Meet New STL-Based Sportswear Brand Arch Apparel
Late last year, designer Aaron Park had a vision for stylish and sporty STL-themed tees that could go from ballgame to night out without compromising the wearer’s individual style. After joining forces with fellow entrepreneur Jojo Prapaisilapa, YouTuber Mark Watson and graphic designer Mitch Scheperle, Arch Apparel was born in September 2015.
What originally just started as a few T-shirt designs has developed into a full collection of hoodies, raglans, tanks, coffee mugs and totes. Each piece is designed locally and printed on American Apparel to ensure quality and fit. “We are going for a more trendy, modern, urban/hip look that we feel will allow people to rep St. Louis and look good at the same time,” says Park.
The full range of styles is available on the web, in addition to launching at two area boutiques, Too Blue Boutique and JuJu’s, in April.
