Best shops for Phillies gear in Philadelphia – The Philadelphia Inquirer

We found cool gear to prepare for Red October.
After a whopping 90 victories this regular season, the Fightin’ Phils are off to the MLB playoffs again for the second year in a row.
That means you need some fresh powder blues and Phillies merch for the watch parties, dress-down work days, and happy hours ahead of the playoff run, and dare we say, road to the 2023 World Series.
There’s the official MLB Phillies online store where you can get everything from jerseys to hats, all available to be delivered to your house. Just remember to plan ahead if you are placing online orders — you never know what shipping delays could arise.
There’s also the New Era Phillies Store inside Citizens Bank Park (next to the Third Base Gate, at the corner of Citizens Bank Way and Pattison Ave.), which is usually open Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — but hours are subject to change each week, so check online before you go.
National retailers like Fanatics or Fans Edge also have a wide selection of apparel for adults and kids.
But what if you’re looking for gear with more Philly flair? Here are 11 Philadelphia-based brands and stores that sell extra-Philly Phillies gear.
The Phillies gear from this apparel and streetwear brand out of Northeast Philly is going to take you to class on Mike Schmidt and Tug McGraw history. The latest drops from the shop were even recently seen on Eagles head coach, Nick Sirianni. With shirts depicting iconic Phillies players, tank tops with modern Phillies designs, and Phanatic tees, Art History 101 has a classic vibe. Available online or in-store.

A print shop and design studio, Hog Island Press has a collection of Phillies gear that makes an impact. This year’s release is another partnership with Phillies legend Charlie Manuel — yes, that one — called “This is for Philadelphia,” a throwback to Manuel dedicating the 2008 World Series win to Phillies fans. Like always, $5 from each shirt goes to a good cause, this time helping ECYEH (Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness) Teen Program at The School District of Philadelphia. Last year, Manuel partnered with Hog Island to donate $5 of every purchase from its “Charlie Knows Best” collection to RIP Medical Debt, a national nonprofit that helps people struggling with medical bills. Available online.

Suggested to us in a social callout, Paul Carpenter is an illustrator who creates elaborate Philly-centric shirt designs. From the Phillie Phanatic to Chase Utley and a new Rhys Hoskins shirt, Carpenter doesn’t just draw the iconic figures — he interlays insanely intricate scenes within the figures depicted. You have to see it for yourself. There’s apparel for children and infants, too. Available online.

Airy,” the 94.1 WIP sports radio caller that Bryce Harper dedicated a homer to, “The Hunt for Red October, and fan-favorite “The Bryce is Right,” and have the entire watch party asking where you got it.

There are dozens of Etsy shops to look through, and we wanted to include one that has great merch. If a classic “The Fightins” Phillies tee is up your alley or one of the “Clearwooder” shirts that Bryce Harper is seemingly a fan of, then you better get ‘em while they’re hot. Available online.
