Expanding Our Line of Great Lakes Apparel
One of the great things about being from Toledo is our proximity to water. Not only do we have the Mighty Maumee River running through town, we have access to many lakes throughout Michigan and Indiana. It's not until you leave the Midwest that you realize how unusual and special this is.
People from Northwest Ohio grew up fishing for walleye and kayaking on the Maumee and spending their weekends at a cottage on a lake. These are the care free summer memories that we cherish most fondly. The water is relaxing, freeing, and brings a peace of mind.
Perhaps the body of water that brings the most enjoyment is only a short trip away from Toledo - Lake Erie. All of the yacht clubs in the Toledo area inevitably lead to the big fresh body of water that collects the Maumee River.
It's hard to go to Put-in-Bay and not see someone else from Toledo. While the local rivers and streams are great for fishing, your summer is not complete until you make a trip to the Lake.
We have always tried to make shirts and clothing that remind people of what makes this area great. Our shirts bring a tinge of nostalgia and happy memories.
That's why we've released new clothing that celebrates our love for the Great Lakes and Lake Erie. For a few years one of our most popular shirts was our 'Great Lakes Great Times' tee. We knew our Lake deserved a more direct acknowledgement of its greatness.
Our new vintage Lake Erie graphic takes us to the lake in spirit when we can't make it there in person. Lake life is a state of mind. Although we can't be there every day in the summer as we'd like to, we can still live like we were.
Our Lake Erie graphic is printed on a soft t-shirts for the hot summer days and a garment dyed sweatshirt for those summer nights by the fire.
One of our favorite sweatshirts this year is our garment dyed crew sweatshirt. It's been a huge hit for us with a simple tone on tone embroidery on the front. We love it so much, we've released two new designs this summer. Our newest pays tribute to the Great Lakes.
While a lot of our designs are Toledo and Ohio specific, we aren't very far from Michigan. In fact, we once had a license with the University of Michigan. We know that many of our customers are proud of Toledo, but love their home in Michigan.
That's why we created our Michigan Great Lakes State shirt. Michigan is the weekend destination for many Toledoans. There are a lot of great reasons to head up north. It could be to explore the Upper Peninsula, visit Detroit or Ann Arbor, or spend a quick weekend at one of the many lakes.
We love the Great Lakes. It's a source of pride for Toledo, Northwest Ohio, and the Midwest. That's why we wanted to create these new items. We think you're going to love them and hope to continue to add to the collection in the future.
