Here’s a story we can really get behind: a start-up apparel company that goes the usual manufacture-in-China route at first, but then brings all its manufacturing back to the USA.
According to its website, Wits + Beaux was founded after its owners conducted a frustrating search for “well made socks with expressive patterns, at a reasonable price.” They decided they “wanted to be the ones to make the perfect pair of socks.”
Even the name has an interesting origin. Apparently, the poets, orators, and politicians of Regency-Era England were known as “Wits.” The fashionable gentlemen were the “Beaux.”
Their collection includes socks, “beaux” ties in both big guy and little guy sizes, and pocket squares. Take a look.
