Wilton native helps turn adventure into apparel

Roger Williams University grad Madison McCormack joined forces with two of his RWU , adventure enthusiasts, Charlie Schaefer of Wilton and Paul Bowlin of Westport, to form the adventure-based clothing line Only New England, also known as ONE.

ONE is an original apparel company that is built on the idea of creating a relationship between consumers and apparel by providing adventure- based designs inspired by remote locations in New England.

The ONE team says their goal is to establish a relationship with the consumer, as well as a bond to real life experiences – a story behind each print.

ONE sells exclusively through their website, but Bowlin said the team has a long term goal of opening retail shops in New England resort towns like Newport and Cape Cod.

In the midst of the summer heat, ONE just released their summer line of designs on T-shirts, with more women’s apparel is in the pipeline. Pricing on Ts and Sweatshirts range from $22.99 to $37.99 with discounts for first time buyers.
