Can men wear the original Strathcona Stockings?
Yes, absolutely. The original Strathconas are perfect for men. They fit almost all sizes. They are soft and comfortable. Because they are thinner than the Strathcona mens socks they are especially great for men who don't like bulky socks, or those who have shoes normally worn with bare feet.
You are Canadian, why is the shop in US Dollars?
We are Canadian. But most of our customers are not. Since we only have one currency in our webstore USD makes the most sense, as it is one of the most common and understood global currencies. (But to balance this out, we offer free shipping within Canada and price adjustment/)

Yes. We want you to be totally happy with your order. If you are unhappy you can return your unused goods within 30 days receiving your order. They must be new and unused with their packaging intact.
We do our best to ensure that our product is of the highest quality. That being said occasionally we miss things during quality control. If there is a manufacturers flaw, please let us know via email and we will absolutely figure something out. See below for how to return your item.
Why aren't you emailing me back faster?
We are a very very small team over here. And while we try to answer your questions in a timely manner, we get so many emails that sometimes we focus on the most time sensitive ones.
How should I care for them?
Are you a person that hand washes your intimates? Think about it. For longest life and enduring colour vibrance, we suggest you hand wash in cold water and hang to dry.
How do I specify my 3 Pack?
You can email us. Or even better, put your choices in the order!
Can I choose anything for my 3 Pack?
You can choose any socks, stockings or sparkle socks that we have in stock.
