Boardroom Socks came from humble beginnings. Just over 10 years ago, the James family started their family owned and operated men’s sock company in the attic of their North Carolina home. Their goals were simple: deliver high-quality, comfortable, well-priced men’s socks that are made in the USA. The first iterations of their socks were simple black mid-calf and over-the-calf men’s dress socks. After sales gained traction, the company expanded their product line by adding new colors and patterns. Then they introduced a casual sock line and diversified their men’s socks offerings.

As sales continued to pick up, co-founder Carol James could no longer pack and ship out every order herself. Additionally, there simply was not enough space in the attic to hold all of the orders. The team eventually had to transition out of the attic and into a larger facility. While they may have grown, all socks are still knit from premium yarns and materials right in North Carolina. With the majority of suppliers being family-owned enterprises, Boardroom Socks continues to honor their commitment to promoting local businesses’ success. While Boardroom Socks is celebrating 10 years in business, they are looking ahead towards success for the next several decades.
