Our long wait is almost over... Homefield Apparel just teased that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will be the first school they will use in the second season of their Big New Saturday — and we’re super duper excited gang.

If you don’t know who or what Homefield Apparel is, you will get a very intimate look at the “Good Brand” over the next week as we wait for their launch of the Notre Dame collection.

Over a very short period of time, this clothing company has become THE premier brand for college sports fans. There are several reasons for this:

  • It’s stupidly comfortable. The shirts are very soft, breathable, and have just the right fit for almost everyone out there.
  • The hoodies are even softer than the tees, and provide a warmth that only exists elsewhere when you see the Irish beat down USC.
  • The joggers? Dear lord in heaven — it’s like the creator made sure these were available for home life during a global pandemic. They’re that good.
  • They create thoughtful designs based off of historic images and logos to create a collection full of goodies.

Personally, I remember first seeing them well over a year ago, and I snatched up their Eastern Michigan gear. It’s hard to find quality EMU gear, and I loved it all. Since then, I have purchased Vanderbilt, Loyola, Fullcast, and Evansville shirts. If you want a great example of what they do, check out the Pitt collection for a good reference point.

Of course, I have been waiting patiently for this day — the day we finally get the news that Notre Dame gear is coming to the Good Brand. Big New Saturday will drop at noon on Saturday, June 5. There will be a special discount code for One Foot Down readers, and we will have more information coming on the site, the OFD Podcast, and on Twitter.
