Our commitment to American manufacturing doesn't end with our socks. From shipping boxes and labels to paper and packaging, we do everything that we can to partner with local small businesses.

Committed to Quality
From the yarns that we use to the meticulous design of our socks, our commitment to quality traces all the way through the production process. Finally, each pair of socks is hand-inspected before being shipped to your door. We're committed to delivering premium quality and always stand behind our products.

Family Owned & Operated
Mike and Carol James are the husband and wife team that started Boardroom Socks, working alongside their youngest son, Nathan. We are honored and humbled to be able to carry on our longstanding family tradition while supporting local textile manufacturing.
