Steel City Cotton Works adorns the torsos of men and women in crew-neck tees and hooded sweatshirts printed with Pittsburgh-inspired messages. The soft blue Friend shirt ($24.99) quotes the amiable slogan found on vintage Pennsylvania license plates, and the yellow letters on the gray PGH tee ($24.99) allow patrons to pay simple tribute to the City of Bridges and show hometown loyalty without carrying bronzed phonebooks. Customers can give block-lettered nods to the defunct Pittsburgh Condors basketball team ($24.99) or give coworkers' brains friendly warnings with comfy, heavyweight Zombies hoodies ($44.99), which ward off cold like a cease-and-desist letter to Jack Frost.
Steel City Cotton Works
Steel City Cotton Works plasters Pittsburgh's trademarks across the chests of loyal locals. Some of its cozy cotton T-shirts depict signature Pittsburgh attractions, including the incline and the Civic Arena, which has hosted The Beatles, Elvis, and Muhammad Ali under its retractable roof. Others pay homage to the city’s starring role as Gotham City in The Dark Knight Rises. The Braddock T-shirt, meanwhile, contributes to the Second Chance Pittsburgh campaign, which channels 100% of the proceeds into restoring nearby Braddock, PA.
