Elon Musk Confesses To A 'Penchant' For This Piece Of Clothing

Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk confessed his penchant for “creative socks” — something that sets him apart from Dogecoin DOGE/USD co-creator Billy Markus.

What Happened: Musk tweeted about his love for socks on Tuesday.

Musk also said that sock tech is “so advanced” these days you can “get pretty much anything in sock form these days!”

Musk’s tweet attracted a response from Markus, who said, “I only have like 30 pairs of gold toe black socks so I don’t have to find the match when I do laundry.”

Musk said he found gold toe socks “inevitably off kilter & washed out – a little troubling aesthetically & arguably a bit corpo.”
