Mononga-Hello T-shirt // 3 Outdoor Co.

Mononga-e

We love a t-shirt with a great story! From 3 Rivers Outdoor Co.’s website:

Real story; a 3ROC customer who recently moved to Pittsburgh in the last year couldn’t understand or pronounce the name of the river that flows from South to North to meet the Allegheny and Ohio to combine and meet the Ohio! What he thought he heard was Mononga-Hello! So his designer girlfriend came up with this t-shirt to sport their equal amusement. We saw it and said, we gotta have that too! Shout to Nick Alexander & Ashley Mielcarek for her design.

Pick up this shirt at 3 Rivers Outdoor Co.’s shop in Regent Square or order from their website.

🛒 $25.00 from 3 Rivers Outdoor Co.
