The Home. T

$28

Hot-in-Hollywood The Home. T is apparently the latest look for celebs who want to express their inner state pride. Being from Massachusetts—one of the best states, of course, for its firsts, its smahts and its clam chowder—we kinda like this comfy-chic trend. Super soft T-shirts (and adorable onesies) feature the word ‘home’ inside a graphic depiction of the Bay State. And, well, if you have never called Mass home, The Home. T offers similar looks for all 50 of our realms, Puerto Rico, the U.S., and even Canada
Available: here.
