Bull+Moose, a men's neckwear startup, launches with Pro Polo Player as Brand Ambassador Bull+Moose signs champion polo player Brandon Phillips as a brand ambassador to launch men's neckwear company.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Bull+Moose - a maker of high quality bow ties and neckties is pleased to announce its signing of champion professional polo player Brandon Phillips as a brand ambassador and advisor.
Considered one of the worlds most talented polo players, Brandon has captured some of the sport's most coveted trophies. He's won the USPA Silver Cup, the Gold Cup of the Americas, and the C.V. Whiteney Cup. He has also been a finalist in the US Open of Polo.
"Bull+Moose is more than just quality bow ties and neckties. It is all about rugged individualism, joie-de-vivre, and classic style" said Diego Echeverri, CEO of Bull+Moose. "We started this company to create high quality products at a fair price for today's young professional, all while doing good and giving back." Echeverri says that "from the beginning, we wanted someone who represented these ideas and values. Brandon is that person".
Brandon knows a thing or two about charity and overcoming tough odds. At age 14 Brandon was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The doctor's prognosis was six weeks to live. Drawing on his physical strength and positive outlook, Phillips was cancer free after five months of intensive chemotherapy. He continues the fight against cancer by participating in numerous charitable events and sharing the game of polo with children suffering from cancer.
Brandon Phillips has a significant impact in the world of polo but his success also extends outside the game. He represents the sport in fundraisers and humanitarian efforts. Phillips is enthusiastic about the new partnership with Bull+Moose, Inc. "Bull+Moose is a great company that makes gentlemen look good, all while doing good." said Phillips. "Bull+Moose's strategic partnerships with charities focused on helping boys, men and Veterans is really great." Phillips will serve as a face of the company on and off the Polo field.
The B+M look is a mix of classic style with a modern twist and seasonal inspiration. Every tie is handmade and available exclusively through their website. The ties start at just $25.00 with free shipping included. The company is able to make high quality hand made ties at such a disruptive price because they cut out the middleman. Bull+Moose is a small operation of just three people, and very lean. Unlike large fashion labels or companies that make ties, Bull+Moose does not have a high overhead or need to pay licensing fees. This model allows savings to be passed on directly to customers and while still being able to give back to good causes.
The Bull+Moose approach to giving back is unique. Instead of just giving away product like a "Buy One, Give One" model that is popular today, Bull+Moose prefers to support micro loans to under privileged and urban entrepreneurs in the US via their Kiva Lending team on www.kiva.org. By doing so, Bull+Moose does not just give, but helps others support themselves through their own initiative. When the micro loans are repaid Bull+Moose intends to reinvest to help others and keep the cycle going.
