About Drew:
Drew Clark is the founder and CEO at California Cowboy, a recently launched lifestyle brand whose mission is to leverage style to bring people together in analog. He launched the brand with the High Water shirt in Spring 2015, using the crowdfunding platform on Indiegogo. Hand sewn in California and designed with apres-surf and pool parties in mind, this Hunter Thompson-James Bond inspired reinvention of the cabana suits from the 50’s and 60’s sports original hand painted prints, an innovative blend of terry cloth lining, and a few other conversation starting details.

Prior to launching California Cowboy, Drew worked in the fashion industry for more than 15 years, holding roles in Design and Merchandising at Levi Strauss, Gap Inc, and most recently, Trumaker, a venture backed men’s made to measure start up in San Francisco. He graduated from Georgetown’s College of Arts and Sciences in 2000 with a BA in English, and received his MBA from the University of Southern California in 2010.

California Cowboy has been featured in Women’s Wear Daily, industry blogs Uncrate, Airows, Inside Hook, as well as Brobile. He is currently working on collaborations with a number of influencers and creatives.

The company hired a Georgetown undergrad for its 2016 internship, and is currently developing limited-edition Hoya inspired prints for release prior to the Maui Classic basketball tournament this November.

The High Sierra—an “Apres Ski” focused shirt—is due out this holiday.
