these socks to dancing groups who like them because they do not fall down during their performances. These are 8$ a pair. The second style is the regular 100% cotton socks that everybody sell on the road that are offer in size 9-10 men size and are also 8$ a pair.
