We are so pleased to welcome back the Authentic Athlete to the Chamber! The Authentic Athlete, founded in August of 2013, is your home for custom apparel and Darien town pride!
Much of the Youth, High School and Club apparel throughout Fairfield County are supplied by them, including Darien Junior Football League and Darien Soccer Association. The Authentic Athlete is an authorized Under Armour and Adidas team dealer with many more brands to choose from as well. They have an in-store graphics department on hand to help you achieve a custom professional look on high end and affordable items.
In addition to supplying team apparel, the Authentic Ahtlete also serves Darien as the go to place for Blue Wave spirit and leisurewear including sweatpants, hoodies, t-shirts and more. Popular birthday and holiday items include PJ bottoms, modeled here by the DHS athletes. It’s a great birthday gift for a friend, and it’s the perfect look for pajama day. Other items sold at the store include stickers, magnets, hats and flags. Visit the store to see what’s available. (Note: they are closed on Wednesdays and Sundays)
The Authentic Athlete is also committed to supporting the community. They hire Darien High School students as sales associates and to help with the production of the team apparel. They are also a sponsor and supporter of the Darien Bluewave Booster Club.
Please don’t let their name mislead you… You don’t have to be an athlete to order team apparel from the Authentic Athlete! Order your next team spirit wear for your academic teams or clubs, or for band, orchestra or choir. Or how about your next big family gathering (post COVID!)? Grandma’s 80th birthday gathering? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a family t-shirt? Even corporations and small busineses have shown their business pride using Authentic Athlete’s services for their employees.
Schools, churches, and businesses may find their window decal service very handy! Advertise your next event on your storefront window! Celebrate your next milestone with a creative window decal! Contact Rich to find out what your options are!
The Authentic Athlete is also a participant in the Darien Town-Wide Gift Certificate Program.
