hvorfor kan du ikke sige Manden iført strømper i stedet for Manden har strømper på

For that sentence to be correct, you need to say "Manden ER iført strømper". It's just a more formal way to say it :)

I still can't get the meaning of på, if someone could explain it please!?

In most cases, = on. So, "The man wears socks," = The man has socks on. I hope that helps! :-)

Strompe is really more akin to stockings rather than socks. Socks would be sokker
