A tale with a tail, a sketch pad, and a desire to find cool places. This is our story.


I'm Jon Terzini, the guy behind all these cool designs. That's Bowie Boi next to me. We've both got a bit of a travel bug, and lucky for us quite the playground to explore. Right in my backyard of the Midwest, there are dozens of state parks and charming towns waiting to be explored. Instead of just scribbling notes in a notebook about their beauty, I draw them – whatever comes to mind that captures the essence of these places. With a background in graphic design and screen printing, turning my art into apparel is a breeze.

Started small, just selling at craft shows and holiday fairs, HomeTown Riot has grown into a lifestyle and destination brand celebrating the places we love. Whether you're hitting the town or venturing out of state, we've got quirky and comfy apparel with a graphic personality that's truly unique. Take a piece of your hometown with you wherever you go.

But it's not just about the threads – it's about community and connections. Our designs get people talking and sharing stories. Imagine spotting someone in a hometown shirt at a local spot – wouldn't you strike up a conversation? That's the vibe of loving your Hometown.

When it comes to our designs, it's all about being original. We only offer stuff we'd wear ourselves, and nothing in our catalog is boring or generic. Most of our designs are hand-drawn, sketchbook style, with a touch of hand-lettering to give them that HomeTown Riot feel. Toss in a bit of vintage flair, and that's our brand in a nutshell. Make every place your HomeTown.
