    Simple thread...

    Where do you buy your Texans Gear???
    :texflag:
    Where is the best place to get Texans Gear???
    :fans:
    Since we just moved back to Texas (and H-Town) after 3-4 yrs away...we need to stock up on our Texans Gear.

    Looking for:

    XXXL sized Texans fan stuff (I's a Big Brotha) :shades:
    Womens Texans gear (I've GOTTA get the wife outta that Chicago Bears stuff)
    And kids gear (8 yrs)...
    :texan:
    I've heard lots of folks mention both Academy & Walmart...
    My experience is that those two places are almost ENTIRELY vacant of good Texans stuff.

    Suggestions and recommendations please!!!

    :logo:


    Edit: If I put this in the wrong forum...please move it where it belongs. Thanks mods.

    I haven't really seen one store that has a great selection of Texans gear. I've bought a few caps off NFLshop.com but for shirts and stuff, I haven't found a place that has a great selection. I've seen a few at Kohls, some at Academy, and some at Walmart. Kohls had the best selection when I went there, but I haven't been to the store in a while so that may have changed.

    Where do I buy Texans gear? Well, after I swim through the Cowboys gear (and their big wall display), then I find the Texans gear (this is at the Sports Authority in Katy on I-10/Fry Road).

    Right stuff, low price: Academy

    Don't hit the Sports Authority. It's sickening how much cowgirls stuff, and how little Texans stuff, they carry. I walked out of the store pissed off a couple of weeks ago while searching for kids size Texans jerseys. They had none; Academy had Mario, Demeco, Schaub, and Johnson.

    hmmm... I hadn't tried Kohl's. I get most of my stuff at Academy. Although I have bought a cap or two at the training camp kiosk.

    Don't go to Walmart. They almost never have any "official" jerseys there. They only have the jerseys without the stripes on the shoulders, lol.

    Try the Sports Fan-Attic in Memorial City and Willowbrook Mall. They have anything you need for Texans stuff. Even have baby stuff like bibs and teeny onesy jerseys. lol. very cute. They should have stuff for your whole family.

    Academy always has stuff, but meh. lol

    If your in need for a cap try Lidz in any mall.

    I'm really digging the Texan's new hat... But I doubt, I'll find any store in Austin that'll sell these. Maybe Fanzz, but most likely I have to order it online.

    Believe it or not, Wal-Mart has a couple of really cool Texans hats... and since it's Wal-Mart, I assume there's a bunch of XXXL stuff too.

    I was at one on 249 several miles from 1960... not sure what the cross-streets were, but I assume all the ones in the Houston area have the same stock.


    EDIT - it's a few miles north of Spring/Cypress on 249.

    The only clothes I buy from Walmart are boxers and tees. The hell with everything else, especially bootleg Texans gear. :)

    You like the hat? I thought it has a weird design. Especially with the white shape in the back. Not a big fan. I do like the draft hat though

    You can probably find caps at a Lids store. There should be one in your local mall. Here's a list of all the Houston locations http://www.lids.com/locations.html

    Actually - I didn't buy the cool hat that I saw at that location in Houston, so I was going to go out in Austin this week and see if I could find it... I'll let you know, man.

    I think it looks the hat pretty spiffy.:cool: The draft cap is alright, but I think the tri-color is sort of tacky.

    thanks dude.

    Make a trip to the Go Texans Store at the stadium. They have tons of stuff there. It might only be open during the season though. I don't remember. They have nothing but Texans gear.

    there's DEFINITELY a generation gap between you and me as far as ballcap taste goes.
    LOL
    you younguns can keep that hip-hop look, I'll stick to the mainstream, classic styles. Nothing worse than an old dude, like me, trying to rock hip-hop styles. It just looks weird.
