Rep 704: Five local fashion brands that scream Charlotte pride

Lovers of Charlotte, put your bodies in some 704-branded gear and support local designers while you’re sporting city pride. These five shops have you covered (literally).

davidgordon20’s RedBubble shop – David Gordon is a graphic designer in Mooresville selling Charlotte cityscape-branded tees, phone cases and posters on RebBubble, an online marketplace for independent designers.

Docklands – This duo is responsible for those killer Charlotte neighborhood screen prints you see around town and that iconic heart crown logo tee. They’ve also got neighborhood-specific tees for Elizabeth, Plaza Midwood, Wesley Heights, NoDa and Dilworth. Need.

Honor Roll Designs – Basketball fans will appreciate the 1992 Charlotte Hornets honor roll tee (or tank). If you can’t list off the names of players from more than two decades ago, maybe just go with the QUEEN CITY tee (or tank). Pro tip: They make custom tees. I got one with all my cats’ names on it.

Queen City Gear – This new shop has everything from mugs to aprons along with some cool new t-shirt designs. My pick? The Queen of the South tee and the Panthers, Hornets, Knights, OH MY! tee because it kills all my sports birds with one stone.

704 Shop – I have only two stickers on my laptop (because I don’t really like stickers on my laptop) and they are the Agenda logo and this logo. Nothing else. They put it on hats and shirts and also have some other cool non-704 designs.

So go forth and get branded. It’s good for the city.
