If you think you’ve seen everything in the world of fashion, you’re wrong. Barbell Apparel is a clothing line designed specifically for people with muscular quads. For serious weight lifters like Karl Workman, who created Barbell Apparel, finding pants that fit his physique hasn’t been easy. Think it’s a niche market? Workman raised more than $1 million on his Kickstarter campaign. He’s pitching Barbell Apparel on Shark Tank (November 18).
Barbell Apparel offers athletic fit jeans, chinos, shorts and bathing suits/shorts for men and women. A pair of Barbell jeans or chinos averages $149. As the Barbell Apparel tagline goes: “Either you want quads or you want pants. Now, you can have both.” Shark Tank airs Fridays at 9pm on ABC.
