Charles River Apparel, a family-owned business spanning three generations, has been designing stylish and quality apparel for men, women, and children since 1983. What started with a rain jacket has evolved into an extensive line of performance outerwear, polos, rainwear, fleece, workwear, team and spirit, athleisure and more.

Founder Walter Lipsett envisioned a clothing line rooted in the New England ideals of value, commitment, and performance. This dedication to our local heritage has guided us through the years always to produce top apparel pieces capable of withstanding the toughest New England climates while making the most of everyday moments.

At Charles River, we are committed to creating authentic products, provide outstanding service, and helping our customers reach success. We strive to foster a sense of family with our peers through sustainable relationships and compassion within the workplace environment and throughout the community at large. The result of this mission is to enable our customers, and those who wear our products, to reach their fullest potential.
