Whether you’re a bandwagon fan or just want some new threads to celebrate the playoffs, we’ve got options! There’s Phillies clothes for kids, throwback fans, trend-seekers, and everyone in between. So get your red on, tell Alexa to play “Dancing on My Own,” and GO PHILS!

Shibe Vintage Sports

Leading off, we’ve gotta put the shop actually named after the Phils’ old ballpark (a holdover from the A’s, you might know it better as Connie Mack Stadium) in the first position. Earn some old-school cred with a shirt taking it back to the Whiz Kid days, or just back to the ’70s and ’80s when they shook the Vet to its concrete bones. Whatever your golden Phillies age, it’s worth a visit to this Midtown Village shop, where you’ll even find seats from Shibe Park to get you feeling nostalgic. And for all you Main Liners, they just opened a second location in Wayne.

South Fellini’s irreverent, retro-themed Philly stuff has just the bite we need to express our true, scrappy selves. Whether you’re proclaiming your love for Wawa or the citywide special, you just can’t go wrong with the East Passyunk shop’s designs, and this throwback Phils maroon-and-blue “Philadelphia Versus The World” tee is no exception. You don’t get to be “world fucking champions” without taking on the world, after all.

Started by three brothers who, according to their website, “grew up in Delco and were raised on a steady diet of Wawa hoagies, Pica’s pizza, and Rita’s wooder ice,” Phillygoat’s hometown pride is as endearing as their graphics are eye-catching. We particularly love this Bryce-inspired “Hair Flow & Bubble Blow” design, available for both adults and kids. And since we’ll always have a soft spot for Harry K, their “High Hopes” hoodie is another fave.
Available online.

For the disgruntled pessimist in all of us, Pink Bike Ralph pays homage to Alex Bohm’s Best of Philly-winning gaffe. To catch you up, Bohm was having a sloppy game, and the cameras caught him saying what could clearly be lip-read as … well, you see the shirt! Anyway, we all had a good laugh, and the Phils are doing just fine now, so bygones. Though this shirt is also appropriate should things fall apart, so, either way … it’s a nice shirt.
Available online.

Sew Much Cooler

Skirts for little ones and reversible jumper-style dresses for even littler ones! Lindsay Gradel’s handmade creations use Phillies-print fabric with logos through the years (they’ve even got Phil and Phillis on there!), so you don’t have to sacrifice cuteness for team spirit.
Available online and at Serendipity, 8506 Germantown Avenue, Chestnut Hill.

For Phillies clothes that are both stylish and sustainable, check out East Passyunk’s N.R.S. Boutique, where Nicole Rae Styer reworks vintage tees with alterations, bleach-dying, and more techniques that make them one-of-a-kind. Her creations sell out quickly, so if you see something you like at the shop (or on her Instagram), don’t think twice. You can also bring your own well-loved gear in for custom alterations to make them into something new.

Mitchell & Ness started here in 1904 and have been going strong for decades selling authentic vintage jerseys and other apparel. They’ve got plenty of powder-blue and maroon throwback threads (including this fabulous 1980 World Series fleece), satin jackets if you’re really feeling spiffy, pricy authentic jerseys, and many more options spanning the eras.

Artist Paul Carpenter’s hand-drawn homage to Bryce Harper is full of details, moments, and the Philly skyline for some extra hometown love. You can also grab Carpenter’s Phanatic design (look closer and you’ll see plenty of Philly landmarks) on both adult tees and baby onesies on his website and at Philadelphia Independents.
Philadelphia Independents, 35 North 3rd Street, Old City.

Dye Hard Fan

Stay cozy and stylish during those nighttime games with Dye Hard Fan’s “Fightins” tie-dye crewneck sweatshirt, and carry your essentials with their ballpark-compliant (CBP will take your backpack and not think twice about it!) see-through “High Hopes” crossbody bag. Buy your Phillies gear on Dye Hard Fan’s website, or check their Instagram to find them at local makers’ markets.
Online and at local markets (see Instagram schedule).

Three cheers for efficiency — this shirt encourages minimalism by offering itself up for a higher purpose. Your simple red tee volunteers as tribute to be a rally towel, so let’s hope the Phils give you reason to pop that thing off this week! If superstition makes you afraid to even suggest you’re going to have something to cheer about, Tanner Lowry has more designs for you, from a stylized 215 tee to a vintage-style rendering of the Vet and beyond.
