Your thoughts on being an intern…
Being an intern at TEAL was an amazing experience. My last two quarters were hectic, but I loved being able to do some serious work outside of school.
What did you expect…
I did not know what to expect because it was my first internship. I assumed I would be doing some work off to the side and less hands on work as most students predict. I was put to work doing what I loved, what I knew and new things I had no idea I could do.
Best part of the internship…
I learned things about myself and what I can contribute to the business and fashion world. I was able to see factories, learn more about what goes into running a small business, which was perfect for me. Best part was feeling wanted and heard every time I went to work. I did not feel like an intern but someone who was part of something great.
What surprised you the most…
Not being a long & tall man, I was surprised at how needed TEAL is for this niche market!
For starters, TEAL Apparel is first and foremost, all about tall. And long. Verticality. North and south. Head to toe.
In short, we rock tall. East and west — horizontal — width and breadth, not so much. In fact, not at all. Our goal is to produce a line of affordable tall mens clothing that place a premium on fit, function and form. We utilize the finest materials and manufacture right here in the USA. That’s us. Who we are. What we do.
For Men 6′ and taller
Live Tall. And Extra Long.
