The measure of a man begins within himself.

Our story is one of inspiration, humor,
and unwavering commitment to the values that define us.

Our founder’s journey
in creating El Guapo Apparel has been nothing short of being an amusing
inspiration! Mike (nickname for Miguel) was raised by two amazing parents who
instilled in him the values of familia, hard work and respect, but even with their love
and support, he still struggled with his confidence. That is until he met the
love of his life and her endearing grandmother, Abuelita. Abuelita had a soft
spot for Mike and would ask, “Adonde esta el guapo?” (Translation: “Where is
the handsome one?). After some research he found out that el guapo
meant awesome, good-looking and hardworking. Words he used to describe men
like his dad, men of integrity. 

Fast forward to a few Christmases ago
when Mike's wife gifted him a pair of “El Guapo Esta Aqui” socks she customized
as a playful response to Abuelita's question. At first, he thought it was just
a silly joke, but those socks became like his secret weapon. Every time he put
them on, he felt like he could take on the world! Mike realized that what you
wear has the power to transform how you feel about yourself. He started to make
more intentional clothing choices and carried himself with more confidence. It
wasn't just the clothes, though. It was the feeling of having people believe in
him and he wanted to share that feeling with other men by creating a brand
dedicated to inspire confidence.

Enter EL GUAPO, a celebration of the
hilarious and emotional journey every man goes through to find their
confidence. The name is a nod to Mike's Hispanic heritage, where being called
El Guapo signifies strength, confidence, and admiration.

Every piece of clothing is designed to remind you of your worth and potential. And who knows, maybe one day you'll
even have your own Abuelita asking “Adonde esta el guapo?” Because let's face
it, with El Guapo Apparel, you're sure to be one good-looking, admired guy!
