What to wear…or get your wife/girlfriend/sister, etc.
While in Philly, I was stopped about 5 times and asked where I’d gotten my women’s John Maine tee. The answer? At the new outdoor (but closed in) store at Shea, the one by the tickets near gate E. My other latest attention-getting acquisition has been my crystal logo clutch, which countless dudes and women have been asking about since spring training. (Yes, I’d prefer if it was embroidered and not crystaled, but oh well.)
I was reminded of how many emails from both dudes and ladies I got back in 2006 when I set up mock-designs of how I wish they’d make the Mets women’s clothes. Maybe they could actually fit well–not too short and too big in the bosom. Maybe they could lay off the crystals and rhinestones. For goodness sake, why do they ruin all the decent shirts with the crystals and the rhinestones!?
It’s not just the Mets clothes. Matty’s wife, a devout Yankees fan, also has trouble finding gear she likes. But, well, I’m not here to clothe the Yanks fans. I will, however, offer my own personal favorites available currently on Mlb.com.
Zoe’s Personal Preferences in Available Online Mets Merch And Yes She Wishes She Got Commission
1) I would love this jersey purse to add to my Metscessories.
2) One of the few decent vintage women’s options: a women’s Cooperstown t-shirt
3) This crystal wristlet is an adorable smaller version of my logo clutch.
4) A basic retro sweatshirt hoodie for even the less girly fans.
5) I find it hard to resist a youth ringer tee (kids medium for women’s small), like this one with the last-season-at-Shea-logo.
And yes, there are a few Touch by Alyssa Milano options that I would wear:
6) A fitted black zip hoodie. A bottom ruffle, yes, but looks like a good fit.
7) This button-down black top, which I really like! But which they don’t seem to have available anymore in small, which sucks.
8) I admit, I would wear this empire-waist tunic out to watch the game at my local Blind Pig, and I’d probably even wear it to Shea, too. In fact, it’s toward the top of my list. A little sexy, a little girly, but not slutty (very important that!)
9) This long-sleeved thermal looks like it’s cut long enough–a rarity in Mets merch–even if I’m not entirely sold on the swirly thingies under the logo.
10) I would have liked this black velour jacket at the 2 April games I’ve been to so far, but I worry it may be a bit short-waisted.
11) A basic gray (for away games?) youth tee that I’d wear for a break from blue and orange.
