Sweater season is upon us, and the newest brand on SWELL upped the Ugly sweater game to epic proportions. Sadly, SWELL sold out of these classic cuts, but we have others here and we’re stoked they killed it in the Shark Tank. Co-founder Nick Mortson breaks it down.
SWELL: First off, Is this Shark Tank show the real deal? Or another phoney reality TV show?
Tipsy: YES IT WAS VERY REAL, WE WERE IN THERE FOR OVER AN HOUR AND THEY ASKED EVERY QUESTION ANY NORMAL VC WOULD ASK.
