The Official Story of Clothing Brand Tropical Seas Clothing

Tropical Seas Clothing was established in 2017, inspired by a pivotal moment during a spearfishing expedition with a close friend. On this fateful journey, our founder, Tyler Blendowski, was deeply moved by the distressing sight of extensive pollution in what should have been a pristine environment. This jarring encounter left an indelible mark on Tyler's conscience, compelling him to take action. It was from this moment of environmental awakening that the vision for Tropical Seas Clothing was born.

Meet our first customer...

Vincent Patrick Ansetta, at 68, made the very first purchase at Tropical Seas Clothing. His determined "my way or the highway" attitude was matched only by his kindness. Vincent had a knack for brightening days, cherishing every dog he met, and enjoying his 99-cent cigars. His purchase sparked hope, driving us forward six years later. Vincent, beloved grandfather of our founder Tyler Blendowski, passed peacefully in 2021, leaving us with cherished memories. We dedicate our past successes and future dreams to his memory, forever grateful for his inspiration
