Representing the Cleveland Cavaliers by way of T-shirts, hats, shoes and shorts are practically a requirement at sports bars, watch parties and home games at The Q.

As the Cleveland Cavaliers get closer to another NBA Championship title, showing support in any way through social media, physically showing up to a game and bleeding wine and gold all over town are essentials.

Hottest Cavs T-shirts from local stores:

Cleveland Clothing Company

342 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114 (216) 736-8879

"Spreading Cleveland pride, One T-shirt at a time," is the motto that the Cleveland Clothing Company continues to live by and it has contributed to their success since founded in 2008.

Since then, the company has produced shirts for the finals more than once, and a World Series. This year, anything that reflects Cleveland's pride in the Cavaliers is a hot seller.

One of the company's newest shirts says "Believeland." The wine and gold collection continues to need re-stocking. Since all of the apparel is non-NBA official, most of the shirts don't mention the Cavs, which allows more creativity for shirts that can't be replicated anywhere else in The Land.

Prices start at $27.99

Fresh Brewed Tees

Owner Tony Madalone is credited for creating the #defendtheland mantra that is widely used on social media to stir excitement and harmless trash talk among fans and opponents. At Fresh Brewed Tees, anything with "Defend the Land," "Flat World Champions," and "On Another Level" are top sellers. 

Prices start at $27.99

We Bleed Ohio

530 Euclid Ave #31, Cleveland, OH 44115 (440) 941-1178

Going off of the famous Christmas Story House, the "Major Award" T-shirt, as it's called, combines Cleveland's two favorite things: The shirt has a throwback feature with the short basketball shorts. Men, women and children of all ages can wear rock this shirt!

Price: $20


17128 Detroit Ave Lakewood | 216-273-7188 AND 38038 Second Street Willoughby | 440-525-5240

What started as a "Cleveland that I love" campaign in 2009 turned into another creative clothing company. A shirt unique to GV ART + Design, the current top seller is the "Repeat History-One Game at a Time" T-shirt. Bring a sharpie to the game and mark off the victories they pile up.

Price: $28
