The Home. T – Buckeye Pride

posted by Momo Fali on August 7, 2013

I am a Buckeye born and bred. Even though I would move from this state in a heartbeat if I could get my husband to move west, I would still be, and will always be, a Buckeye. You can be proud of the state in which you were raised and still hate winter. Just sayin’.

Ideally, I would only move away for the cold months – and maybe some of the hot ones – but, spring isn’t bad and fall is just gorgeous around here. It would be hard to be away from September-November because the trees turn fiery, the wind is crisp, and Buckeye football rules all.

In Chicago recently, I was at a group dinner when I was introduced to a man sitting on my right. He asked where I was from and I said, “Columbus.”

He replied, “Columbus…Ohi0?

I nodded and he said, “O-H!”

And I answered, “I-O!”

Then everyone else at the table looked at us like we were crazy.

Don’t judge us! We spell it so we’re not confused with Iowa.

In a few weeks, when football season begins, I will don this shirt from The Home. T and wear it with pride. And, comfort. I boast my allegiance to all things Buckeye in softness. Buttery softness.


At the same time, I’ll be showing my loyalty to my country (every Home. T is made in the U.S.A.) and my family and friends (a portion of profits is donated to Multiple Sclerosis research). I’m covering my bases in one fell-swoop and one very soft t-shirt. Ohioans rock at multi-tasking; we can watch football, drink beer AND milk a cow at the same time.

Where do you consider home? Would you wear it proudly across your chest? See if your state’s shirt is available, here!

Disclosure: I was sent a free Home. T for review. I also disclose that I love this shirt!

    Uh. Awesome?

    Though I wish they made a kids’ shirt, not just a Baby Onesie. I’d get the boys and husband Ohio and I’d be all PENNSYLVANIA REPRESENT. (But also have an Ohio one too because Dual State Citizenship or something.)

    So happy to hear you are loving your Home T!

    Jenna, we’re a growing small business and are adding new sizes slowly. With 50+ designs it takes a little time to ramp everything up as we want to continue making awesome products and providing great customer service!

    Having lived in two different states since leaving Ohio, I can safely say, once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye. But I still cheer for my Kentucky Wildcats in basketball. Sorry.

  • sassymonkey

    I like that they have a Canadian t-shirt. 🙂

  • Kari

    I am also a Buckeye born and bred and most of my family is still there.
    I must have this shirt.
    I knew there was a reason I liked you so much.

    You are so darn cute it is ridiculous. Did I even spell that right?

  • Melisa


    P.S. I say you and I go in on a winter home out west. How about it?

  • Elizabeth

    Being from Texas, of course I would wear the t-shirt. I love the “my y’all I’d authentic” shirt.

    I wish they had kid sizes too.

    I will be getting an Oklahoma shirt for my niece’s Christmas present.

    That shirt rules!! Off to look for one for New Jersey!

    I love this! I always scream OH and want people to answer and I’m not even from there. It must be a midwest thing. I was born in Missouri, but I have to admit my heart belongs to Idaho, where I grew up. And I have been coveting one of these t shirts since I found out about them! They are so cute and such a brilliant idea! It’s on my wish list

    Born, raised and have always lived in Columbus, OH and I literally live only 15 minutes from the “horseshoe”!!! I forever will bleed scarlet and gray!! I love this shirt! Can’t wait for football season to start! GO BUCKS!!

  • Zak

    It is the best, most comfy shirt I own.

    And your state is so much better looking than mine. I live in a square.

  • Kimmie

    LOVE this shirt. Sign me up. And GO BUCKS!!!

  • Michelle

    I could not love this post more and the shirt is awesome!! We were just discussing how football is back in 3 weeks and Tate is old enough for an OSU cheerleading uniform this year. We indoctrinate early in our house.
