We want to hear from you!
Close to home. All in, the Definite collection is made within a geographic footprint that spans just 2,500 miles in the Americas.
It starts with locally sourced yarns spun in North Carolina. The yarns are stitched into our premium, performance gear in Colombia. They are packaged into biodegradable bags in a fulfillment center in Texas and, from there, delivered to their new home – on you. Small footprint, big impact.
For real. Definite Articles is the planet’s first biodegradable performance brand. We knew that traditional socks leak plastic into our environment, polluting our waterways and food supply for centuries – literally centuries. We knew there had to be a better way – so we found one.
We partnered with scientific and textile experts to learn from their research and innovative thinking in designing our performance line. We use a natural additive called CiCLO when spinning our yarns that make the synthetic materials – polyester and nylon - in our performance wear behave like natural fibers. Independent testing shows polyester and nylon treated with CiCLO achieve between 75 and 92 percent biodegradation in less than 2.5 years when in landfill, sea water and soil conditions.
Because no way should our clothes outlast us.
CiCLO is a natural additive we use when spinning our yarns that makes the tiny plastic particles in our performance wear act like natural fibers – so they behave more like wool, less like spandex.
CiCLO creates the tiniest of holes within the plastic fibers, and these holes enable the fabric to break down and biodegrade just like natural fibers would. The CiCLO technology does not change the stretch, support and strength of the performance sock. It simply allows the performance wear to decompose after you’ve worn it out.
Not a chance. Definite Articles designs performance wear to do just that – perform. It is made to be stretched and sweated in again and again. Only when you’re ready to say goodbye to the hardest working clothes in your closet, they will biodegrade when placed in landfill, sea water and soil conditions – typically, where recycled clothes languish when discarded.

Yes, most definitely. We designed our performance wear with movement in mind to support every level of play. They’ve run marathons, traversed trails, played tennis, and walked fairways. Definite Articles hold up.
Yes. Our performance apparel and accessories are made with high-quality recycled plastic that is tested BPA free and fit for human use.
This is an important question to ask. A recent study found that more than 80 sock brands had harmful levels of the chemical BPA – with some containing more than 31 times the legal limit.
We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, Google Pay, and Apple Pay.
