We’re excited to have this Clarks Summit native at the Holiday Market! Paulsun Swim makes the perfect gift for the men and boys in your holiday list!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and when you started Paulsun Swim.
I’m a Clarks Summit native. Went to Abington schools through grade school, and then Graduated from Scranton Prep 2001. Went on to study Menswear Design and Fashion Merchandising Management at the Fashion Institute of Technology where I graduated with degrees in both both majors. Over the next ten years I’ve worked to learn the business in industry, and hone my skill sets. I worked in the design with several notable brands like Urban Outfitters, Perry Ellis, Armani, and Polo Ralph Lauren. In 2016 I left the industry, and New York city to take my shot at creating a fashion gives back brand. I had been dreaming up this brand since an organized sailing adventure I took with friends in Croatia. It was then that I knew if I was to create a brand it should be swimwear, and it should stand for/ represent more than just fashion. Our design with purpose motto refers to our fashion gives back promise. A portion of all sales helps support our favorite charities. Currently Paulsun Swim donates to Global Citizen, National Wildlife Federation, and World Concern. Built on that foundation, Paulsun Swim has now been in business for a little over a year and a half. We offer a quality product with updated classic styling, and timeless fashion colors.
What inspires your designs?
Primarily my design is based around functionality. Providing a great comfort fit that functions during use. Swimwear not only needs to look great, but also needs to function great. Design details like our signature 100% Nylon Teflon coated fabric for quick dry and stain resistance may not be why our customer first falls in love with our product, but it’s probably going to be one of the reasons they stay in love with it. I am inspired to provide the best product, in all aspects. So no detail is overlooked in our “same, but better” approach to design. Details and upgrades like our elasticated waistband with branded grommets, leg vents, interior pocket, graded inseams, pocket facings, and printed liners / pocket bags are what set us apart from the market. I also love designing different types of Mix n’ Match styling within our Men’s and Boy’s collection. All Paulsun product is designed to coordinate between the Men’s and Boy’s creating endless opportunities for customers to create their own looks. Looks that the entire family is going to love. Looks that are fun to wear, like our Men’s Collection embroidered Sea Forever Ship paired with our Boy’s allover anchor print. All that, coupled with the fact that were able to help support some amazing charities, keeps us fully inspired.
What are you planning to have for sale at ScrantonMade Holiday Market?
Paulsun Swim will be showcasing our Men’s and Boy’s swimwear collection. Mix and Match father son styling. We offer Boy’s sizes 2/3, 4/5, 6/7, 8/9, and 10/12 as well as Men’s sizes S-XXL.
Do you have a most popular item or design?
Named after a local legend Mike Snyder, our Snyder style has been a solid performer locally. I think his large following, and support of the Nasser conglomerate have a lot to do with it. Thanks to all of them!
Is there anything else you’d like our readers to know?
I’ll be offering special discounts during the event to anyone who signs up for our mailing list, as well as showcasing our featured charity for this event which will receive a portion of all sales.
