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.

Seven Generations of Textile Expertise

Seven generations ago in 1837, our family's original textile mill opened in rural North Carolina. This facility produced some of the first dyed and plaid fabrics in the Southeastern United States, marking the beginning of our family's textile journey.

Throughout the years, the family businesses continued to adapt as each generation carried on the legacy of textile entrepreneurship. In the 1930's, the family's business took an international turn, as relatives began supplying manufacturers of women's stockings with luxurious Japanese silk.

This textile knowledge is part of what sets us apart from other sock manufacturers. Mike James, one of our company co-founders, has over 40 years of experience buying and selling yarns around the globe. This expertise helps us to secure the finest yarns at the best prices while also providing significant technical insight into hosiery design and manufacturing.

Committed to American Manufacturing

As the turn of the 21st century approached, textile manufacturing in the United States began a rapid decline. After mills closed throughout our region, we wanted to see local production return and from our experience working with textile professionals around the world, we have found that traditional American craftsmen represent some of the brightest minds in the business. Like our family, these experts combine tradition and technology to craft premium hosiery products.

In 2010, we started Boardroom Socks with a commitment that our socks would only be manufactured in the United States. Every pair of Boardroom Socks is knit and finished in North Carolina, just a short drive from the site where our family's fabric mill was built over 175 years ago. These deep North Carolina roots are why the state outline is included in our logo and stamped on each pair of socks.
