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 2012, 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.
Expertly knitted, the style and comfort of our dress socks are unparalleled by the best imports. We know that “Dapper is in the Details” and believe that a gentleman’s socks can pull together his entire ensemble. Our socks complement a wide range of menswear—from casual attire to business suits and formal wear.
Over the last seven years, we've demonstrated our commitment to creating and supporting American jobs by purchasing five state of the art linked-toe knitting machines. Our socks can be purchased at more than 300 specialty stores across the United States—allowing many to shop Dapper Classics and support their favorite local business.
In 2014, we began offering hand-tailored trousers and neckties out of New York. And in 2015, we started carrying shirts made in Pennsylvania. More recently, we've added pocket squares and leather satchels to our line-up.
