American made garments are renowned for their attention to detail and their toughness. If you ever purchased a bag from Seattle-based Filson, slipped on a pair of socks from Fox River Mills based in Iowa, or had the pleasure of wearing a Gitman Vintage shirt from the coal township of Ashland, Pennsylvania you would know exactly what I am talking about. American made products tell the story of our landscape and the good people who inhabit it. Montauk Tackle Company is a performance-based clothing company that speaks to the lush coastlines of the Atlantic, but mainly just to the progressive working man of the U.S.A.
Montauk Tackle references New York’s Montauk Point State Park, which contains a lighthouse commissioned by George Washington in 1792, but it is noted for its striped bass fishing. In the summer months, the breakwaters near the lighthouse are packed with bass fishermen from all over the world. Montauk Tackle Company’s logo references this tradition with two crossing fish hooks.
The company’s performance gear incorporates its signature MTCdryprotect system™, which allows an active person to be protected from the sun, stay cool with nanofibers that wick away moisture, a hydrostatic weave that protects against spill, and most importantly for that all-day fishing trip, bonded metallic alloys guard against odor. This advanced protection system is in their stylish t-shirts, crew shirts, polo shirts, button-downs, and shorts. The women’s apparel offering has slouchy hoodies and sexy cowl necks that both include the high-performing protection system. The cowl is especially perfect for a walk along the beach. It’s designed to tail down and cover the back of the legs.
CEO Ron Cesark is taking the company in an impressive direction. Montauk Tackle has doubled their profits from a year ago. Cesark understands the performance apparel market and the need for American-made clothing. Ron was very happy with sales at The Boathouse Restaurant in Disney Springs Orlando and at Rose Marina in Marco Island, he said, “Both stores are in reorder mode.” The business is extremely scalable as well. The company has a simple manufacturing process of staying local. Montauk Tackle is a company that is a perfect example of a community business. It brings jobs and growth to those around it, in addition to representing the culture of the coastal region. Ron second this idea on the company website: “Every garment that we produce is made possible by a huge, diverse group of talented American professionals and businesses, and every Montauk Tackle Company product you buy helps revitalize and energize those families, communities and American craftsman traditions.”
Montauk Tackle is a company that is on the upswing because of attention to detail, cutting-edge performance sportswear, and its dedication to American-made standards. The company’s website is now carrying a large variety and this will increase the growing sales. Montauk Tackle is a one to keep on the line.
