Mr. Clutch: Charlie Clapp
In the final throes of our Fall 2014 photo shoot preparation we had the slim fit chinos, but no model. Fortuitously, the Head of the Charles Regatta was taking place and I took my family to take in the elaborate festivities and get a glimpse of the reigning National Champions, the University of Washington Men’s 8. While at the UW Alumni tent I was introduced to Charlie by his Father Charlie (Rower and Silver Medalist in the 1984 Olympics), after asking if he knew of any guys who’d fit the bill of a slim fit model. Since rowing and athleticism are in the Clapp blood I took one look at Charlie and knew immediately we had found our slim fit guy. He was sold on being the “global face” of TEAL and willing to help a brand that he could relate with.
Charlie Clutch Stats:
- 6’3″, 165 lbs.
- 2014 Graduate of University of Wisconsin at Madison
- Medalist at 2012, 2013, 2014 IRA National Championships
- Uber athlete – ski, golf, sail, play tennis, bike and take the boat to the beach with friends.
- Tall Challenge: I feel like every time I go into a store it is difficult to find my size in stock. Finding pants for my slim waist and long legs are hard to come by. This can be frustrating and TEAL Apparel offers the perfect solution.
You are the man. Thanks so much for helping us out! We couldn’t have done it without you.
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.
