For Immediate Release

ATLANTA – Cigar Life Guy™, a leading cigar lifestyle brand has launched an exclusive online store featuring Cigar Life Guy branded apparel.  Items will include t-shirts, hats, polo shirts, outerwear, and more.  The premium quality apparel will all be expertly embroidered in the United States by the Queensboro Shirt Company.  Products will be a combination of higher end designer labels and more affordably priced items.  Queensboro and its award-winning customer service team will also handle all the fulfillment.

Additionally, Cigar Life Guy will donate 100% of net profits from the sales of its merchandise to Operation: Cigars for Warriors, a leading cigar charity (501(c)3 status) that facilitates providing cigars to US Troops while on deployment.

Dave Arlinghaus, Founder of Cigar Life Guy, said, “I’ve received numerous inquiries from the cigar community asking where they could purchase Cigar Life Guy gear.  The selection of Queensboro as a fulfillment partner addresses my key criteria: They produce outstanding quality products.  I love wearing them myself. Their customer service is extremely strong.  Importantly the pricing to the end consumer will represent a very good value. Finally, the icing on the cake is being able to earmark all the profits I would have received to an outstanding cigar charity, Cigars for Warriors.”

Operation: Cigars for Warriors Founder Storm Boen said, “Cigars are the single most requested item by deployed troops, both men and women. A cigar provides a moment of relaxation in the middle of a stressful situation and we are excited Cigar Life Guy has chosen to support our mission.”

Queensboro Shirt Founder Fred Meyers said, “As someone who also enjoys an occasional cigar, I can appreciate what Dave is trying to do with his store.  We are delighted that he has chosen us as a partner for this project.  We love the logo and nothing would make us happier than to see Dave sell a ton of it.  When you are a long way from home, there is nothing like a good cigar to put everything in proper perspective for you.  It is the least our service folks deserve.”
