Sock Static

Hey guys - I am hoping this is an easy question and someone has a quick fix. I've now got the over the calf knee-high sock thing going on...and I must say it is a must. however, now all my suits cling to my calf. it creates a look as if my pants are not tailored well. they look bunchy and don't reach my shoe. especially when I stand up from sitting. my legs arent abnormally large and my pants are not too tight either. its simply caused from the static on the sock. i thought about maybe using a dryer sheet on my calf and socks before i leave. anyone else have some thoughts or have this problem?
