Great American Knitting Mills is founded, in a humble effort to answer the needs of Americans hard hit by the Great Depression.
Consumers wanted hosiery that would wear better and last longer than ever before, so Great American introduced a sock with a gold reinforcing yarn sewn in the toe.
Before long, Americans everywhere were asking for the durable "sock with the gold toe" so the Company trademarks the Gold Toe brand.
Demand for the socks grows throughout the whole family as Gold Toe expands into women’s socks.
Leveraging the popularity with mom and dad, Gold Toe launches kid’s socks.
Previously sold through men's wear stores and habedasheries Gold Toe socks launch in JCPenney Corporation stores.
Gold Toe expands collections to include value offerings and starts selling into Sam’s Club and Costco.
Sportswear sales drive growth as Company initiates a sports performance collection under the PowerSox® brand.
Continuing its expansion into the hosiery business, Gildan purchases Gold Toe brands.
Leveraging Gildan's manufacturing operations, Gold Toe launches Gold Toe “G” underwear, t-shirts, and fleece.
