A Brief Look At The Best Penn State Gameday Apparel

What really makes a Penn State gameday? Is it the food? Staying extra hydrated with your best friends? Experiencing the best stadium atmosphere in the county? Or, could it simply be the outfit? 

If you said the outfit, then downtown State College is for you. From matching sets to fun Hawaiian shirts, you’ll find the Penn State fit of your dreams that you’ll probably black out make the best memories in. 

Here are some of our best finds downtown. 

Penn State Dude Jersey

If you are a Penn State Dude™, then you will most likely be found wearing a jersey. You can find a pretty expansive collection of jerseys. The ones pictured here are from Lion & Cub.

Certified Cool Penn State Dude

There’s a Penn State Dude™ and then there’s a Cool Penn State Dude™. What separates them you ask? A Hawaiian shirt, of course. Run, don’t walk, to McLanahan’s for this beauty pictured above. 

Side note: Hawaiian shirts aren’t cheap. As the guy that was standing next me said, “F*ck. $138 for this?” 

Home Sweet Home

The next shirt in our ranking is this very sweet shirt. Do I expect basic college girls to be wearing this? No, but I think it’s a good reminder that State College will always feel like home, especially during football season. 

Life is Good Dog Shirt

This was just cute. I don’t know, man. 

Matching Set 

Who says you should be uncomfy this football season? I found this at Lions Pride and almost swooped it up immediately. It was very soft. Plus, this is a fit you could pull off even after tailgating season is over. 

Lion Paw 

State College has such a weird obsession with this design. I think it’s starting to get worn out, but I still feel it’s clever. It’s creative and hits with the right crowd of seltzer-crazed college students. As they say, there ain’t no laws when you’re drinking claws! (Read: There are indeed laws).

Tube Tops

I couldn’t pick just one, so here’s a whole rack of tube tops at Family Clothesline. They have been a staple of tailgating season since the beginning of time. My mom would yell at me for wearing this, but get yourself to Family Clothesline and go wild. 

JoePa Hat 

Did I one time ask my mom who Joe Paterno was in the middle of the Penn State bookstore? Yes. Would I wear this hat to pay tribute to a football icon? Also, yes. 409 forever, baby.

The Perfect Crop Top

I found this at Lion and Cub and did not hesitate to buy it. It’s the perfect amount of crop without feeling like I’m not wearing clothes. Plus, the shiny silver outline really makes it POP. You will be seeing me in this on Saturday (sorry, mom).
