The band O.A.R. and Sportiqe have developed a solid relationship over the past several years and we couldn’t be more excited for the direction our partnership is heading. In addition to designing and manufacturing merchandise for their tour, Sportiqe has been collaborating with the band to create The O.A.R. Collective. The goal of the Collective is to create a revolutionary program that highlights and celebrates the combination of music, fashion and schools. Sold at various University Bookstores around the country, The Collective consists of popular Sportiqe garments that have been matched up with graphics created by the band.
Since its inauguration in 2009, the Collective has grown in popularity and will be expanding with more schools, more graphics and more garments in the Fall of 2011. In addition to being available at the University Bookstores and our online boutique, The Collective will soon be available at Finish Line stores across the country. The two The Ohio State University tees of the expanded collection (pictured on the right) are already available online here.
On Thursday, February 3rd, you will find Team Sportiqe at O.A.R.’s performance at the PGA Tour’s The Waste Management Phoenix Open in Phoenix. Earlier this week, some of the guys in the band stopped by the office to say hey, check out our new gear and take some photos:
