HOUSTON - It’s a great time to be a Houstonian. Not only are our Astros in the World Series, but there is a plethora of Astros-centric gear that you can buy to show your H-Town pride. We compiled a list of the most clever shirts you can wear to back the ‘Stros.
Diversity City Clothing Company has a shirt that pays tribute to Houston’s space city legacy and the “Clutch City” nickname. They call it "Crush City" and have an astronaut hitting a baseball on the logo. I mean, what else could you want? We counted a dozen different variations of the shirt that will make any Astros fan the envy of their friends.
PLAY ON WORDS
Being in the World Series is fun. The company EyeFearNoBeer took that and ran with it. From a homage to Kate Upton to its tilt of the hat to Carlos Correa, these creative Astros fans have made some shirts that are getting a lot of attention.
Mitchell & Ness has the rainbow jersey every Astros fan covets. There is a satin jacket that will make any Astros fan shine with pride. And this is where you can get the sweater/jacket that Upton made famous during game 7 of the ALCS. You have to act fast to get this one; once Mitchell & Ness re-stocks it, it sells out in a matter of hours.
When Jose Altuve and Justin Verlander professed their “literal” love of each other, breakingT jumped into action. They quickly made T-shirts that pay tribute to that bromance.
Astros fans love Ric Flair (almost as much as Josh Reddick does). Now you can have a shirt that lets everyone know. The Yankees had the thumbs down. The Astros have the thumbs up.
CALM, COOL & COLLECTIBLE
Running Game Clothing’s shirt game is just as strong as its Instagram game. Some of its shirts are a nod to the Colt 45s and even the Oilers. Another shirt that simply says “Hustle” has been seen on Astros players and other well-known Houstonians.
SUBTLE BUT SASSY
You know they do beer, but 8th Wonder’s merchandise is just as popular. We didn’t see any Astros shirts, but the Astrodome is a reoccurring theme in their gear … and that’s where it all began for the Astros. It’s a good way to send a subliminal message that you are backing the ‘Stros.
BATTY FOR ASTROS
OK, this isn’t a shirt. But we thought it was beyond cool. This company makes bats in the colors of your favorite teams. We think the Astros version is by far the best. Duh.
