Toronto pair behind ‘Brokinis’ swing Dragons’ Den exposure
The two Toronto guys who made man-bathing suits fashionable are laying it all out for the panel on Dragons’ Den.
Chad Sasko and Taylor Field caught the eyes of the TV show’s investors after selling out inventory when they launched their one-strap bathing suits — “Brokinis” — for men this past summer, according to BlogTO. The episode was filmed in August and will air Nov. 26.
“Brokinis went viral and then a couple days later, one of the producers from Dragons’ Den reached out to us about coming on the show,” Field told the media outlet.
“We were still new and just launched and we didn’t think we were ready to pitch on Dragons’ Den. But we decided to go for it. We thought it would be fantastic life experience to say we pitched on Dragon’s Den.”
The two business partners previously told the Toronto Sun that they wanted a change in the way men’s bathing suits looked — something fun and daring, which took some confidence to wear.
“We started going to a lot of bachelor parties during our 20s and with each bachelor party, things got crazier with costumes and suits that we were wearing,” Field told the Sun.
