Dirk Wears White Sox is the debut studio album by Adam and the Ants. It was released on 30 October 1979. It holds the distinction of being the very first number one album on the UK Independent Albums Chart when the chart debuted in Record Week in 1980.

Many of the songs, notably “Cleopatra” and “Never Trust a Man (With Egg on his Face)”, has remained a part of Adam Ant’s live repertoire throughout his career, both with the Ants and later as a solo artist.

Allmusic, in their retrospective review, rated Dirk Wears White Sox four-and-a-half out of five stars stating that “the album offers a fascinating look at the Ants’ formative years”.
