Since and only because you asked, try http://bit.ly/southfarmsillinigear Note: Half the proceeds go to Guardians of the Illini, a group that helped stage the powwow the morning of the Homecoming game this year and is continuing efforts to preserve U of I's heritage.

Guys, I cant tell how pumped I am to see this thread pop up. A few friends and myself have recently launched an apparel site. Like last week recently.

We only have launched with 4 shirts right now, but (if you go to site) will see we have plans for more.

Check us out!

Can't understand why it's so hard to find a long sleeve orange shirt with the chief logo, I've found blue long sleeve, orange short sleeve, white, and grey but no orange LS.

Whoa, excellent stuff. Any inside scoop on when the "80s Belong to the Illini" shirt is gonna drop? I think my Dad would love it.

I don't think they are allowed to by the NCAA with player numbers and names on them, anymore.

There are some chinese sites that sell throwback Kenny Battle jerseys, etc. But be careful, some say the colors are more orange and black than orange and blue, etc.

Keep rolling with the "golf school" comedic/ironic type designs. There is definitely a market among college kids. A lot of the types of stuff Barstool does with apparel but Illini specific.

I understand we can't have any numbers or names but just a blank... throwback jersey that our team wears now. I would buy that in a heart beat

Thanks!

Unfortunately probably not till the new year, on the 80s. If you sign up on our site we'll be sending out emails when all the shirts drop, all our new design, etc etc.

But that is the one im most excited about, so hopefully soon.

The University of Illinois is very restrictive about what it will allow, and there are licensing fees that must be paid, approval required by the university’s licensing office, etc. You can google on license holders. The list is fairly short. It’s not cheap to get in the game to put those little CLC hologram stickers and tags on stuff. Universities along with other trademark holders aggressively defend their trademarks. If they don’t, they lose them.

I missed this message earlier but just want to clarify that all of our gear is officially licensed.

As a student when I would make knock off stuff, I was sick of treading that line between it. So when we set about to create Fourth and Kirby we wanted to do it legit. We went through all the processes, did all we needed to do, so we are official like a referee with a whistle.

Anyone know where to purchase custom Illini jerseys or even retro ones?

Id be super interested, kinda off topic to see everyones favorite shirts. Ive scoured the earth for every and all cool illini shirt, be it vintage or modern.

Ive looked high and low for this one and come up with nothing. But I freaking love it.
