"Hosiery" may have been a better translation.  See, for example, The Big Bang Theory, "The Lunar Excitation":

SHELDON:  ... I am being blackmailed with a hidden dirty sock.
AMY:          If that was slang, I'm unfamiliar with it. If it was literal,
         	      I share your aversion to soiled hosiery.
