    ISU apparel

    Does anyone else think that the ISU apparel is really below par compared to other schools? Maybe in Ames its a different story, but I don't live in Ames and its honestly hard to find a shirt that isn't your generic 'Iowa State' t-shirt. Doesn't it bother you when you type 'ISU clothing' into google and it comes up with Iowa clothing in the 3 of the top 5 results? Maybe I don't have a clue what I'm talking about but I think that ISU needs to really push the apparel and one very good way to do that is to start a legitimate website based on buying ISU merchandise. Is there a good one that anyone can think of? If so, please let me know.

    Re: ISU apparel

    just googled 'Iowa state football merchandise' and Iowa hawkeyes was mentioned in 6/10 results. Duke was also mentioned in one because for some reason truthaboutduke.com sells ISU apparel.

    Re: ISU apparel

    Try putting quotations around "iowa state". If you google things, it looks at each individual word, so it will pick up the word iowa and give you some Hawkeye stuff. If you put quotes around it, that means you only want things with those two words together, and should minimize your Hawkeye stuff.

    Edit: I just tried it and nothing but ISU stuff came up on the first page for me.

    Re: ISU apparel

    Interesting topic, I have felt the same way about the clothing. I am actually thinking of producing ISU shirts. My product is targeted though. Not everyone may want to buy it. There are some hoops and costs to go through though so maybe this is what holds some people back.

    IMO- The apparel right now is the best it has ever been. Just went to T Galaxy and the Univ bookstore last weekend and spent too much money. Selection is much better there and at Scheels than online but if you look you can find just about anything

    Scheel's in Waterloo is the worst place to buy anything ISU. About 1/4 of the store is Hawkeyes junk. Pretty frustrating trying to find decent clothing around here.

    Gotta agree completely with this. Since I've gotten back to Iowa I decided it was time to get shirts with the new logo. I've bought from both Sheels and T. Galaxy along with Campus Bookstore.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Correction, Scheels in Omaha is the worst. There is 3x as much Texas gear as ISU gear. TEXAS!. They hate Texas here, yet carry loads of their junk. There is almost as much stuff for LSU and North Carolina as ISU.

    I bought a Nike polo from the Rivals fanshop site because I couldn't get anything other than a t-shirt in the Omaha/CB area.

    You were in Ames. Try buying a decent ISU polo/golf shirt outside of central Iowa. You will be severely disappointed.

    The texas junk should go on sale right after their big Nebby game or it might be on sale now due to their last week's fine performance.

    Re: ISU apparel

    I live just north of Dallas in Texas. Obviously I can never find Iowa State clothing here. Lots and lots of Texas, OU, A&M, Tech which you'd expect but also a I see a fair amount of Hawkeye and Nebraska stuff - that's what really hurts!

    I should have specified Scheel's in Jordan Creek Mall. Scheel's in Sioux City is probably much better than Waterloo but the ISU section pales in comparison to the hok an husker sections. Can't blame the store though, they have to cater to the market and there are more iowa and nebbie fans in this area.
    just because local stores don't carry the apparel doesn't mean the apparrel is bad. What ISU and vendors are putting out is the best stuff we have ever seen from ISU, IMO. You just have to find it.

    That isn't ISU's fault. That is purely a lack of fanbase fault. Stores put out what sells. You want to know why there is Texas clothing in Omaha? It sells. I can tell you the demographic that buys it as well.

    I don't blame the Sioux City Scheel's for not carrying more ISU gear. they cater to iowa and nebraska fans because there are more of them. However, what they do carry is very nice. Again, it is not eh apparel's fault the stores don't carry ISU gear. It is the lack of fanbase that purchases ISU gear. I am guessing for every ISU fan you find in Omaha, you can find 3 hok fans and 20 nebbie fans.

    It is pretty easy to get it online these days. And all it takes is one trip to Ames to supply my family for the year.

    Re: ISU apparel

    So if you guys do buy your ISU stuff online...which site has the best choices? I've looked and looked, and can never find the good Nike or UA clothing anyplace.
