About Us 

Thanks for shopping with us at Caribbean Cool Wear.  We appreciate your business and we want you to enjoy our shirts as much as we do.   They're a lot of fun to wear.  Once you try them, we know you will love them too.  When you put on your shirt, it transports you to another time and place.  You can almost feel the island breezes and taste the margaritas!

We import our great tropical shirts from the Rima Beachworld store on the beautiful island of St. Maarten, N.A., in the eastern Caribbean.  What a wonderful, friendly island!

Whether you are stocking up for your next cruise or vacation, or you just want a few nice shirts for Hawaiian Shirt Day on Friday, our store is the place to go for the coolest shirts around.  They're easy to care for, never shrink, fade, or wrinkle, and they really look great.  Try a few and you'll understand why everyone loves them.  We have sizes to fit everyone, from small to 3X.  Our shirts are generously cut and loose fitting.  You'll love the look and so will everyone who sees your shirts. There is simply no other product out there that matches the quality and comfort of an authentic Rima Beachworld shirt.

Our shirts are made from terivoile (pronounced "terry foil") which is a special weave of 100% polyester that looks and feels just like silk, but without the hassles of caring for silk.  Sometimes people think that polyester will be too hot because of their past experiences with other garments made of polyester.  But that's another big difference with terivoile.  This unique weave makes these shirts breathe, which keeps you cool in even the hottest weather.  Remember, people wear these shirts all over St. Maarten, which is a tropical island.  Company co-founder, Jeff, wore his shirts year round in sunny central Florida and always felt cool and comfortable.  You will be amazed at how light and comfortable these shirts are and how nicely they hang.  Why just be cool when you can be Caribbean Cool?  These shirts are hot!

We will work hard for your business and your satisfaction is our number one concern.  Again, we thank you for shopping with us.

Some of our customers have asked about "the shirt lady," the woman you've see at our booth at fairs and festivals.   Company co-founder, Angela, was an attorney and a real estate broker. She was a private pilot with an instrument rating and flew a Cessna 182.  Flying was her passion and husband and co-founder, Jeff, was her most enthusiastic passenger, particularly if golf and/or a good meal was waiting at their destination.

No story "about us" would be complete without mentioning our support staff, Peanut & Lola, both of who diligently toil away in our office as we work.

Update:  We are sad to report that Peanut crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday, March 7, 2010.  Because her support was a big part of getting this business going, Peanut will remain on this page and in our hearts forever.  We thank all of our pet-loving friends for their kind words on our loss.

Update:  We are thrilled to announce that Jezebel joined our staff in January 2012, after being found alone and shivering on a dark and rainy morning outside an isolated office building.  Jezebel has taught us all so much about happiness and gratitude for the simple things in life.  She and Lola have become best buddies!

Update:  We are exceptionally sad to report that company co-founder Jeff passed away the morning of August 4th, 2016, after a long and arduous fight against the complications of diabetes.  His last year had been a particularly difficult one for him and he is finally at peace after losing his incredible battle.  He was a wonderful husband and an even more wonderful father and brother.  He will be missed by everyone in the family.

Update:  We are sad to report that Lola has joined Peanut across the Rainbow Bridge on Monday, October 3, 2016.  Lola had many health challenges over the years but this last one was just too much.  It is a blessing to have had her in our lives for as long as we did.  It is also a blessing to know she is free of pain.  Thank you once again to our customers for all of your kind words.  Lola was 14 years old.

Update: I am exceptionally sad to report that company co-founder and my sister Angela passed away on November 18, 2018. Angela was an amazing person who accomplished all of the goals she set out to do and was the best sister anyone could hope for. She is greatly missed. I took over Caribbean Cool Wear after her passing, as she worked hard to build the business and was passionate about her customers and making sure everyone had a positive experience. I am honored to be able to continue her legacy, as it is very rewarding when I hear from customers who are so happy to have found our shirts. After Angela's passing, Jezebel was adopted by a loving family, where she lived a happy life until her passing a few years ago.
