VF Corporation NYSE: VFC is an American apparel corporation. The company is the world's largest apparel company and a leader in jeanswear, intimate apparel, daypacks, and workwear. The corporate headquarters are in Greensboro, North Carolina.


The company was established first as Reading Glove and Mitten Manufacturing Company in Pennsylvania in October of 1899 by John Barbey and a group of investors. The company was started with only $11,000 and a 320 square foot factory that was leased for $60/month. It was incorporated in Pennsylvania on December 4 of that same year.

In 1912, H.D. Lee Mercantile Company (now Lee Jeans) opens their first apparel plant in Kansas City, Kansas, in order to meet a high demand for work clothing.
