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.

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.

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

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.
