Today’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in North Carolina: High Cotton. High Cotton was established in 2010 by the Hill family. The company’s flagship store opened in Raleigh in 2013. High Cotton made a name for itself with its stylish North Carolina-made bow ties. The brand has since expanded to offer neckties, cummerbund sets, sport shirts, t-shirts, braces, belts, and other accessories. The flagship store carries High Cotton items and a selection of menswear products from other brands.
Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina. Raleigh is nicknamed “City of the Oaks” because of its many oak trees. The city is part of “The Triangle” – along with Durham and Chapel Hill. Raleigh is home to North Carolina State University and Shaw University – the first historically black university in the South. Andrew Johnson, the 17th President of the United States, was born in Raleigh.
