Those Cincy Shirts Jerks Have Gone Jamaican!

Those Cincy Shirts Jerks Have Gone Jamaican!

Ever since we started creating sweet T-shirts way back in 2005, we’ve learned to expect the unexpected.  We never thought we’d have a brick-and-mortar store, and now we are opening our third. We never thought a hippo at the Zoo would get us exposure on the NBC Nightly News, Time magazine, CNN, to name just a few, and we for sure didn’t think we’d be doing business with 2 prominent Jamaican celebrities.

In January of 2017, we were approached by a gentleman who was getting merch priced out for the reggae artist Shaggy.  We won the bid and started to design some tees for him to sling at his concerts.  That led us into creating merch to sell on ShaggyOnline.com, which is the singer’s official website.  We thought that was pretty awesome but wanted to take it one step further.  Every hip-hop artist has their own clothing line that they rep, so we asked, “why don’t we create one for Shaggy?  Everyone loves Shaggy!”

It took about 8 months to get off of the ground, but in November of 2017, we launched Raetown.com, which is a Jamaican inspired clothing line based on the sounds and feels of Jamaica. Raetown is the section of Kingston, the Jamaican capital, where dancehall music and reggae were born.

Shaggy was also born there and is still very supportive of his hometown and the Raetown neighborhood. In a way, Raetown is the Cincy Shirts of Kingston.

So far the experience has been both amazing and challenging. It’s given us the ability to gain build a brand from scratch which is amazing.  Our design team loves changing from Cincy to Jamaica at the drop of a hat.   It’s also been tough because we forgot how hard it is to get something off the ground. We hit the pavement for years setting up at any event we could and passing out cards to strangers.

Our association with “Mr. Luva Luva,” a.k.a. “Mr. Bombastic,” a.k.a. “It Wasn’t Me,” a.k.a. Shaggy, has led us to a partnership with another famous Jamaican, the sprinter, and world record holder Usain Bolt.  We were contacted by Bolt’s business partner who is starting a restaurant chain called Tracks & Records. He’s ordered from Shaggy’s website and contacted us because he loves the designs and the quality of the tees.  This is still in the early phases, but we are pumped to get this account and excited to see where it goes.  Tracks & Records plans to expand to 20 locations in the next 5 years and we plan to be with them along the way.

It really is crazy how a few dudes from Cincinnati all of the sudden have connections to the biggest names in Jamaica right now.  Who knows what is next for us? If you would have asked a few years who would have predicted that Cincy Shirts would be doing all this in 2018, we would have responded, “It Wasn’t Me.”

With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up. Priest Salami contact information are via email: purenaturalhealer@gmail.com. Whatsapp number: +2348143757229

I am SO EXCITED for you!!! I’ve been a fan of your shirts from the start! I will never forget meeting Josh Sneed wasaaay back in ‘98 at Go Bananas during the “Funniest Person in Cinci” amatuer night…my set was an experience of a lifetime, and I have him to thank for it! I followed his career from there, and when you guys started in the shirt biz, I knew it would be a winner…when I wasn’t buying them for myself or others, sometimes I just sat and looked through the different designs just to laugh my ass off. I love all my Cinci Shirts, and wear them all the time. I moved to FL last yr from a Cinci and they all made it through the pre-move purge ;) As a track coach, I have to add that I am soooo jealous of your work with Bolt!!! But when you do great work, it pays off! CONGRATS!!!

As the 2024 season draws near, I find myself reflecting on the journey that led me to become a devoted Cincinnati Reds fan. For many of us, our passion for this team and the game itself runs deep in our blood, often cultivated by the experiences shared with family and friends.
