This year we purchased a new machine that specializes in jacquard designs (like the style pictured above).
Today is the five year anniversary of the Dapper Classics website launch. This past year has been an exciting one for Dapper Classics. Below are some highlights from our fifth year in business:
-In the last year, we demonstrated our continued commitment to American manufacturing by investing in a fourth knitting machine. This new jacquard machine is allowing us to knit a wide variety of patterned socks at the highest possible quality.
-Over the last year, we answered the call of many by knitting socks specifically for shoe sizes 5-9. Our Five to Nine Collection will continue to expand so our friends with smaller feet will have plenty of stylish Made in USA socks to choose from.
-At this time last year, our socks could be purchased in approximately 160 fine men’s retailers. Now our socks can be found in more than 240 retailers throughout the United States.
-This last year witnessed several exciting collaborations: two new horse racing inspired socks for Kentucky for Kentucky and advertising partnerships with two popular menswear blogs: Put This On and The Fine Young Gentleman.
-Finally, the Dapper Classics Team expanded in our fifth year in business. We welcomed two inventory specialists/order fillers (Anna and Olivia), a new accountant (Caroline), and more sales professionals.
Thank you for supporting Dapper Classics over the last year. We look forward to what the next year will bring.
