King x Portland Review February 2017

King x Portland is a sock subscription box offering a pair of socks delivered to your door each month, and it was born from the idea that great things happen at the intersections of life. Today, we start with socks.  King x Portland also offers a “Gift Box”, which is a one time box with three socks included.  Look for the review of this box on the blog.  The subscription box runs $15 per month with a choice pair of high quality socks shipped right to your door!

The Baskerville

Our version of a Houndstooth pattern.  The Baskerville is a literary-inspired sock that pays tribute to another famous Hound.  Bringing to mind leather-bound books and unsolved mysteries, it adds a touch of class when paired with a light-brown brogue, or wear with a bright shoelace for an unexpected pop of colour.

King and Portland probably can’t mention specifics due to copyright issues, but your subtle hints aren’t lost on me!  Have I mentioned I’m a lover of classic fiction?  Thus concluding that I myself have read Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of Baskerville?!  I love the class of this sock and I also love that the class is not lost on King x Portland, immediately referring to leather bound books and unsolved mysteries.  I can just imagine these socks on Sherlock himself as he sits in his oversized chair pondering another case.  Wow, I’m way off sock topic right now and deep into a mystery.

Though these are mens socks I’m completely in love with them myself and would immediately consider purchasing the gift box for a birthday present.  The quality is not to be ignored here.

King x Portland February 2017 – Final Thoughts

I think it’s safe to say I’m in love with this subscription already!  If you have someone in your life who only goes for the quality and has expensive taste, you know, that person you hate buying gifts for?  This is the perfect subscription for them.  I am also the queen of practical, so I’m that person that actually wants socks for Christmas and wouldn’t hesitate to buy socks for someone else.  Want practical, stylish, and quality?  Look no further.  Get treated like a king with this box!
