Subscription socks for men. It’s a potentially fun idea. Longtime Kits resident and founder Kyle Hope-Ross hopes it will catch on, and given the success of his recent Kickstarter campaign, it certainly has.
Gentleman’s Sock Co. was conceived from a frustration at the selection and price of fashionable socks in stores, and at the shipping options to Canada from online stores. Hope-Ross decided to fix this by offering a premium sock subscription service for a reasonable price.
Hope-Ross has been a sock aficionado for a few years, and noticed friends commenting on his socks. He wanted to spread the love far and wide. He came up with the subscription service which he hopes will be a hit with fashionable gents throughout Canada and North America.
The gist of the subscription service is that you will receive one pair of socks per month for as long as you’d like. Gentleman’s Sock Co.is currently offering one, three, six, and twelve month subscriptions. The price is $14 for one month, $40 for three months, $75 for six months, and $144 for one year.
Their socks are sourced from overseas suppliers; they specialize in bright, colourful, and fun designs. They will soon be submitting their own designs as well. You will never know what socks you’ll be getting, and you’ll never get the same design twice.
The idea was a pretty big hit as Christmas gifts. Hope-Ross thinks he’ll do pretty well for Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, and groomsmen gifts during wedding season.
