Mark Hall, Gentleman Creation Officer at the black sock subscription service for discerning gentlemen, commented: "If Man Flu is kind enough not to kill the infected party it will leave him weak, sick, aching all over with a tell-tale craving for sandwiches, a cold beer, TV and plenty of rest."


While it is common knowledge that there is no cure for Man Flu,, the high-quality sock subscription service for gentlemen, has conducted research which shows the following conventional methods exhibit the most promising results:

Wet socks

1. Warm your feet in hot water,

2. Soak a pair of socks in cold water, wring them out and put them on.

3. Put a pair of dry socks over the wet ones and go to bed.


The wet socks will help draw blood to your feet, thereby boosting circulation, which helps clear congestion.


Lay down flat and watch TV

Research has shown that by just watching and listening to TV for 30 minutes can boost levels of Immunoglobulin A (IgA), which is an immune protein that plays a critical role in defending against further infection.


Drink beer

Beer contains theobromine, a component that suppresses nerve activity responsible for coughing and has been found to be three times more effective in stopping persistent coughs than codeine.

Further research from finds a lower rate of Man Flu in confident, well-turned-out gentlemen who demonstrate good manners both toward their partners and to the world about them. A subscription is just the first step toward this healing process.
