Before they were Hokies, they were Gobblers. Before they were VT, they were VPI.

The nickname "Gobblers" first originated from football Coach Branch Bocock in 1909. In 1971, the school appended "Fightin'" to "Gobblers". In 1981, Football Coach and AD Bill Dooley changed the nickname officially to "Hokie".

In the same vein, Virginia Tech - officially named Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University - was known as VPI until 1969, when the switch was made to Virginia Tech.

We take both pieces of tradition and print the Gobbler Mascot, with a "VPI" hat, on a maroon crew. Brought to you in partnership with College Vault.

Great gift

This sweatshirt is soft and fit my husband well. Aside from the delay in holiday shipping, I am very pleased with my purchase.

Ridiculously comfortable

Not only was the design cool, but my wife stole this from me within a day due to how comfortable it was. My only complaint would be the neck hole size. I bought a large, and in comparison to the medium size which i have tried on from another school's design, it was weirdly at least a few inches larger/wider, such that it cant be worn by itself, need a shirt underneath.

Can't say no to the fighting gobbler design!

The design is too cool and the customer service is excellent.

Material like Egyptian cotton

Homefield overall experience is A+! I ordered the incorrect size (all my fault, not theirs) and returning/exchanging was a snap. They're super responsive on twitter for any questions and not to mention all their gear is amazing. 10/10 WOULD BUY AGAIN.
