7 UT Rockets Gifts You Won’t Find in the Bookstore

by Molly Joyce

The Jupmode team absolutely loves the University of Toledo. We hold official licenses from several midwestern universities, but there’s nothing like our bond with the UT Rockets.

First of all, we’re located right here in the City of Toledo.

We serve the entire midwestern United States with regional and school-themed apparel—but good old Toledo is home.

Not only are we right around the corner from campus, but we also have a staff full of UT alums. When it comes to our University of Toledo gear, we’re not just imitating. This is our hometown school, and it shows.

Doing some gift shopping? Treating yourself? Step past the basic bookstore fare and make your way down to one of our two Jupmode retail locations in Toledo. Or, order online from our extensive collection of UT apparel.

Let’s highlight a few of our favorite University of Toledo clothing designs:

  • U of Toledo Vintage Rockets Shirt
  • Toledo Rockets Tie-Dye Sweatshirt
  • Toledo Rockets Color Block Quarter Zip
  • Toledo Rockets Tie-Dye Sweatpants
  • TOL-EDO Long Sleeve Shirt
  • Toledo Old English Hoodie
  • The University of Toledo Corded Cropped Crew

1 - U of Toledo Vintage Rockets Shirt

gray and gold vintage-style University of Toledo Rockets t-shirt

No, this shirt isn’t 20 years old. And we didn’t add a thrift store wing to our business. Rather, this vintage gray and gold Toledo Rockets shirt brings back a classic UT logo design.

Under the gold, all-caps TOLEDO lettering, this shirt features the old-school rocket logo that was used between 1968 and 1995.

The UT nickname has been “the Rockets” since 1923, when a sportswriter first used the word to describe the high-flying football team. In 1968, the first official Rocky the Rocket mascot appeared, along with the retro rocket logo featured on this vintage tee.

After nearly 30 years in use, in 1995 the University switched to the more modern-looking rocket design that we know today. However, the original 60s-style rocket will always have its place.

Now that you’ve learned some University of Toledo history, it’s time to score some retro UT swag.

This unisex fitted shirt is a tri-blend of cotton, polyester, and rayon. It’s ultra-soft, stylishly form-fitting, and provides a unique retro look when it’s time to rep your school colors.

2 - Toledo Rockets Tie-Dye Sweatshirt

One part classy, one part cozy: the Toledo Rockets Quarter Zip is ready to put in work from the couch to the classroom.

With a 60% cotton and 40% polyester blend, you get a nice mix of softness and athletic versatility. Soft and stretchy material, snazzy block colors, and a fashionable fit—what more could we ask for from a sweatshirt?

The mock neck quarter-length zipper creates a folded collar. The classy neckline adds just enough sophistication to help you get away with rocking this super comfy sweatshirt in moderately formal settings.

4 - Toledo Rockets Tie-Dye Sweatpants

What’s better than a tie-dye sweatshirt? A full tie-dye sweatsuit, that’s what.

Along with your UT Rockets blue tie-dye sweatshirt, complete the outfit with these super comfy sweatpants.

The tie-dye print is gorgeous, blending light and dark blues in a dreamy, wavy pattern. It’s an abstract design, but if you get lost staring, you might find some ocean vibes or a few floral arrangements.

These officially licensed UT pants have everything you need for a cozy fit: ribbed ankle cuffs, back pocket and jersey lined hand pockets, and an elastic waistband with a flat drawcord.

5 - TOL-EDO Long Sleeve Shirt

Toledo provides plenty of long-sleeved shirts for weather that’s cool enough for long sleeves, but not so cold that you want to be all bundled up.

The perfect gear for such weather is a tri-blend long sleeve tee. The combo of cotton, polyester, and rayon creates a material that’s soft, breathable, and flexible.

This cozy long sleeve shirt presents midnight blue and gold block lettering in a chant-like TOL-EDO formation. It’s perfect for any Rockets fan who likes to rep their colors loud and proud.

6 - Toledo Old English Hoodie
