WHAT'S BEHIND IT ALL.

Wakes & Waves is a homegrown business - a lifestyle brand created in 2021 born from what you might've known as Out There Apparel. After a bit of soul search, just this September I decided to change our name to bring us closer to the place that makes us who we are - where we've been meant to be. The goal - still the same, even with a new name - blend a local beach vibe, a unique, weathered style with a distinct handmade element.

Founder: Anthony Capellupo

We're different than many of the brands you might already know. As a growing brand, that means getting creative to bring it all to life. It's rolling up our sleeves, testing on scraps, getting resourceful, thinking outside the box, and innovating the innovated.

BETWEE THE THREADS, LIES A PASSION...

For us, its quality over quantity, care over mere production, and a pride and dedication behind every press, print and stitch.

So, between the threads lies a passion to inspire you to live endlessly by the water's edge - products built with limited waste, no sweatshops, elements from other small businesses, all assembled - if not fully created - by hand. For me, the plan will always be locally built and distinctly made. That's us. That's who we are.  Welcome to Wakes & Waves.

THE DUDE BEHIND IT ALL.

It all starts somewhere. Two and a half years ago, I had my eyes set on Wall Street. Today, I'm on a quest to redefine what it means to be a lifestyle brand - one that's distinctly unique with a local vibe. One that stands for more than just clothing. I didn't plan for the allure of the ticker tape to die, but I felt restless far from the ocean. I knew I had to embrace what made me feel most alive. 

Wakes & Waves as you see it has come to be by learning by doing, riding the wave of trying and failing, inventing, innovating, and purely creating. From the designs on our tees, to the stitches you feel, to our social media and more, my passion to share a lifestyle of living endlessly out there lies behind it all.

It's homegrown manufacturing, designs I start as pencil sketches, and my hands behind each item we offer. So, despite my economics degree, it was my grandmother who taught me the way around the sewing machine, and a love to build that filled in the rest.

I'm not sure what it is about the water, but once its in your blood its tough to get it out of you. So when not building Wakes and Waves, you can probably find me fishing or chasing the sunset somewhere around Long Island. Thanks for being a part of this journey. Go Far. Be Free. Ride your wave - who knows where it could take you.
