On a Transit Tee, the CTA Has Never Looked More Beautiful

We all hate on the CTA, but there’s no denying that it’s part of what makes our city so fetchingly flawed.

I love this hand-stitched ode to the El, which turns the transit map into a wearable geometric work of art befitting of any true blue Chicagoan. For 12 years, locally produced Transit Tees has been silk screening and embroidering cleverly embellished transportation-focused styles that also include station-specific designs (shout out to Chicago Blue Line!).

Whether strolling the lakefront path or trying to maintain my composure on a jam-packed 66 bus, I’d be proud to sport this tee.
