Fat Tiger Workshop and Nike Chicago gave away Loyola t-shirts on Saturday ahead of the Ramblers Final Four appearance.

Loyola’s run to the Final Four has not only inspired casual hoops fans, but it also gave a local fashion designer the idea to add his own spin on Chicago’s biggest sports story.

Joe Freshgoods, co-founder of Fat Tiger Workshop, a clothing store in the city’s River West/West Town neighborhood, announced on Friday that they would be giving away 100 Loyola-inspired T-shirts in collaboration with Nike Chicago.

Joe made the announcement via Twitter:

Store officials confirmed to the Sun-Times that Fat Tiger ended up giving away 140 t-shirts after close to 300 people showed up in a line that wrapped around the corner.

The giveaway lasted only an hour.

Loyola plays Michigan in the first game of the NCAA Final Four on Saturday.
