4 Must Have's for your Spiritwear Collection

Spiritwear never goes out of style, since hoodies, shirts and hats are a staple at almost every school or corporate store. People love to show they belong to—and support—a community. If you are a small business, gym, restaurant/bar, or non profit business, we can help you put together the ultimate Spiritwear collection with trendy items for fans of all ages. Staying "in the know" with on-trend apparel and accessories that appeal to most everyone sets you apart from your competitors, so don’t wait get started.

It’s never too early to plan your collection.

Below is our "starter" four-piece kit, including shirts, a hoodie, and a laid-back dad cap in lots of versatile colors. These items appeal to all ages. We’ve got product recommendations from brands you know and love, along with how we'll custom-decorate these products with your logo, tagline, or custom artwork.

Ringer Tee

Always a fan favorite, the Varsity Ringer or Football Jersey Tee (the name varies by apparel brand) kicks it with a retro-inspired look that appeals to K-12 and collegiate age groups. If your non profit (ie. a school) is searching for a different t-shirt style for your Spiritwear collection, adding a colorful Ringer Tee is a great way to change things up. You can create a vintage look and feel by adding a distressed design or mascot on the front of the shirt.LAT Football Jersey Tee 6937


We like LAT’s short-sleeve Football Fine Jersey Tee, made of soft combed ringspun cotton/polyester, with two contrast stripes on each sleeve. This Ringer style comes in a variety of colors combos, including Vintage Burgundy/White, Vintage Green/White, Vintage Hot Pink/White, Vintage Purple/White, Vintage Royal/White and more. LAT is a great brand to turn to for coordinating companion and unisex sizes for infants, toddlers, children, women—to build the ultimate sideline family fan gear grouping for your team!


This retro baseball shirt’s unique look and versatility make it one of the most popular activewear styles around. The sleeve design offers full range of motion for wearers, making it a comfortable shirt to wear. The baseball shirt can also be used as a layering piece, and offers multiple color options for non profits and events because of the two-tone sleeve/body look.

Next Level Raglan Triblend 6051

One of our favorite baseball raglans is Next Level’s Unisex Triblend Three-Quarter Sleeve Raglan. The side seams, curved hem and soft triblend fabric offers a retail look and feel—and makes this Spiritwear style an easy cross-functional option for most organizations. Next Level’s raglan style comes in lots of color combos, like Vintage Red Sleeves/ Heather White Body, Vintage Pink Sleeves/Heather White Body, Purple Rush Sleeves/Heather White Body, Heather White Sleeves/Vintage Black Body and more. 

We like this shirt’s relaxed unisex fit, which makes it gender- and size-inclusive, as well as multi-generational to fit your whole community. Plus, due to the shirt’s contrast coloring and raglan shoulders, you’ve got multiple design options, making it a popular Spiritwear choice for folks who want to stand out. We can create both retro looks or crisp, full-color graphics on the front and back of the shirt.

Heads in Hoodies

From what we’re seeing in the marketplace, fleece hoodies continue to be the top-selling style in Spiritwear apparel. It’s no surprise, since hoodies are the most versatile style for all types of non profits, businesses, clubs, and gyms. Hands-down, lightweight hoodies are a great layering piece that you can wear year-round, no matter where you live, coast to coast. 

Independent Pigment Hoodie PRM 4500

We love Independent Trading Co.’s Unisex Midweight Pigment-Dyed Hooded Sweatshirt. These appeal to communities who enjoy the fashion-forward retail vibe, which continues to be popular. You’ve got lots of real estate on hoodies for text and logo graphics, on the front, back, and sleeves.

For Pops

The easiest Spiritwear add-on and the most essential accessory is a hat. But, the market offers so many options! Work with Odom Design Company to shortlist a couple of hat styles for you.

We really like the Dad cap style because it appeals to kids, teenagers and adults for a few reasons: it's been around a long time (since the 70's) and a lot of celebs and music artists are wearing them these days. Dad hats are more structured, so they fit your head better. They also have a curved brim that frames your face well and protects your eyes from sun glare. All around, dad caps are stylish, comfortable, and come in lots of colors and patterns to match any Spiritwear program. 

Valucap VC300A

We like ValuCap’s Adult Bio-Washed Classic Dad’s Cap, an unstructured, six-panel, low-profile style made from 100% bio-washed chino twill. We think this dad cap is one of the most versatile headwear options out there, again because it appeals to all ages and genders. You might even venture to say this is the spiritwear style for anyone and everyone, especially since it comes in a variety of colors, tricolors and patterns. It features colorways like Baby Blue, Light Pink, Cardinal, Neon Green, Texas Orange, White/Red/Navy, Gray/Royal/Charcoal, Pink Camo, Tan Camo, and more. You can even get caps with contrast stitching in Brown/Stone Stitch, Navy/Stone Stitch and Olive/Stone Stitch. 

Many other aesthetics are equally popular for Spiritwear options: beanies, snapback truckers, visors, and bucket hats. No matter what cap style you choose, you can add an eye-catching logo or mascot to the front panel, with embroidery, 3-D puff stitching or a patch.

Get Your Collection Ready Now

As you begin sourcing items for your custom apparel program or event, we hope this ultimate Spiritwear collection gives you some great ideas. The products we’ve chosen have a wide variety of colorways and plenty of room for standout decoration (which is super-important for Spiritwear!). Staying "in the know" with on-trend apparel and accessories that appeal to most everyone sets you apart from your competitors, so don’t wait get started.
