Get in the Fourth of July spirit with Charlie Hustle’s festive new tee

Charlie Hustle’s signature K.C. Heart tees have become a staple among Kansas Citians, and the apparel company has released a new version just in time for Independence Day.

This year, you can celebrate America and Kansas City with the brand’s new shirt, which features the red and white stripes and stars from the American flag inside the K.C. heart. (Kansas City is in the heart of America, after all.)

The shirt is unisex, and is available in sizes extra small to extra extra large, although sizes are selling out quickly. The shirt retails for $32 and is available at Charlie Hustle’s shop at 419 W 47th St. on the Country Club Plaza, or through

If the American flag shirt is sold out before you get your hands on it, Charlie Hustle also has a USA Athletics tank or a Made in the USA T-shirt.

All you need to complete your all-American celebration is fireworks, Kansas City barbecue and a Boulevard beer or two (or three).
