Strange Cargo has been a Chicago staple since 1983. It is the go to place for custom t-shirts, Converse Chuck Taylors and whoopee cushions. Jay and Sheldon purchased the store in 1993. Way back then the store primarily sold vintage clothing. We criss-crossed the country bringing back to Chicago the best in deadstock and vintage fashions. In our travels we came across a t-shirt shop that had been shuttered since the early 80’s. We purchased its contents and away we went; creating and customizing the best t-shirts in the city. In addition to our shirts we carry tons of other stuff like women's clothing, accessories, lots of Vans and Asics-Tigers and of course tube socks. Next time your in Chicago stop by to say hello and maybe you’ll go home with those “Saved by the Bell” trading cards that you always dreamed of. See ya soon.
