These two little notes were enclosed in this month’s package. On the left is the style of socks my husband received this month – the Shelby Special. It gives tips on how to style them. What’s really funny is that this, our first pair of socks from Southern Scholar, share the same name as my absolute favorite southern scholar, the late Shelby Foote. What a coincidence! On the right is a card with website and social media information.


OK seriously, what are these socks made of? Some kind of angel fluff? These are the softest socks I have ever felt. I’m curious to see how they hold up after washing and wearing a while, but for right now they are absolutely divine. My husband loves them! He is a big fan of wearing little bits of unusual color, and he is also awed by the softness.

Verdict: Do you remember the first time you thought, “I would never spend $30 on shampoo!” and then you somehow got some shampoo that cost upwards of $30 and realized that it was completely worth it and now you have to put shampoo on its own line in your budget? That’s what’s happening here. We love our socks from Southern Scholar! (See how I changed it to “our” there?)

What do you think of Southern Scholar?

  1. Sorely tempted to get this for my SO. If I had more money it’d be a no-brainer. But I don’t :-/.

  2. Their packaging is so cute! I’m considering buying this as a splurge for my husband even though he doesn’t get to wear dress socks very often.
