Frequently Asked Questions

Look, we've spent the last 5 years working to perfect the modern dress sock, but don't just take it from us! We have a 97% 5-star review rating across 1000+ reviews - check them out here!

We are pleased to announce the recent release of an OTC style in addition to our traditional True Mid-Calf option! Take a look at what people have been saying about them here!

Our Signature Material Blend contains the highest quality 32s/1 Polyester, Viscose, and Nylon/Spandex. It is unlike anything you've ever felt before and provides unparalleled comfort, fit, and durability. This specific blend of materials also allows the socks to retain their shape and color, resulting in a vivid pop of color, and deters from any fading or loss of shape after washing/wearing.

Unlike other brands, we use no cotton or wool in our blend!
*55% polyester, 23% viscose, 17% nylon, 5% spandex

The beauty of our socks is that our signature material blend is designed to form fit to your individual foot and leg – just ask our very happy customer, Bryan.

“I’ve tried them all – Banana Republic, J.Crew, Express – I much prefer your socks, especially for a size 14 foot.”

We generally recommend our socks for a men’s size 9-14 for a true mid-calf sock experience.

As always, our 100% Fit Guarantee means that if they don’t fit to your liking, we’ll give you your money back, no questions asked!
