comment What exercises are good to build up to performing chin-ups?
Doing negative chin ups means your muscles are doing an eccentric contraction, which happens to be much stronger than a concentric contraction, because rather than needing to shorten against the load, you're slowing elongating the muscle from a shortened position. I reckon it's beneficial because while it's 'easier' you're at least able to do it and possibly even repeat it.

Note that I'm using cotton here as something bad, but it's more used to distinguish between 'regular' socks and specialized sport socks

I've seen no evidence that stretching has a positive effect on your muscles. If they feel tight or sore, work out at a low intensity until you feel better.

comment Should I stretch after exercise?
Being able to put your legs in your neck @Kronos? But honestly, you shouldn't be needing it unless you have some kind of limitation due to immobility or misuse.

comment Should I stretch after exercise?
Because your mixing up stretching to increase your range of motion and stretching as a misperceived way of reducing injury. I will post an answer tomorrow, but I'm reviewing some articles to base it upon. It's not meant personal, but there's a problem with users extrapolating from their experience to other cases, where it might not hold true.
