Q: So the question I have is with respect to the measurement of the sock. How far above the ankle does the sock extend ? I prefer a sock to extend beyond the calf. To ensure the leg doesn’t show etc.Asked by Timothy B., May 2020

Southern Scholar Socks answered...May 2020

Hi Timothy,
Most of our customers are able to extend the socks over the calf. If you
receive your first pair and don't enjoy the fit just let us know and we'll
provide a refund!

Q: What’s the largest size of sock? Shoe size is 15/16Asked by Angela, August 2019

Southern Scholar Socks answered...August 2019

Hey there,
We've had members in the 15 range who love the fit and others who find them
tight around the calves. We've found that it is more about the width of the
leg than the size of the foot. Additionally, we offer a Fit Guarantee so if
they don't fit to your liking we'll refund them!

Worked out well as a gift subscription

I bought this as a gift for my brother in law, and he loved it. The subscriptions come in a timely fashion--even early sometimes!--and looks forward to getting them in the mail each month. I got it for him as a Christmas gift, and I like that it gives him joy all year round. I don't think many men enjoy shopping for socks, so it's nice that he has some new quality pairs to add to his collection to add to his professional attire.

CORRECTED REVIEW.
I previously reported a very negative review when in fact it was my own inability to navigate the Southern Scholar Account site to validate my shipments. My review is corrected and I would highly recommend this service.
Not only is the merchandise of top quality, but when the CEO takes a vested interest and contacts you over your concerns you know you are dealing with a company who cares! Kevin you've earned the 5 stars!


I purchased a gift subscription for a friend and when I signed up it said package would be delivered by Christmas. It was delivered on January 7th according to your system. Sort of defeats the purpose of ordering in time for the holiday. I also cannot validate that the recipient even received the advance note via email.

Southern Scholar Socks said...Jan 11, 2021

Hi James, and thanks so much for providing your feedback! I took a look at your gift subscription account and, according to the USPS tracking, the first box (the December box) was actually delivered on the 23rd of December and in time for the holidays. The second shipment (the January box) is the shipment which arrived on January 7th. Additionally the gift message was printed out and included in the first box that was delivered on 12/23. Please let me know if you have any questions and I'd be happy to answer them for you. I'll also send you an email to follow up as well.
Best,

Got my first sock (January 2020–black with blue polka dots with the Southern Scholar logo at top). Great design. Perfect fit for my size 14 foot. Wore it all day and it was comfortable and didn’t droop down to my ankle like other dress socks.

Southern Scholar Socks said...Feb 04, 2020

So glad you enjoyed it, Charles! Some people hesitate when we say our socks fit up to a 14 so glad to hear that you liked the fit!

I was using a competitor of Southern Scholar for the last few years and was disappointed in the styles and quality so far I am absolutely loving Southern Scholar's styles and you can tell they are much better made. Shipping is always on time and the customer service is outstanding. I highly recommend them.

I was a bit skeptical at first, but after one wear it is apparent these socks are something special. They get softer with every wash and the fit is impeccable. I cannot recommend these enough to ANYone who wears dress socks.

I’m a subscriber from Germany since a year now and i couldn't ask for more stylish and better quality socks then these. Every month is a surprise but southern scholar never let me down, loving the designs and 5 stars + for the quality as well.

A great addition to my work wardrobe.

I love Southern Scholar’s socks, not only are they great looking, quality socks that add a splash of color to my work clothes, but they include tips on what to wear them with. That is particularly appreciated for busy, color-blind and style-challenged people like myself.
