Grandview Hosiery, LLC

About Grandview Hosiery

Located in Hickory, North Carolina, an area legendary for textiles, the C. Hugh Moretz family founded the original Grandview Hosiery in 1946. This small, one building sock mill grew into one of the world’s largest sock companies. Over the years, the name changed to Moretz Hosiery, Moretz, Inc., and Goldtoe-Moretz.  In 2012, the company was acquired by apparel maker Gildan.  Now, John Moretz, son of the founder, has brought together a team with over a century of brand expertise to resurrect the legacy, passion and innovation of Grandview Hosiery.

Quote from John Moretz

“Grandview Hosiery is honored to be a part of the John Wayne Brand family.  The John Wayne sock collection will provide the same Grit, Toughness, and Durability as the American Icon himself,” states John Moretz.
