I have never heard of Hittsburgh clothing until this weekend.
Hittsburgh™ – more than a label, more than a brand, more than the legendary city of champions. It’s a state of mind. It’s an attitude, a swagger, a confidence that was born of pride in a hard day’s work, a resilient spirit that knows no other way but to get back up in and face of whatever may try to knock us down. From the bite of winter wind off the rivers, to chains on a factory gate, we survive and we thrive. Hittsburgh™ – is something that you carry in your heart no matter where you live or where you go. It’s a part of who you are and you a part of it. Forever. The city made of steel, the people made of heart… Hittsburgh™
I actually kinda like that.
Here are some of their products featured on their Facebook page as photographed by Sean Davies:
Everything has a 92 on it and James Harrison’s signature, so I guess he has officially endorsed them.
Also, endorsed by Lukey as these images from a Steelers Hittsburgh tailgate show:
We either have the coolest mayor of any major metropolitan city, or the most poorly advised.
Also, no, the irony is not lost on me that the desription of their business is all factory gates and chains and steel and hard work and sweat and tears and blue collar and gritted teeth, but their featured images are all basically, well, stripper wear.
But in their defense, strippers sweat too.
(h/t to the two guys that sent it to me. Lost the emails in the abyss of my inbox)
