Who is Charles River Apparel?

Posted by


RobbinsSports.com has been carrying Charles River Apparel clothing since 2003. Charles River Apparel was started in 1983 by Walter Lipsett and, like several other high-quality outdoor apparel companies, is based in New England. Lipsett named Charles River Apparel after the Charles River, located outside of Boston, MA, where he rowed for the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Charles River Apparel sells only to distributors, but their prices are competitive with and sometimes even beat those of other manufacturers who sell directly to the public.

One noteworthy feature of Charles River Apparel products is they have a line of high-end “formal” outerwear that is comfortable enough to wear to a ball game but still appropriate to wear to a business meeting, such as their Metro Jacket and Monterey Bay Jacket. Also, their products are especially appealing to organizations who want their logo on the front, back, pocket, etc. of the jacket. Charles River Apparel offers several methods of attaching logos to their products and is licensed with numerous colleges, universities, sporting goods events, and other organizations. Of course they can always add a custom logo to your outerwear, too.

Like any good outerwear company, they offer many sizes and colors of apparel as well as various weights and fabrics, so there is always something appropriate for any weather. We at Robbins Sports value our relationship with Charles River Apparel because of their superior quality, customer service, and variety of products offered. If you haven’t taken a look at their products lately, check them out and see if they have something to fit your needs.
