About Us


A Little Background
Future Tailgater's founding company, Dolly Hosiery Mills (DHM) was founded in 1939 in Valdese, North Carolina.  For over 40 years DHM operated as a hosiery mill that knit, dyed and finished high quality baby socks and booties. In the mid-1980's DHM expanded into baby bibs and caps and began offering Collegiate Licensed baby clothing under the Future Tailgater trademark.
Now Owned and operated by Gallo Enterprises Inc., a family owned company located in Concord, North Carolina, we continue to offer high quality licensed collegiate baby clothing. We also offer an expanding line of non-collegiate baby apparel. 
Our Mission
Consider our customer first in everything we do.
Why Purchase Stuff From Us?

We don't make anything that we wouldn't put on our own kids

We are very particular about quality and all products are made to our specifications. Our socks, booties and knit caps are made in North Carolina. Our apparel items are manufactured for us in Asia. We have high standards for labor practices and worker education in all factories that manufacture our line and we are active members of the Fair Labor Association (FLA).


We use Embroidered Appliques and Water Based Screenprint

Embroidered appliques are superior to regular embroidery on baby clothes since the applique does not leave a scratchy surface next to the baby's skin. We apply each emroidered applique using an industrial heat seal process that permanently affixes the logo to our clothing.

When screenprinting is applied to our product we use water based ink because it is safe & your childs safety is of utmost importance.
