"to satisfy the human need for comfort"
Jockey International continues to be a privately held company, headquartered in Kenosha, Wisconsin. We employ over 5,000 people around the world. Jockey International, Inc. was founded in 1876 by Samuel T. Cooper, a retired minister who wanted to help lumberjacks suffering from blisters and infections caused by their shoddy wool socks. Consumers learned they could trust him, and his tiny hosiery business grew and then expanded into underwear. As we have grown in size and sophistication, that simple commitment to serve our customers has continued to be our hallmark…and the secret of our success.
