The Best of Cleveland - Show of Pride

If you love Cleveland, you can now go from wearing your heart on your sleeve to wearing it on your shirt. Rusty Waters Apparel has created a comfy and catchy T-shirt line with prints such as “The Real Windy City,” featuring our skyline and Old Man Winter blowing in from Lake Erie, and a more provocative antisuburbia shirt that downtown dwellers will want to snap up. And, in case you have a tender spot for a couple other cities, Rusty Waters also makes T-shirts supporting Youngstown and Pittsburgh. “Our goal is not to make money but to get people thinking about the nuances and history of their city and not take it at face value,” says co-founder Adam Chizmar. Our personal favorite, “I Heart CLE,” doesn’t feature those sappy hearts you used to doodle on your notebooks in grade school but a realistic, blood-pumping organ that leaves no doubt about your love for C-Town.
