Name: Charlie Roth and Owen Schnaper, Founders of Salmon Cove

The Stats: In Chicago since graduating college, both are from Wilmette, IL.

Why They Love Chicago: Chicago’s incomparable summer for baseball games, golf, the beach, boating, and street festivals.

Adopting the mantra of “salmon swimming against the current to return home again”, Salmon Cove’s founders and Chicago natives Charlie Roth and Owen Schnaper left their jobs in the financial world to launch an apparel line for men and women looking for sharp and timeless designs. Grounded in their Midwestern roots, Roth and Schnaper believe that you don’t have to be from the East Coast to appreciate classic preppy apparel and began their own journey to create a distinctive apparel line that offers color, comfort, and convenience. Salmon Cove’s line features men’s and women’s polo shirts, men’s and women’s sweaters, men’s button down shirts and tote bags.
