Cavs Fan Guide: Five Must-Have T-shirts

When owner Ryan Weiss of Rock Everywear looks at his The Land: A City Reborn shirt ($20), one word comes to mind: champions. “It’s kind of like a mock-up of the championship trophy and the phoenix bird. [They’re] supposed to represent the birth of our city,” he says.

It’s important to remember that the NBA Finals is about the team as a whole, so the All the King’s Men shirt ($25) featuring the smiling (and bearded in most cases) silhouettes of the whole Cavs team makes us grin. “We just wanted to make a fun shirt that included all the Cavs in a fun way,” explains CLE Clothing Co. owner Mike Kubinski. 342 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, 216-736-8879,

Brothers and co-owners of GV Art + Design Greg and George Vlosich decided to strategically release this special edition shirt ($26) right after LeBron James made a game-winning shot against Chicago earlier in the playoffs. “Honestly, it’s such a great statement. I mean, nothing is given — you gotta earn what you have,” George says. 17411 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, 216-273-7188,

Even with Kevin Love sitting the Finals out because of a certain shoulder mishap, and Kyrie Irving hampered by knee troubles, this shirt ($32) from Ilthy owner and designer Glen Infante featuring playful caricatures of Cleveland’s Big Three makes us hopeful. 15613 Detroit Ave., Lakewood,

We can't resist Fresh Brewed Tees’ can-do message on the All We Do is Win shirt ($25.99). Though that usually hasn’t been the case with Cleveland sports, we have no shame showing the world that 2015 is different.
