After more than a year of us bullying our friends over at Homefield Apparel and West Virginia University’s trademark licensing department on Twitter — with a little begging and pleading thrown in here and there — our work has finally paid off.
Homefield is on the home stretch of Big New Saturday, Season Two, where they launch a new school on their site every Saturday for 16-weeks straight and they’re finally launching a West Virginia Mountaineers collection with the penultimate release of the season.
The first 14 weeks of Season Two have given us some incredible designs for Notre Dame, LSU, Texas, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, Miami, Georgia, Washington, Boise State, and UNC, but now it’s time for us to get the full Homefield treatment.
Homefield’s specialty is tapping into what a school’s fans care about and identify with. They go through each school’s archives and history to find the best logos, mascots, memories and stories to tell. From top to bottom, the collection is excellent. You could order any three things from the store randomly and you wouldn’t be disappointed.
The WVU collection features 16 designs across hoodies, t-shirts, tank tops, and crewneck sweatshirts, including a fantastic new spin on the old lounging hillbilly design to make it more modern and fit better with the school’s branding.
As a personal aside, I own somewhere around 30 shirts and sweatshirts from Homefield and can attest to the fact that these are without a doubt the most comfortable t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies you will ever wear. Homefield’s products are printed on high quality garments with extreme comfort in mind. Your body will thank you.
It’s also never too soon to get the jump on your Christmas shopping, birthday shopping, or wedding gift shopping for the Mountaineer fans in your life. Introduce them to the soft offerings from Homefield and they will forever be indebted to you.

One final piece of information that you need to know is that Big New Saturday is also a competition. Homefield keeps track of how many shirts West Virginia fans are buying and they’ll give updates throughout the day comparing us to the other fanbases that have come before.

You can see that both Pitt and Virginia Tech are on the low end of the sales chart, which means we shouldn’t have any problem blowing right past their total and making a run at the Top 5.
Again, here is the link to buy these wonderful t-shirts and sweatshirts that will make all of your friends jealous...unless they buy some too. And because we, and The Good Brand, love you, you can get 15% off your first purchase from Homefield with code SMOKINGMUSKET at checkout.
