When it comes to fashion, people will buy almost anything – even miss-matched socks! That was the joke – but what started as a joke became a multi-million dollar business.
‘Mismatched Socks: A $5 Million Idea’ – June 8, 2012
What they do:
Market a line of mis-matched clothing, including stockings, tights, pajamas, bedding, swimwear and footwear.

Products sold through small boutiques, plus major retailers including Macy’s, L.L. Bean, Nordstrom. Sales: 5 Million+.
