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!

I really liked the first package. The socks are high quality and versatile, and I appreciated the additional information included about the fabric quality. They also included a style inspiration card that is useful. Overall, I'm really impressed with this box!
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...
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.
These sock look and feel great
I gave as a gift to a friend who takes their sock wearing very seriously and he said they’re better than Nordstrom’s socks!
After looking to gift what seemed every sock subscription company out there I am so satisfied with Southern Scholar. I had trouble finding an appropriate design and material for the day to day office, rather than day to day life. I reached out them and asked a question about shipping. I was surprised to see the Founder, Kevin, emailed me back directly. I placed my order on a Friday morning and the socks were delivered that Monday morning. Crazy fast, especially since shipping is free and the price is extremely reasonable for the quality and design. So for anyone looking for a nice gift (ya know for yourself guys, or someone else) whether it’s one order, a few months, or a year long subscription. I HIGHLY recommend Southern Scholar Socks, it is a one man show from design to shipping, social media and emails. Such an awesome brand that I had to share from the customer service aspect, to quality design and style, Kevin is fully invested in his company and it shows!
I gave my husband a 6 month subscription for Father’s Day. He loves it! The packaging and presentation of the socks upon opening lets the receiver know these aren’t your run of the mill socks. The quality is top notch and the patterns are stylish yet classic. He has already had several friends asked where he got them. I am certain I will be renewing his subscription for Christmas.
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!
I look forward to my monthly shipment of a fun, classy pair of socks. I have tried multiple subscriptions and this one is by far my favorite. Thanks for improving my wardrobe one pair at a time!
I have been a Southern Scholar subscriber since the start when they shipped their first monthly package. From Day 1 I have been impressed month after month by the quality of the product and by the high level of customer service. Southern Scholar has really taken an interest on getting feedback and refining their product and consistently deliver a unique yet professional design that is great for work. I would recommend a Southern Scholar subscription to any professional or anyone looking to step up their wardrobe.
