Thanks for the feedback! Man oh man do we want that helmet logo - sadly, the design was denied when we submitted it.

As for the script - that's a great idea. Just may have to make a shirt with that on it!

The design from our 1980s helmets is sorely neglected, and would make a great retro shirt design.

The script in our "Block A" logo is rarely (if ever) used on its own. I think it would make a great shirt as well.

The logo I posted earlier in this thread will likely be denied as well. I tried to create my own through Custom Ink and they called me saying the reached out to the school and said it couldn't be used.

Will all of your stuff be licensed directly from the school?
Yep! We always get licensed for every last design.
Good! Glad App gets credit back for their own history.

Looking forward to some great designs. I think these guys have brought up some great ideas. Flying Yosef, sparky's Apps hat. Even the logo from the jug is "current' but would be cool to see a shirt have the Yosef jug itself on it. Even the Gortons fishermen logo...

Any history logo is great.

I love the Yosef T with Mountaineers below. Looks like the font from the Old Mountain Jug. Any chance in getting that in gray?

Get some more old school options, and you'll make a killing over here.

Thanks!

Mountaineer Mania Yosef? The school shouldn't have a say should they? Mountaineer Mania should.... Either way, Homefield should reach out to MM to ask if they could use the logo.

Mania themselves have been doing basically nothing with it for years. Disappointing.

Hey guys! Just joined the community - I'm Connor and I help run Homefield. We make premium (read: extra comfortable) college apparel, and try to make unique/vintage designs for schools of all sizes. We know that no matter how much research we do, it'll never compare to the knowledge of die-hards, which is why we joined this community.

We have a few App State items on the site right now (https://www.homefieldapparel.com/collec ... hian-state), and we want to add even more. This is where you come in. No one loves App State more than you, and we want to learn from the experts.

Mainly: what are your favorite App logos/traditions? We only want to make apparel that serves the most passionate fans, and we take that input quite seriously.

Even if you don't have any favorite logos/traditions, if you ever are thinking about ordering some App stuff, let me know and I'll be sure to hook you up with a solid discount.

Thanks,
Connor

Why are some logos OK to use and some restricted?

All depends on what a school's marketing/athletic depts decide to allow and not allow, honestly. Some schools want to establish a new brand and won't let too many vintage logos be used at a certain time.

Grey's a good idea! We'll have to look into making that happen.

Yep, he works for them now. I tweeted him before the game to ask him if he still had the hat. For some reason I didn't get a response. Ha

Maybe it was Mountaineer Mania that denied it, but I think it was the school because I remember the representative from Custom Ink telling me it was denied because of its likeness to the school Yosef. I agree though, it should be used more often.

White Block A on black helmets. I'm big on brands....you wont see Notre Dame gold, Alabamas plain with numbers, Clemsons paw, UNCs argyle ect change up their helmets (1 game a year is fine of course). Same with Barcelonas Stripes, cowboys star and Yankees pin stripes. It's the only thing Georgia Southern does better than us...they push their brand.

Brand identity is sooooo important. That's how we are known. Wish so much we went back to that instead of going semi oregon. I have no idea what our normal uniforms are....neither does anyone in the country. Most fans wont recognize our brand without seeing our name on the screen.

Rant over.
Cool uniforms are a recruitment tools. BAMA and the like dont need cool uniforms to get good players. We are good but we arent BAMA.

Stink wears the same unis b/c it harkens back to the days they had no money. The entire program's tradition is based on when they had no money. They can have that.

That said, I dont like our unis that much. The sleeves with the horizontal stripes are weird. I have no problem with the block A but I hate when we wear yellow pants with white tops. The all yellow thing we did a while back was a better look than what we'll be wearing tonight.

There are several important phrases in App State lore as well:

"Welcome To The Rock" is said by a famous App as we run onto the field



"Today I Give My All For Appalachian State" (or, TIGMA) is on the wooden sign that the players slap before every game.



Lastly, one of Coach Jerry Moore's signature lines - "Always do more than is expected"
