The Sock Review recently sat down with Nathan James, President of Boardroom Socks, for an interview to discuss the men’s sock company’s inception, success, and their sock drive which will be donating socks to the Williamsburg House of Mercy in Williamsburg, VA.

In the Q&A, James explained what makes Boardroom Socks unique; instead of becoming an industry disruptor, Boardroom Socks focuses on quality. They prioritize American-made products and exceptional customer service. This translates to the products themselves, which come from a deep understanding of yarn and hosiery. The James family has been in the North Carolina textile industry since 1837, making Boardroom Socks a multi-generational company. It is this experience that has enabled Boardroom Socks to secure the finest yarns at the best prices while maintaining expertise in design and manufacturing.

While made-in-the-USA products may motivate some, James emphasized that the real driver for buying a pair of Boardroom Socks is how they feel. “We want our customers to feel like they are getting great value when purchasing from us,” he said. Of his favorite designs, James mentioned the charcoal colored merino wool over the calf dress socks, which he says are versatile enough to go with almost any pair of trousers and shoe combination. As for patterned socks, he would choose the American flag dress socks, citing that he may be slightly biased because he designed them himself.

The full interview with The Sock Review can be found directly on their website.
