WNBA, Take My Money

Beyond the Orange Hoodie

· Guide,WNBAWeNeedMerch

First, you cannot talk WNBA merch without giving credit and props to the TheSkyShowChi, The Word on WNBA merch, founder of the #WNBAWeNeedMerch hashtag, author of the definitive WNBA Merch article, and best WNBA stan twitter follow. This article just compiles my WNBA shopping list - check his article for all merch possibilities!

Why do you need a Guide?

I want better for you than the merch offered at the official team store. The jerseys are all replicas, only come in one color, and there are few players represented. You're lucky if they even have a jersey tee for your favorite player. I ordered a crop top and it was refunded as out of stock but is still in stock on the website, so I'm not even sure the crop tops actually exist.

Mostly, we need more. Do you like those cool warm-ups your team is wearing? You can't buy them. What about jersey shorts? Also no. Socks? The WNBA is already selling NBA socks in the WNBA store so it would be easy to add WNBA socks, right? Apparently not.

This is so fucked up.

This is just so rude.

So if you want to support the WNBA, you may decide the best option is to go for the iconic orange hoodie, a fashion staple in 2020. And I encourage you to get one, but just know that Jasmine Thomas has already worn it better:

If you want to branch out, here's my WNBA shopping list, of my favorite merch available to buy from the WNBA and its players:

from AN ACTUAL WNBA STORE:

Your Home Team's Face Masks

Support the WNBA & protect yourself and those around you from a global pandemic. Win-win.

New York Liberty, Black Lives Matter replica shooting shirt

Can confirm this is a very comfy athletic shirt and all proceeds benefit the Breonna Taylor Foundation so there is absolutely no reason not to purchase it. Unfortunately, the Black Trans Lives version sported by Zahui B. is sold out.

... and that's about it.

Keep up with the latest from BreakingT x WNBA:

WNBPA Speaks collection

Unlike your local team store, BreakingT has shirts for every WNBA player in the 2020 season, reflecting the season's dedication to social justice.

Comment on current events

BreakingT comes out with shirts near-immediately after notable WNBA events. For example, you can join this season's Point Gawd debate with some of BreakingT's previous options. Are you team Chelsea Gray Point Gawddddd or Courtney Vandersloot with All the Dimes?

Bet on Women

It's the 2019 WNBPA shirt, but I still covet it for its simple, correct messaging.

BUY Merch Directly from your faves:

Arike Ogunbowale, Metal Tee or Trading Card Tee

I prefer the Metal tee design but this outfit on Arike after hitting a game-winner cannot be shared enough and getting the shirt is worth it for that reason alone, imo.

Breanna Stewart, Rings hoodie

I cannot tell you how many times I have put this in my cart.

Tea With A & Phee, Tea Time Tee

If you're not listening to their podcast, during which A'ja called Kendrick Perkins' 3.4 ppg a "good GPA" and Phee discussed the proper shimmy with Steph Curry, you're missing out. And these logo tees are cute as hell.

Marina Mabrey, This is my Kitchen hoodie

Love wearing this sweatshirt around, even though I am bad at both basketball & cooking.

Satou Sabally, Masterpiece Tee

Her store also has a really cool understated unicorn tee, but if you're going to go unicorn, go FULL UNICORN, in my opinion.

Brittney Griner, Rise Tank

If BG dunking doesn't motivate you to push it during your workout, idk what else will.

And now for something completely different:

Deldon designs, Rainbow basketball hoop art

The MVP is also a woodworker. It's unreasonable.

BONUS: DRESS LIke Your Fave

CHNGE, Women Don't Owe You Shit Shirt

Technically not a WNBA shirt, but sometimes things are just right.
