SHIRT COMPARISON FOR HOME PAGE

 

We launched TEAL Apparel with pants because you can’t hide floods. But, shirts for tall men can be just as challenging if not more!  Which is why we developed our own line of shirts that are fit for the man with a slimmer silhouette, longer torso and longer arms. No dis to regular shirts, they just don’t cut it if you’re long & tall.

Our Interns: Lauren and Naomi

October 1st, 2017

Naomi Ricciotti, Newbury College, Graduate

 

Naomi on what she learned

  

Thoughts on being an intern?

Being an intern at TEAL Apparel was an awesome experience. Jenni is a great mentor and I learned so much throughout the duration of the internship. I enjoyed going to work because it was such a positive atmosphere and there was never a dull moment. The internship was very hands on and I learned something new every day!
  

What did you expect?

When I walked through the door on my first day of the internship I had already known that I was going to have a great experience. Jenni spoke about her goals and the company with so much passion which got me really excited before even starting my internship. I didn’t expect that we would get to visit the factory which was one of my favorite experiences
 
 
 intern 2
  

Best part of the internship?

The best part of the internship was the fact that I got to see and be involved in so many different aspects of the business. Every time I came in to work I had a different task to achieve which not only challenged me but allowed me to learn something new. For example, one day I would be conducting research for product development versus another day where I would be creating social media posts.
 
 interns 4
 
 
 

What surprised you the most?

What surprised me the most was how involved Jenni gets with her interns. I loved the working environment because it was more face to face which allowed us to work together as a team. Whether I had a question or an idea about something she was there to listen and give input. She was with me every step of the way and we made a great team! 
 
 


 

This past Winter/Spring TEAL had a new first. Instead of one intern we lucked out with two. This dynamic duo came to us from Newbury College, with Fashion Merchandising majors and several shared experiences including, study abroad in Florence, Italty to directing and coordinating the College’s fashion show. To say we hit the jackpot was an understatement. They cranked out blog posts, did research on several new products, sat in on sample fittings, shot tons of material for social media, coordinated a photoshoot, joined a sales pitch to a new client and journeyed to our factory in Everett.  Lauren and Naomi model teamwork, commitment, creativity and determination. Thank you and congratulations on your graduation from Newbury College! Wishing you both much learning and success.

Our Interns: Lauren and Naomi

Lauren Shropshire, Newbury College, Graduate

 

Lauren (left) on what she learned

 

 

Thoughts on being an intern?

I really enjoyed being an intern at TEAL Apparel. I not only had fun, but I feel that I learned a lot about how a business runs. I really loved being up close with the products, and being able to see all the different facets of how the product goes from being an idea to becoming a reality. I liked that TEAL was a small company, because I feel that if I had interned at a large corporation, I wouldn’t have learned as much. 
  

What did you expect?

I don’t really know what I expected to be honest. I guess when I think of an intern and an internship, I think of someone who is fetching coffees for the big boss. But that is not what TEAL was like at all. I didn’t think as an intern that Jenni would ask for my opinion or my input on products as much as she did. I also didn’t think the internship would be as hands on as it was.
 
 
 
intern 2
 
 

Best part of the internship?

There were a lot of best parts of this internship for me. One of the parts that I really enjoyed was going to the factory. I loved seeing where and how the clothing was made. I also really liked sitting in on meetings with Jenni. I thought it was very interesting to see how meetings like this work. I think I learned a lot from watching Jenni in these meetings, and hearing and seeing the types of questions she asks, and how she answers the questions that are posed to her.
 
 
 
intern 3
 

What surprised you the most?

 
Hmmm…The thing that surprised me the most is how cool Jenni is and how passionate she is about TEAL Apparel. Like I said, I didn’t really know what to expect with this Internship, but Jenni exceeded anything that I could have imagined. She was just so helpful, I feel that I’ve learned a lot with just talking to Jenni and getting advice on my future. Jenni is very insightful, super encouraging and supportive. I really enjoyed this internship, and all the information and skills that I have gained from this.

