Houston, home of the players and pimps and syrup of the non-maple sort, you’ve been getting quite a lot of attention lately.
We were the envy of Drake fans around the world with our own appreciation weekend from the Canadian rapper and Beyoncé has been reppin’ the H-town harder than she ever has before (H-town Vicious!). Business Insider has bestowed our city with the title of “Best City in America” and of course, we had our own list of 8 Things to Appreciate About Houston. Everyone’s hands has been throwing up the H and our chests are swelling with pride to live here. And why not? Houston’s really is awesome in it’s own right!
So how does one show pride for this great city without getting permanently marked with Houston insignia or putting out free concert with lots of musical superstars? A nice comfy t-shirt! Makes for awesome Christmas gift ideas too. Here are some of the best shirts you can buy to show your Houston Pride:
1. “It’s Okay To Love Houston” Tee
Some people in our city give other flack for loving Houston but it’s totally ok to love the H. Available for men, women and kids at Hello Lucky in store (1025 Studewood St.) or online.
2. “HTown Legends” Tee
Rep some of the greatest names in Hip Hop like DJ Screw, Pimp C and Z-Ro with this awesome shirt from Thrd Coast Apparel. I’ve been seeing the guys behind this Houston-based clothing company a lot and they even gave me a free koozie once. Much respect to their hustle!
3. “20/20” Tank
It’s not hard to SEE why we love Houston so much. Loving this unique design by Joey & Jaime.
4. “Home Town” Tee
Wherever you are in the world, you can always rep your hometown with this clean tee from The Republic Clothing Company.
5. Neighborhood Varsity Tees
Show your pride for some of Houston’s beloved neighborhoods like Montrose, The Heights, Meyerland or Oak Forest. Each shirt has a corresponding charity organization that receives $3 from every sale with donations going to Houston Rescue & Restore Coalition, Seven Acres Jewish Senior Care Services or Communities in Schools Houston. Nice! Choose your hood here.
6. “Clutch City” Tee
Running Game Clothing have tons of nicely designed sport themed tees for men and women that would please any Houston sports team fanatic…or non-sport enthusiasts like myself.
7. “90s HTown Champs” Tee
And of course we have a shirt only our true Houston Rockets fans would understand. Get it from HTown Classics.
8. “Mattress Mack Is My Spirit Animal” Tee
You probably can’t wear this anywhere outside of Houston but you have to admit, this is pretty awesome. Houstorian has some pretty nice stuff!
9. “Miss Third Ward” Tee
Contrary to ignorant media beliefs, Beyoncé was not throwing up mysterious Illuminati signs…she’s reppin’ for Third Ward! And now you can too. Cop this tee on her website.
10. “Skyline” Tee
This list full of Houston love wouldn’t be complete without an appearance from FYHA! So many dope designs to choose from but I’ve always been fond of this one.
So readers, will you be coping any of these shirts? If you do, let us know below or on any of our social media sites!
