Sock Club – June 2015 – Review
I have mentioned in the past my love for socks and my terrible propensity for wearing holes into them. I am proud to announce that I think the tide is starting to turn on this horrible habit, and my blog might be the reason. I have found that as a review blogger one of the items I receive for review are socks. I recently received a pair of socks from SockClub.com.
Prior to this interaction I had not heard of Sock Club, which actually surprises me for a couple reasons. The first reason is that this company has been in the online world since July of 2012, and I have not seen any ads or not heard any word of mouth about it. The second reason is that this is an American made product – the socks are designed in Austin, Texas and manufactured in North Carolina and usually these are the businesses that get the attention for being “American Made”. The final reason I was surprised is that the creation of the company is cocktail party story worthy. The company was started when 2 friends bet over a corn hole match, began to think about what they could do with a small fortune and decided the answer was socks – Sock Club was born.
I received a pair called “The Prince”. The socks were packaged in a 8×11 cardboard envelope that was branded with the “Sock Club” name, leaving little to no doubt who the package was from. When I opened the envelope inside I discovered a wrapped brown bag type package with a wax seal in the middle designed as a method of closure. Also included was a letter that was made out to me that explained the inspiration for this month’s sock selection.
The Prince sock is a purple and black sock that is decorated with geometric shapes and the sock is solid black on the sole. These purple and black socks include a black 2 inch band on the upper ankle, with a thin purple 1/2 band on the cuff of the sock. The label stated that the sock is 80% cotton, 16% nylon and 4% lycra. This was a comfortable sock that was thin enough to not add any additional bulk to sometimes already tight fit shoes.
As for if the tide is turning on the holey sock situation stay tuned, until then go check out Sock Club, you won’t be disappointed.
