Want to support the Seattle Seahawks and show your hometown pride but aren’t a fan of garish highlighter colors and dated looking gear? We have you covered.

It is easy to stand out in the crowd with unique pieces that show your 12th man and woman spirit without sacrificing style. Don’t settle for just the usual league-issued gear. Finding original gear is easier than you think.

The Jersey

Local company Nube9 creates custom uniform jerseys that they help you design. For a $100 art fee plus the base jersey price, you can make your own custom team jersey. You can also purchase Nube9’s pre-made designs with no art fee, and adding player names and numbers is included in the price. The jerseys are fully dye-sublimated and made from fabrics milled from post-consumer, recycled plastic P.E.T. bottles.

The “Vintage” Shirt

Factory 43 Seattle Seabird Pullover

Another local business, Factory 43, has one of the coolest Seahawks graphics around. The Seattle Seabirds design is printed on alternative apparel Eco-fleece (50% Polyester, 46% Cotton, 4% Rayon) that is super soft. This vintage-looking design is available in a men’s crewneck and women’s dash pullover. The design is also available on a t-shirt and as an enamel pin. The quick delivery from this company was impressive, as is the quality of product.

The Accessories

New Era 39Thirty Fitted Cap

Goodbye cheesy mesh baseball cap, hello New Era. American label New Era has been manufacturing baseball hats for teams since the 1930s. Their 39Thirty Fitted Seattle Seahawks cap in cool gray is the perfect subtle accessory that has an urban look to it and is available at ASOS.

Want some cool kicks? Brooks Chariot Heritage Running Shoes show team colors strong, and on Etsy you can find dozens of creative pairs of Hawk style, from babies to adults.

Dooney & Bourke has teamed with the NFL for a sweet set of handbags, cross body bags and wallets. Sporting the Seahawks logo in miniature print, these canvas coated pieces have leather trim and come in styles that are easy to throw on before you head to a game or party.

No matter what your personal style, being original just got a little easier. Go Hawks!
