Repping your alma mater with your clothing is so yesterday. These days, Houston’s foodie scene is so hot, it's haute—check out these tanks, T-shirts, hats and other accessories from local purveyors. They're almost cute enough to eat.
Dirty Branch t-shirt from The Branch Craft Beer & Foodery
Kyle Pierson is a veteran of the Houston foodie scene and a native of Spring Branch, also referred to as the Dirty Branch by locals. So when his craft beer bar and foodery opened, he was ready with this tee ($20) to represent his hood. Pierson says he's sold dozens of the shirts to local police officers, who love them so much they wear the tees under their uniforms.
Trucker Hats from Cake & Bacon
Cake & Bacon is one of Houston’s trendiest wholesale bakehouse and butchery commissaries, with restaurants and retailers throughout Houston stocking up on their edibles. Owner Jeff Weinstock knows that a little bit of vice makes everything nice, and that includes Cake & Bacon’s sweet trucker hats ($20).
Skyline Ladies Tank from Saint Arnold Brewery
Specially sized tank tops for women made their debut this month at Saint Arnold, just in time for the slow crawl of a hot and humid late Houston summer. You'll be bearing the brand of our city’s original craft brewery when you don this breezy tank ($20) that begs you to take it to brunch and give it a beer.
Onesie from Houston Dairymaids
Give your bundle of joy what everyone needs—a lifelong love of cheese. What better way to celebrate your new little butterball than to pop them into a Houston Dairymaids onesie ($15)? Lindsey Schecter has been peddling cheesy goodness to Houston restaurants, retailers, and patrons for years. Induct your baby into the foodie hall of fame early when you pick up this precious onesie from the shop on Airline Drive.
Blood Bros. T-Shirt from Blood Bros. BBQ
One of the most popular foodie pop-ups in town just opened a brick and mortar in Bellaire. Don’t be surprised when you see people gobbling up BBQ on the hood of their car outside of the shop because there aren’t any seats left. If you, like me, can’t turn down a Dr. Pepper-glazed donut paired with brisket, then you shouldn't turn down a chance to show off your barbecue fandom with these awesome Blood Bros. tees ($15).
