I recently saw on Twitter another Glasgow Blogger reviewing Club Sock, the idea sounded cool so I thought lets give them a try and see what its like. As you may have read I tried Cheese Postie in December so I wanted to try another subscription service.
There were two I had in mind, one was Club Sock and the other was for guys boxers…I selected Club Sock.
If you know subscription services like Netflix etc then this is just the same but with socks. You pay a monthly fee for how ever long you like, and each month premium socks are carefully selected and sent to you via the post.
Club Socks subscription is split in to two :
- £7.99 a month
- £23 for a one off pay
I went for a one off payment of £23 for a 3 month subscription, as I thought lets see what style and quality they were offering.
Basically when you subscribe you don’t know what colour, brand or design you get till they arrive, so it’s a fun time when they arrive and you open your package for the first time.
As you can see from the above photo, this is how they arrive via the post. This is good, as there is not a lot of wastage since its just socks.
Now was the reveal of what the socks looked like.
First Impressions :
First impression was “pink”
Pink is not normally or really ever a colour I would choose, I am more a Black, or Blue person so this was a little disappointing.
The quality of the socks are really good, and the fit is very nice and comfy but its just the colour for me.
Yes, I did try them on, but due to the colour I wouldn’t wear this one so I am now hoping the next one is a better colour….well one that is more to my taste.
Overall the idea is very nice, and the quality of the socks are really good. For me this first one was a little disappointing due to the colour, maybe someone out there doesn’t mind but for me it’s not a colour I would normally wear.
Looking forward to my next one now.
