When I’m searching for t-shirts I’m always looking for something a little different that you don’t see at every shop in the mall. Recently I came across ByGone Brand. Based out of Chicago this shop specializes in nostalgic tees. Prints that will take you back to a better time.
“Bygone Brand was founded in Rockford, Illinois in 2013 by Keith & Amy Watson (with the invaluable help from Mom & Dad). The first Rockford Line of t-shirts featured beloved brands from Rockford’s past. Since Amy is originally from St. Louis, we started work on creating nostalgic designs she remembered and loved growing up. Plans are always in works to bring out new designs from our current city lines and also adding new cities down the road.
Some big box stores carry retro/vintage t-shirts of big corporate brands. There are also local t-shirt companies that create community-centric designs & sayings. We love them all, but what we really wanted was a t-shirt with the local aspect and the retro/vintage logo of the cool places we remember growing up. Bygone Brand was born.
So join me as we go back in time with ByGone Brand and help this shop support its local history by clicking the link below!
