In 2010, Mike James could no longer find the quality, American-made over the calf dress socks that he had worn for years. Local brands and manufacturers had either gone out of business or moved production overseas. As a whole, the textile industry in our home state of North Carolina was reeling. Boardroom Socks began with a simple question: how can we produce a high-quality dress sock while supporting our local textile industry?
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.
Mike and Carol James are the husband and wife team that started Boardroom Socks, working alongside their youngest son, Nathan.
The past seven generations of our family have worked in the textile industry, tracing back to 1837 when the family's original fabric mill opened in rural North Carolina.
Like many small businesses, Boardroom Socks started in our family home. As our business grew, so did the number of socks in our house. Prior to moving to our warehouse, we had over 15,000 pairs of socks in our house!
While we no longer operate out of our home, we are still a small team and are staying true to our roots. We will continue to focus on the same mission that got us started over a decade ago - producing quality socks right here in North Carolina.
On behalf of our family and the entire team at Boardroom Socks, thank you for your interest in our business. We invite you to browse our collection of quality, American-made dress socks.Shop Now
