Why Students Love Our University of Toledo Clothing

by John Amato

Shortly after we entered the licensed apparel industry, we made it a priority to get a license with the University of Toledo. Being our hometown school, we're proud of the fact that we have maintained the license and kept our line of t-shirts fresh and updated on a regular basis.

As a company with several UT alums, a store in the neighborhood at Cricket West, and our headquarters just 10 minutes away in downtown Toledo, we feel we have a connection to University of Toledo students, graduates, and fans that other clothing companies can't match. If you want licensed Toledo clothing that is made in Toledo and designed by UT alums, we're exactly who you're looking for.

Over the years, we've had many University of Toledo shirts and designs come and go. Sometimes it's hard to believe we've been making UT apparel for nearly a decade.

We're Always Keeping Our UT Rockets Clothing Fresh

One thing we always try to do is keep our University of Toledo apparel fresh and updated. Like many of our designs, our UT graphics are vintage inspired. We love the old Toledo Rocket logo as much as we do the old buildings like University Hall and the Glass Bowl.

With so many Toledo alums on staff, there is a lot of excitement internally each year when we release our new line of Rocket gear. 

Vintage UT Logo Shirt

Last year we released a few new designs on trendy garments that we love. Our UT Blue and Gold tie dye crop top, UT heavyweight crew sweatshirt, and Toledo Rockets color block quarter zip are items that you're not going to find in the University of Toledo bookstore on or off campus . 

The University of Toledo corded crop crew sweatshirt was our most popular new item last year. Women absolutely raved about this garment. It's perfect for fall football games and wearing to class. The garment dyed washed and cropped look make it comfortable and stylish.

University of Toledo Clothing Store

The next time you're shopping for University of Toledo clothing and gifts, think local. Not only do we print all of our apparel in house in Toledo and offer a great online shopping experience, we also have two brick and mortar retail stores in Toledo for you to shop. If you are near campus, instead of going to the old bookstores, you can visit us at Cricket West. Do you work downtown? Shop our Adams Street store. We always have a lot of University of Toledo options on the shelves. 

With students already back to school, we're working hard on new University of Toledo apparel. We have new ideas queued up and ready to go that we know you're going to love. 

Look for an update when they're ready! 

Best Gifts for University of Toledo Students

Holy Toledo! Finding the perfect gift for your Rocket can be a difficult task. We might not be the University of Toledo bookstore, but we do have a wide variety of comfy, cozy, officially licensed University of Toledo apparel and gifts any Rocket will love. 

From the classroom to the rec center to the dorms we have the softest t-shirts and sweatshirts your Rocket can wear all day long. We asked our Rocket Alumni to rank their top 5 favorites to help you!

1. University of Toledo Embroidered Crew 

University of Toledo Embroidered Crew

Our embroidered crews are one of the most popular items in our retail store and one of our most commonly asked for design for Greek Life and other campus organizations. Your future Rocket will love how comfortable and versatile this crew is! From class, to meetings, to lounging around the dorm, your Rocket will be comfy through it all! 

2. Toledo Rockets Tie Dye Sweatshirt

The University of Toledo has so many opportunities to get involved and be active of campus. Whether your future student is going to paint the Spirit Rock, participate in Song Fest, cheer on the football team at Homecoming, or play some games at a tailgate, a comfy t-shirt with a bold sweatshirt is sure to show their school pride! 

3. University Hall Shirt

University of Toledo U Hall t-shirt

University Hall, one of Toledo's most recognizable buildings. U Hall was the first building on Toledo's Campus and is one of the first buildings that people notice. The Bell tower certainly makes it hard to miss! Fun fact, while the Falcons might be the Rocket's biggest rival, the Bell Tower is actually home to peregrine falcons! We can't blame them for wanting to be Rockets too. 

4. University Vintage Logo Crew and Shirt

We love all of the history the University of Toledo has. Through the years their logo has changed a few times. We created this vintage University of Toledo crew and t-shirt for a throwback all Rockets can appreciate. Not only is the design vintage, but these garments are so soft and comfy they'll give you the same feeling as your favorite vintage tee you've spent years breaking in! 

5.  Vintage Toledo Rockets Heavy Sweatshirt

Whether your Rocket is from the Midwest or coming from afar, they should be prepared for some chilly days on campus! While there may be some campus cut throughs to limit your time outside on cold and windy days, there is no avoided some time outside! Your future Rocket will be kept warm all day long with this heavy weight sweatshirt. 

Don't stop here! Some of our most popular UT items are our Rocket Man Shirt, University of Toledo Old English Hoodie, or our TOL-EDO long sleeve t-shirt! Be prepared, once you step foot on any campus event, we can almost guarantee you will hear the TOL call. 

One reason University of Toledo students love our apparel so much is that it is designed and created by UT Alums. There's a special connection we have with the University that is just down Bancroft.
