The founding mission of Longshot Apparel is to create stylish shirts tailored specifically to fit tall guys 6′-6’8″. We believe that tall guys deserve to have the same well-tailored options as everyone else. We are tall, and partners and friends of the tall who one autumn day decided to make the perfect shirt and take on the apparel industry to fix this problem. Join us on the journey.
Mark is the official “Chief Tall Guy” at Longshot and resides in Seattle, WA. He is a long time sufferer of the lack of tall shirts and other clothing for the tall and fit man. Commited to creating a brand of apparel that “tall non-fat” men can get excited about, Mark plans to consult daily with his fellow tall man as the brand develops and grows. An avid cyclist, purveyor of technology, social commentator and world traveler, he hopes to bring a fresh point of view to the men’s clothing market.