Our Intern: Sarah Ingram

July 20th, 2016

 

sarah behind scenes 

 Sarah Ingram, Dexter Southfield, Graduate

 

Sarah on what she learned  

Thoughts on being an intern?

Being an intern has the notorious reputation of being the person who is just there to make coffee runs and stay out of the way, but working at TEAL was a completely different experience. I got hands on experience in learning how a small business runs and how the CEO must be able to run all aspects of the company. 
 

What did you expect?

Never being an intern before, I really had no idea what to expect. Due to the short time of the internship, however, I was nervous that I wouldn’t learn anything substantial and would adjust to a new environment just to leave. But I was completely wrong, because I felt at home immediately and found the two weeks extremely productive. 
 

Best part of the internship?

The best part of the internship was being able to experience the marketing side of fashion, something I have never been introduced to before in my life. I also got to watch Jenni pitch her company to a possible buyer, helping me learn how necessary it is to be able to eloquently sell your idea or company. 
 

What surprised you the most?

I was surprised most by how much fun I had doing the photoshoots, but also how much unseen work and effort goes into getting good photos for a website or catalog.

I had the unique pleasure of meeting and working with Sarah this past Spring. She came to us as a Dexter Southfield High School senior and spent 2 weeks doing a little bit of everything: coordinating photoshoots, finding models, photographing and videoing TEAL’s products and capturing her vision for the brand as well as joining a sales pitch to a buyer and preparing materials for fulfillment. Sarah models grace under pressure and contributed commitment, passion and new ideas! Thank you and good luck at George Washington University this Fall.

Lifestyle: www.Tall.Singles

December 4th, 2015

 

Tiptoe 2

 

During college, I was a student athlete on the crew team. At 5’9 I was on the short end of the spectrum. Many of my teammates were 5’10 – 6’+.  Finding an appropriately tall person to date was as easy as finding another student athlete.  The tall dating pool was built in.

However, after school, in my 20s I moved to a big city.  I had a few above average height friends (gals 6′ tall) and I noticed that tall mates seemed less available unless you were part of an athletic club (e.g. volleyball club, triathlete circuit) or just got lucky and worked with a tall person or tall people). It was challenging to find tall guys to date and it seemed like the most important criteria (aside from having a job and not being an axe murderer!!) was height. They needed to find someone that was taller than them.

With each generation getting taller finding a tall mate may become more of a challenge. www.tall.singles Founder, Richard Vickery, tells us why and how his tall dating site works. TallSingle.com started in the UK and is now in the US and it boasts 80 marriages. If height is a “must-have” quality for you then read on and find out how www.tall.singles weeds out the shorter mates. Let vertically enhanced love find you.

Q

Why a tall specific dating site?

When I got to that age where you start going to nightclubs and bars trying to find girlfriends I would always struggle to meet someone. Not becuase I was ugly (well I hope that wasn’t the reason!) but because I was tall. You see I had a growth spurt in my teenage years and in my late teens I was head and shoulders above everyone my age. So when I walked into a bar I was very often the tallest person of my age in there and the majority of the women my age were much shorter. This continued all the way throught my early 20’s. It made me think that I meeded to find a way to solve this problem. So one evening I searched for free domain names and realised tallsingles.co.uk was free, I bought it immediately and started a tall persons dating site.

 

Q

 

Do tall people have more difficulty finding a mate?

A

 

Well from my experience and the feedback I have had from other people, the answer would be yes! Women seems to want to date men who are taller than them, much of this is due to social pressure (it’s not often you see couples where the man is shorter) and some of it is to do with wanting to feel protected by a taller man. For tall men, it’s again the social pressure but also the fact that a really big height difference can feel awkward. Tall people get enough people stare at them when they walk along on their own, that is multiplied 10 times when they walk hand in hand with a partner who is much shorter.

