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
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
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!

Southern Scholar is a premium men's subscription sock club out of Dallas, Texas. Kevin Wohlman founded Southern Scholar just out of college while working in the business world and was tired of the monotonous "shirt, tie, dark socks, dark shoes" uniform that he saw everywhere he looked. An entrepreneur at heart, Kevin saw high quality, high style subscription dress socks for men as an opportunity for gentleman to upgrade their style. Thus, through a lot of research and hard work, Southern Scholar was born 4 and a half years ago!
￼Southern Scholar's box arrived in very attractive, professional, masculine packaging. The box was small and the perfect size for the pair of socks enclosed. It included the socks, a postcard detailing what sets the socks apart from the competition, a card for laundering and drying instructions and a small business-sized card with a picture of the socks on one side and a style card on the other side with pairing recommendations from their stylists.
￼The socks this month are called "The B.B. Kings," in honor of the King of the Blues. They are a variety of blue, black and grey stripes and very soft. At the top of both socks, their Southern Scholar label is embroidered, which also adds a touch of class.
￼What I like about these socks specifically, and the others showcased on the Southern Scholar website in their Look Book section, is that the socks are professional, stylish, comfortable (according to...
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.
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 love these socks they are beyond comfortable!!! The customer service is on par with Disney! They always reply to me in a very timely manner!! I can’t say enough good stuff about the socks or the company!!
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.
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.
Love the colors and the fit is fantastic
The socks are comfortable and have good color schemes that go with a lot of different dress pant and shoe combinations.
These sock look and feel great
The socks are great! My hard-to-buy-for husband has said more than once that the "sock of the month" he's receiving, is one of the best gifts he's ever gotten, so it's honestly worth the price!
