Fred and Harrison Rich were dissatisfied with bland men’s hosiery that would sag and bunch upon wear. They were also troubled by the limited options for American-made men’s dress socks. In 2011, the father and son team founded Dapper Classics with the intent of producing stylish Made in USA fine men's hosiery. After months of planning and research, they located a third-generation North Carolina mill that helped them realize their dream of producing fashionable, American-Made socks for men. Dapper Classics has since demonstrated its commitment to creating and supporting American jobs by purchasing three state of the art linked-toe knitting machines.
Expertly knitted, the style and comfort of Dapper Classics dress socks are unparalleled by the best imports. Dapper Classics knows that “Dapper is in the Details” and believes that a gentleman’s socks can pull together his entire ensemble. Dapper Classics socks complement a wide range of menswear—from casual attire to business suits and formal wear. Since its founding, Dapper Classics has partnered with more than 220 fine men’s retailers across the United States and has been featured in numerous print and online publications.
In 2014, Dapper Classics began offering hand-tailored trousers and neckties out of New York. And in 2015, Dapper Classics started carrying shirts made in Pennsylvania.
