Kappa Alpha Order was founded on December 21, 1865. This year the fraternity celebrates its 150th anniversary. We were thrilled when KA reached out to us about making socks to celebrate their sesquicentennial. We knitted three designs exclusively for Kappa Alpha. Each style incorporates the fraternity’s colors (Crimson and Old Gold) and “150” crest logo.
Kappa Alpha is comprised of 126 chapters and has 155,000 initiated members. The fraternity describes itself as “the Moral Compass for the Modern Gentlemen”. KA has produced leaders in a variety of fields, including J. Edgar Hoover (the first director of the FBI), Brandt Snedeker (PGA Golfer and FedEx Cup Champion), Zac Brown (Grammy Award Winning Musician), and Allen Stephenson (founder of Southern Tide).
