Time to check out this month's package from men's sock of the month club, Sock Club.
Whenever Sock Club's package shows up in the mailbox, we're always extremely excited to open it. As you can see, Sock Club's packaging is fun, full of black sock related doodles on top of the thin brown cardboard envelope.
When you flip the package over you see an 'easy tear' opening strip at the top with the text "Open a Knitted Experience" beneath. Below that, we can see Sock Club's slogan "It's That Time Again." The subsequent text on the left explains Sock Club's mission statement. The text on the right informs that Sock Club makes their socks in the United States with American combed cotton and ship their socks around the world.
Super excited to see what goods are inside, we tore into the package!
The first thing we found was a note on a piece of white printer paper. In the first sentence, the note introduces the pair of socks in today's subscription by name. In the first paragraph, the note describes the inspiration behind the corresponding pair of socks. In the second paragraph, the note discusses all of Sock Club's social media handles and why you should follow them. Overall, we think the messaging of the note is awesome, it's always fun to learn about the inspiration behind any great product, however, the medium does not match the message.
The next thing we pulled out of the package was a piece of brown butcher paper with a bright red "SC" wax seal on the front. Just like every other month that we've unboxed the Sock Club's socks, we decided not to tear through the wax seal and to instead pull the socks out from the top.
As we learned from the note, this sock is designed for the adventurers who push boundaries; this sock is about wearing and embracing a bold pattern. This sock is called the Rainier and is meant to remind you to be brave in the face of all of live's challenges when you wear them.
The socks are black and red with a black sole, heel, toe, and top trim. The rest of the sock is red and black checkers, but some of the squares are made up of diagonal stripes. According to the Sock Club's note: "It's been seen crouched around campfires in dark pine groves, fording rivers in uncharted lands, and roughing it in the wild." This is a very fall/winter style sock.
Quality wise, these socks seem both soft and durable. Well done Sock Club.
