From the moment your browser lands on the Homage Clothing home page you feel like you’ve stepped through a portal into the past. Music plays as black and white images of famous sports stars and their legendary moments flash on the screen. While you’re enjoying the nostalgia check out Homage’s about page. As you might have expected their M.O. is to:

“turn back the clock with shout outs to eclectic moments and personalities in sports, music, politics and popular culture. From Larry Bird to Kris Kross, our tees tell stories of triumph, individualism and hustle, preserving the old school and creating new legacies. Pay Homage.”

You gotta love the clever marketing strategy: “Pay Homage.” What would you be paying for though? Check out these example shirts:

pistol

Anyone who’s ever been on a basketball court has probably heard of Pistol Pete (Ok, that’s probably an exaggeration, but the guy is pretty famous). I’m a big fan of the print with the pistol tilted over the basketball displaying his number of career points above the barrel. This shirt is a good example of Homage’s style when it comes to sports figure shirts.

rubiks

This shirt is a perfect example of their efforts in the category of vintage style pop culture elements. Again, who hasn’t ever tried to solve a rubik’s cube? The product description supplies the little known fact that as of January 2009 350 million cubes have been sold and the rubik’s cube is the world’s top-selling puzzle game.

michigan

Another type of shirt you’ll find an abundance at Homage is shirts that are in support of specific states and cities. With this shirt, and the description given next to it Michigan and its beautiful landscape, who wouldn’t “Say yes to Michigan?”

Check out this cool, vintage style t-shirt company and decide for yourself whether or not you want pay homage.
