A US Navy veteran who served in the Vietnam War has set up a clothing company, Apparel by Home Run, which makes stylish performance fishing gear. Eighty-year-old Glen Newell has immense knowledge and a passion for fishing. The company is the result of Newell spending a large portion of his life on the water and his keen eye for performance fishing gear.

Newell fell in love with Louisiana and what the Sportsman's Paradise offered him. Expanding on his affinity for fishing, Newell runs Home Run Charters Fishing & Lodges company in Venice, Louisiana. However, along with being an outdoorsman, Glen possessed a keen eye for stylish performance fishing gear. Therefore, with decades of business experience, he combined his talents and ideas to make his own clothing company.

Fishing always held a special place in Newell 's heart. He believes that protective fishing attire is a necessity, and it must be very attractive for men and women. Armed with a local design team of graphic designers and Louisiana artists, Apparel By Home Run makes a big splash into the waters of performance fishing apparel.

“We create quality, attractive products with high-quality material, UV protection, UPF 50+, moisture-wicking, anti-wrinkle, anti-shrinking, and anti-microbial features, for men and women. Our fully embroidered shirts also share these factors. Our designs are 100 per cent original. Each piece of art is created in-house, by our graphic artists and designers,” the company said.

Newell wasn't handed the opportunity to create businesses, like Apparel By Home Run. In childhood, Newell ran away from home at the age of 15 years old, to escape domestic violence. Before joining the US Navy, he apprenticed under a Mayo Clinic physician, in exchange for food and a roof over his head. After his apprenticeship, Newell attended and graduated from the Balboa Hospital Pharmacy School in California.

In his service, Newell worked on a ship as a pharmacist and provided medication to those in need, during the trials and tribulations of the Vietnam War. When he returned home, Newell built everything he had from nothing, which displayed the American Dream. All he knows is hard work. Even at 80-years-old, he remains relentless with his final business. He works with a passion for everything in fishing, fashion, and community.

Newell is a machine, when it comes to perfectionism and quality. He outfitted his company with workaholic individuals, to power Apparel By Home Run. There's a new fishing apparel company, superior products, a desire to leave its mark, and it's here to stay. In honour of the United States and all those who served to protect its freedom, Apparel by Home Run is hiring disabled veterans.

"Love the shirt, good fit and super comfortable! I've gotten so many compliments on this shirt! Thanks Home Run!" Nathan N, a customer said.

"The shirts and clothes are super comfortable. I live in Mississippi and it gets hot here. It really makes fishing a lot more comfortable. I'm not one for wearing anything typical, these shirts are one-off and look way better than anything else you can buy. The artwork on them is great, just fantastic," TreVante Taliaferro, another customer said. (SV)