Q

 

Are tall people considered more attractive which is why they can have their own site?

A

 

No I don’t think so. The idea of the site is to allow tall people to meet other tall people, in order to avoid the “difficult” situations that arise when tall people date much shorter people.

 

Q

How does your dating site work? Do you set up a profile, wink, go on dates, etc?

A

 

You can join our site for free initially, so you can see if it is of interest. You set up a profile, which includes a photo, some multiple choice questions which you answer about yourself and a small bio. Once that is done, you can then search for people you might want to date and send them a ‘wink’ (which is an easy way to say you like the look of them) or a message. If you want to arrange a date, you have to upgrade to paid membership.

 

Q

 

What is the cost to join your service?

A

 

Our business model is a subscription service. The costs are as follows, 6 month’s membership £79.95, 3 month’s membership £49.95 and 1 month membership – £24.95. We are up to 72% cheaper than one of the most popular dating sites match.com and of course we only have tall members on our site which is just what tall people want. I am happy to give your readers a 50% discount on a 1 month membership, all they need to do is enter code “50TALL” at checkout.

 

Q

How do you set yourself apart from your peers?

A

 

Two things set us apart from our peers. Firstly we are one of the only tall dating sites that restricts members by height, women have to be 5’5’’ and over, men 6’0’’ and over. Secndly we are building a tall community, to discuss tall issues, have a laught about all those things tall people are asked etc.

 

Q

Why did you start this business? Was it to find a relationship? Can you share other success stories?

A

 

I started the business in 2012: http://www.tallsingle.com/. As I mentioned above it was to solve a problem that I had encountered when I was younger. I would definitely use it to find a relationship, but when I created the site I was already in a relationship.

 

We have had over 80 marriages so I can happily share some success stories.  To be continued in a future post.

Thank god for underwear.  My 1 to 2 inch back up plan.

 

Keep plumbers butt from making an appearance. This might be a common rapper style, but this is a way of life for tall guys. Every day tall guys live on the edge of being a public flasher. Now you can stop pulling your pants down; TEAL Apparel helps raise you up and get you the fit you deserve.

unibrow blog

 

How did we get here? 

 

Backstory: Wife buys you pants that have the perfect length, but a giant waist.  Ever had an excessively loose pair of pants that needed to be taken in so much that the back welts touched?  Then you know what unibrows are. They are pants and shorts that don’t quite fit right – in fact they’re downright huge and need to be tailored. If it wasn’t for a trusty belt these pants would be cleaning the floor around your ankles.

Tall guys – you all have these pants in your rotation. They are the ones you wear when everything else is dirty. The last resort. The lowest moment in your week, when you wished you had remembered to do laundry so that you wouldn’t have to pay the price.

The unibrow pant problem always reminds me of my husband’s dragon pants. One year I was determined to find my husband a pair of upscale, dark wash jeans. I literally searched the entire city of San Francisco and I couldn’t find a 38×38 jean anywhere. I finally found ONE pair of urban, rapper style jeans at Bloomingdales. They were supposed to be worn super slouchy, off the hips and baggy. Not intended to be worn at the waist with the hem hitting right below the ankle like a regular pair of jeans. No matter, I was determined to make it work.

From the front these jeans were awesome. The leg fit well enough and it was a nice dark wash. The back was a totally different story. Each back pocket had a giant, gold, embroidered crown bearing dragon. Subtle, not so much. Especially since my 6’7 husband’s backside is at everyone else’s eye level! At parties he would wear his “nice” jeans and become the butt of the joke. Literally. Hey man, what’s up with the gold dragons? After one year’s Christmas Party he never wore them again. Moral of the story: Tall guys can’t hide their assets. 

That’s why I launched TEAL Apparel – to stop Unibrows, dragon patches and the walk of shame. I want tall guys to have access to incredible fitting chinos and shorts so that they can do the walk of fame!
