About Covert Threads
I deployed with II MEF, Feb. '05 to Fallujah, Iraq in
support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
My good friend, Peter Menzies, has been in the sock
business for over 60 yrs. Before deploying, Peter gave me 8 pairs of socks.
Although the socks felt great, the extreme heat and other
elements resulted in foot problems such as blisters and hot spots. I emailed
Peter with these problems and asked him if it was possible to develop a better
sock for a specific climate.
Within a month Peter had shipped me a new sock called the
"Sand" boot sock. This sock was awesome! It worked so well that I
emailed him back and asked if I could get more to hand out to other Marines.
The result was Marines ordering more of these socks directly from Peter.
Upon returning from Iraq, Peter and I created a company
called "Covert Threads." Our mission was to develop a line of socks
along with other improved garments for the Marine, or anyone looking for
comfortable yet rugged socks that stand up to the rigors of harsh climates and
"A Sock for every clime and every place!"
We are even taking this to the next level and making
improved products to outfit the USA's Finest. Keep in touch for continual
