If any of our locals have stopped by the store or even browsed our online shop, you might have seen some T-shirt designs like these...
What most people don't know is that the Tallahassee Tiger Sharks were an actual minor-league hockey team that played right here at the Donald L. Tucker Center from 1994-2001. The team originally started in Nashville back in 1981 and changed several names and cities before arriving to Tallahassee. They were very successful in their first season, finishing in second place in the West Division. They were even able to make it to the playoff games each year until their 1997-98 season when they failed to qualify. After continuous upsets, the franchise packed up and moved to Georgia where they became the Macon Whoope. Not long after they moved to Lexington, Kentucky and then finally settled in West Valley City, Utah where they currently play as the Utah Grizzlies.
In the spirit of the game, this video shows one of many Tallahassee Tiger Sharks brawling with an opponent in the middle of a game. Exciting stuff!
Olde Fields is lucky enough to have partnered up with a company that shares similar beliefs about products made in the United States and a love for vintage styles. Our Tallahassee Tiger Sharks T-shirts are purchased through Local Vyntage, a company that thrives on nostalgia. Similar to our own designs, Local Vyntage provides U.S. made, labeled, and screen printed shirts that bring back blast from the past designs. Chet Winnick founded his company in 2016 and has been making t-shirts that really speak to people of small towns and remind them of all the memories they have shared there. We thank Chet for allowing our store to represent Tallahassee and help our locals show their pride and love for this amazing city.

If you've been in the store lately or have placed an online order you may have noticed that our tees are a little different..
That's because we are no longer carrying American Apparel tees. We made this decision based on the fact that American Apparel was bought out by Gildan last year and all production has been moved to Gildan factories outside of the United States. Not wanting to stand by a company that no longer supports non-sweatshop work environments we began our search for a new tee that was up to par.
Then we found *drumroll*
Los Angeles Apparel
Los Angeles Apparel was founded in 2016 and currently employees 350 individuals. Not only is this company completely US based (in South Central Los Angeles) and sourced but they have a lot of awesome values.
We wanted our shirts to not only be something you feel good in but something you feel good about so the values Los Angeles Apparel encompasses really hit home for us.
This company is all about providing their employees with living wages and employee ownership.
Not only are the workers treated like actual people but the materials used to create the shirts are also all sustainably sourced. Organic cotton, recycled cotton, and environmentally consciously harvested cotton are all used. Los Angeles Company also dyes and processes all of the textiles in California (which has some of the strictest protection rules on textile dying and production). So you can feel confident that any shirt you put on did not impose harm on the environment
We're back! As the spring semester kicks off and we're all settling into our new class schedules don't forget to make time to stop by Market Wednesday between that awful 9am and your 2pm. (No you can't sit in Starbucks for all that time ladies its frowned upon).
This spring we're bringing you all the cuteness you'll find at the store right in the middle of campus!
We're coming in strong with all the new denim highwaisted shorts along with loads of vintage denim.
As always well be bringing out all of our custom tee's!
But we aren't the only ones hanging at Market Wednesday this semester!
