In addition to the traditional parade, bed races, banquet and athletic competition, Homecoming at Benedictine College this year will feature new T-shirts designed and produced by the Charlie Hustle Clothing Co. The new T-shirts will debut on Saturday morning, October 21, in The Raven Store inside the Haverty Center on the college campus. The debut was scheduled to allow students, alumni and fans of the college to all have access to the popular products.

Founded in 2012 by Chase McAnulty, Charlie Hustle is a favorite vintage sportswear brand in the Greater Kansas City area. The brand bridges the gap between young and old, worn and reproduced with its "vintage made fresh" designs. Over the years, Charlie Hustle has successfully created some of Kansas City's most iconic leisure apparel, including the "Heart KC" T-shirts, jackets and hats.

“Charlie Hustle takes vintage and makes it fresh,” said Garrett Childers, wholesale manager for the clothing company. “Benedictine College does the same, offering its students access to modern facilities and a world-class education at an institution with history and rich traditions. It was with this in mind that Charlie Hustle and Benedictine College teamed up to create shirts that showcased both the past and the present. We hope everyone enjoys the Benedictine Collection!”

According to Pat Kuckelman, manager of The Raven Store, the two T-shirt designs will be revealed via the store's social media on Wednesday, Oct. 18, and Friday, Oct. 20. The exclusive designs will be available for purchase in the store beginning Saturday morning at 10 a.m. The Raven Store has extended its hours for the Homecoming Weekend, open on Saturday, Oct. 21, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, Oct. 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Everyone at The Raven Store is excited about the new Benedictine College Charlie Hustle T-shirts!” said Kuckelman. “The unique vintage graphics and comfortable t-shirt fit is a winning combination for our customers. We picked homecoming day to launch the Charlie Hustle collection to include as many of the Benedictine College community as possible.”
