Did you know that we got our start selling shirts that were licensed by the Ohio State University? That's right, our first shirt was the Ohio State Sweater Vest T-Shirt. For those not as familiar or too young to remember Coach Jim Tressel, this was a shirt which made it look like you were wearing a sweater vest and tie - just like Coach Tress! While we no longer have a license with OSU, our pride for the Buckeye State has only grown. From Columbus to Cleveland to Cincinnati to Dayton and everywhere in between, we have something special for everyone that calls Ohio their home.
