Power Ranking THON 2021 Merchandise

Even though THON 2021 looks a bit different, one thing that will never change is the feeling of getting brand-new THON merchandise. No matter the time of year, every piece of merch makes you feel like you’re right there at the BJC.

It’s s only appropriate to power rank the best of the best THON merch, so let’s get to it.

No. 10 Black Short Sleeve Logo T-shirt

To start off the ranking, it’s always appropriate to keep it simple with the casual black shirt. Costing only $15.00, you could rock this shirt with any outfit throughout the week. Whether it’s a comfy outfit day or a dress-up vibe, this is a go-to.

No. 9 China Blue Short Sleeve Logo T-shirt

In a different shade, we have the same THON t-shirt! On a snowy or rainy day, we can see students around campus chilling in this 2021 shade. It’s such a simple and subtle tone of blue.

Definitely a chef’s kiss.

No. 8 Sport Grey Logo Long Sleeve

Here we have the new logo of “Rise and Unify” for 2021. The $15.00-$20.00 light grey T-shirt looks pretty nice for our 46-hour weekend event. Out of the three colors the long-sleeve comes in, the grey is lesser of the three. But of course, it still looks fantastic!

No. 7 FTK Polaroid T-Shirt

This shirt is a throwback to review, but something considered in this ranking is how detailed each polaroid is within this $15.00 shirt. If you look closely, the polaroids capture personality of Penn State and THON itself. It is 100% the creativity for us.

No. 6 I THON…T-Shirt

This shirt is an original, but we love this “I THON…” shirt because of the originality and emotion that could be behind it. The most heartwarming responses will form, and that is all we would ever want to hear. Everyone has a reason they THON, and for $10.00 a shirt, everyone can express it.

No. 5 THON Weekend Long Sleeve

Ranking right in the middle, new, fresh, $20.00 THON Weekend long sleeve. These colors and designs everything for our upcoming spring season. This is totally what we needed from THON.

No. 4 Black Embroidered Crewneck

Although it’s on the more expensive end, this crewneck is everything to keep you warm in the winter. The simple embroidered THON lettering means you can wear it with almost anything. Jeans? Not a problem. The pants you’ve been wearing all 46 hours of THON? Easy.

No. 3 For The Kids Ringer Tee

This new design is extremely close to #1. The $20.00 FTK shirt holds everything we could imagine. That neckline? Love it. The sleeves” Love it. The colors? Love it even more. For the kids? Absolutely. No matter the year, this is a go-to.

No. 2 White Logo Long Sleeve

Ranking second is the classic white “Rise and Unify” logo shirt going for $20.00. The way the logo pops on the white fabric shows how great the logo genuinely looks. The designers did a great job, and this shirt proves.

#1 Black Logo Dry-Fit

Of course, we have the 2021 logo as our No. 1! Nothing can describe this year better than “rising” and “unifying.” For $15.00-$20.00, you can purchase a fancy, dry-fit logo shirt. The logo, the fabric, and the meaning takes top-tier. In fact, I’m to purchase one as we speak.
