Wondrous Blue is a clothing brand launched in June 2017 that brings out the preppiness in all of us, and adds a twist of culture from the New England area. With every purchase you receive you will not only enjoy the quality and attention to detail in every shirt, but you will also receive a token of our appreciation for joining the Wondrous Blue Crew!
I have always been a man of action; someone that was not worried about taking a risk because everything in life is worth taking a chance for. Even when I thought I was starting too many businesses at once, it was the adrenaline and thought of success that kept me going to make sure every business had a chance to succeed.
Every day I would get congratulatory messages about how everyone was proud of me for doing what I'm doing. It was an amazing feeling. Even getting calls and messages asking, "how can I start a business?", "how can I make shirts?", "what do I need?", "let's meet up to talk about how you got started and what I should do." I was extremely happy to hear that people wanted to hear from me and see what they could do to progress to the state that I was in. It was a great feeling knowing people wanted my help even though I was still learning how to do things correctly myself - it's what made me persistent and focused. I was always excited to teach them what I had learned and share my knowledge. Especially when I would hear it come from life-long friends that I haven't seen in a while - it gave me that extra oomph to just blab all I learned to get them started.
My life-long family friend, my brother, Lucas Salem, was one of those people. He wanted to start a t-shirt business and since I had an established t-shirt printing company, with my good friend Joe Castro, he came to me. It was great to hear that he wanted to meet up and talk about how he should get started and what he should do but we always kept putting it off. Unfortunately, I never got that chance to meet up with Lucas. He passed away due to a tragic car accident before we ever got a chance to talk about the t-shirt company that he wanted to build. I wish every day that I never pushed that date back to meet up because tomorrow is never promised and that is something that we always take for granted. That is how Wondrous Blue was born! People say that in life you die twice; once when we leave this earth and then again when we are forgotten. I will not let that happen! Lucas Salem was a man of the sea, a fisherman, a great and honest person, and a great friend! His memory lives on with Wondrous Blue!
