Proudly donning your team's gear can be tough: college bookstore tees have no edge, wearing a jersey makes you look like the kind of guy who would wear a jersey, and Hulk Hogan hasn't returned your Zubaz. Letting you do it a little classier, Flying Colors.
Miami-based FC removes the need for Starter jackets with lovingly crafted, unique polos for 'Canes & 'Noles crazies; their genesis was when the owner cut up a Heat jersey, patched elements of it onto a polo shirt, and was bombarded by fans who wanted one, and apparently were totally serious. Pima cotton polos have an "updated retro" (slightly more athletic) fit; the burgundy 'Noles job gets patches ("FSU" on shoulder, a Seminole on chest), and "Go Noles" is visible if you dare pop the collar, while 'Canes action comes in either orange or green, with "It's All About The U" under-collar, and a sizable chest patch with a pissed-off Sebastian The Ibis, who's clearly still upset they named him Sebastian. There're UM tees as well, like the "Fade Out" in black with a '70s-ish font "Miami Hurricanes" with a cool diagonal fade-out graphic below, plus non-sport numbers like "Pac-Man", with "fly/ing/col/ors" down the front, printed in Pinky Inky.
Before you know it, FC's gonna be putting out polos and more for other schools, including VA Tech, Wake, NC State, UNLV, AZ State, and the University of Central Florida, whose mascot's named "Knightro" -- which's pronounced exactly like another dude who probably owes you a pair of Zubaz.
