With less than a week until the Buckeyes hit the gridiron, it's time to start pulling out the complete scralet and gray wardrobe. This is also the time of year when we all start grabbing up the latest Buckeye apparel out there. So I figured I would assemble a list of my favorite t-shirts, hats, and other gear from around the web. This may just be the first post in TSB history that you will actually want to show your wife.
T-Shirts:

NIKE RETRO LOGO ORGANIC TEE

Some of you might think the Block "O" is a little boring, but I love the throw back look. Not only that, but it's an organic t-shirt, which are 100% better than crappy Hanes and Gildan tees.

HOMAGE SCRIPT OHIO TEE

It may be one of the most simple shirts ever, but I don't care, I am a huge fan of the vintage Homage tees. Script Ohio is argubly the best game day tradition out there, and this shirt represents it.

NIKE WEIGHT ROOM PERFORMANCE TEE

This is Dri-FIT shirt, which may be nice if you are in the stands September 2nd. Dri-FIT shirts are the way to go, especially if you actually get off the couch and do something every now and then.

11W AMERICAN APPAREL CARMEN TEE

The guys over at Eleven Warriors just released a whole bunch of new designed tees, and this is my favorite. Carmen Ohio is my favorite OSU tradition, and once again the vintage tee looks legit.

NIKE BLACK 2010 PRACTICE TEE

One of a handful of pretty standard shirts Nike releases every year. Still it's a cool looking tee, and one of the few black OSU shirts I really like.

Hats:

NIKE COLLEGE VAULT FITTED HAT

For those of you who like flat bills, this is probably my favorite out there. It has the standard Block "O" with some nice embroidery on the back.

Picture
NIKE 2010 COACHES PERFORMANCE HAT

Some of you act like you know more than the coaches, so why not look like them. It's a Dri-FIT hat from Nike that looks solid. It is adjustable, if you like that sort of thing.

NIKE RAD PLAID SWOOSH FLEX HAT

It's hard to find solid, one size fits all hats that aren't flat bills. This is one of the better ones I've seen. It's got some plaid on it to make it different than the standard Block "O" hats out there, with a Nike swoosh on back.

Other Gear:

NIKE #8 SCARLET REPLICA JERSEY

I'm guessing most of you jumped on the Pryor bandwagon and bought a No. 2 jersey last year. So why don't you buy the jersey of the next great OSU receiver (both college and pro) in DeVier Posey.

Picture
COLUMBIA GOAL LINE SOFTSHELL JACKET

This item is on my personal Christmas list. I already own one Columbia Softshell jacket and I pretty much wear it all winter long. It would be nice to get with one in scarlet with the Buckeye embroidery.

Picture
HOMAGE OSU WINTER CAP (HOME)

There are tons of winter caps/beanies I could pick out, but I decided to go old school again. This hat goes perfect with some of those mittens that covert into fingerless gloves. Anyway, once again I'll happily jump on the Homage bandwagon.

So there you have it, some of the items you might want to order for this season. Sorry if you were looking for Tressel's Hawaiian shirt, it didn't make the list. There are obviously thousands of items out there and style is subjective, but it's hard to go wrong with Homage, Nike, and Columbia. My only request, just don't be OSU's version of this guy!
