Frequently Asked Questions

All of our socks are designed for a true mid-calf fit that stays up, though many of our customers do prefer to extend them OTC due to the stretch that our signature material blend can achieve. They are far longer than a standard crew but not quite as long as a knee-high. In fact, we recently received another review that speaks to just that!

Just got my first few pairs from Southern Scholar, and I’ve got to say, man they are great! I love how they wear as an over the calf but aren’t quite as long as some true otc socks I have from other makers. They’re also incredibly comfortable. I’m on my feet all day, and these guys ran with me.

Keep in mind that we also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. So, if you receive your first pair and don’t love the fit, they’re on us! If you'd like to see some more reviews you can do so 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 hold color, resulting in a vivid pop of color, and deters from any fading 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!
