A boutique t-shirt company and design studio in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago.
Transit Tees takes visuals from Chicago's metropolitan landscapes and transforms them into fasionable artwork. The brand was founded in 2001 by Tim Gillengerten, a creative director who aspired to build an apparel line that reinterprets subway maps, street signs, city seals and flags in ways that the public had never seen before. Today, Transit Tees is an official manufacturer for the Chicago Transit Authority and locally designs, fabricates and retails their signature brand online and at three gift shops, including their flagship store in Wicker Park.
