According to the packaging, this pair is made from premium-quality materials including 75% cotton, 23% nylon, and 2% spandex.
The socks provide a generous amount of ventilation which makes it a perfect pair to use on hot days.

Each piece has a Sous Shop logo on its surface. They come in a perfect size and they are great for keeping surfaces free from drink marks.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald ($10.97)
The only authorized edition of the twentieth-century classic, featuring F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final revisions, a foreword by his granddaughter, and a new introduction by National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward.
Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. First published in 1925, this quintessential novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.
You see, I usually find myself among strangers because I drift here and there trying to forget the sad thing that happened to me.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald –
We all know the story of Jay Gatsby and his extravagant parties that took place on Long Island and his obsession to reunite with his former lover, Daisy Buchanan. Set in the 1920’s, the book had a great presentation on how it was like to live during the “Jazz age”.
I have always loved and admired the books more than the film adaptations and The Great Gatsby is the perfect example!
This month’s Culture Carton included a lot of items that help me enjoy my favorite drinks, such as the coasters, bottle opener, and beer cooler. It would have been nice if they added a glass as well, but overall, I like the curation. The included socks are also great and they are exactly what I need right now to keep my feet comfortable despite the rising temperatures. As a nod to F. Scott Fitzgerald, this month’s featured book is one of his works: The Great Gatsby. I had fun re-reading this classic! Overall, it’s another well curated set of men’s lifestyle items and so far, I’m enjoying them all!
