Our Story Begins in Central Park...
Alyson and Matt cofounded Americutie in 2011. But they met two years prior playing softball in Central Park. Alyson face-planted running to 3rd base; Matt was the umpire who called her "out." I guess you could say it was love at first site.
Both Matt and Alyson went to Syracuse University (Matt graduated in 2006, Alyson in 2008), and by the time they met on that fateful Summer day, they were both separately plotting ways to take over the business world. Matt had founded the Central Park softball league; Alyson had trademarked the word 'Syracutie' and started a clothing line.
But they found everything was better together, and they combined their entrepreneurial aspirations.
Alyson helped Matt launch a student-written college sports site called College Spun, so students who are sports nuts like Matt can interact with fans and express their school pride through writing.
helped Alyson get Syracutie sold in the Syracuse Unviersity bookstore
after two years of brutal lawyer-filled negotiations. He also suggested
the expansion to Americutie, so the rest of the nation could get in on
So that brings us to Americutie, a new clothing line that lets you show your pride in a cute, comfy way.
Our apparel lines for women and children allow you to make a fun, creative statement. Americutie clothing is produced by only top-tier manufacturers like American Apparel on the softest cotton blends. Every shirt is designed to be the perfect length and fit too.

What's with the Coming Soon/Pre-order page?
We use products on this page to gauge customer interest. If you see an item you love and you'd order it in a heart beat, you can place a pre-order request via email without your credit card being charged. If we receive enough pre-order requests (about 20 per design/shirt), we'll make them. Otherwise, we'll keep spinning our wheels until you stumble across a different design you have to have.
The pre-order process give Syracuse fans a say in what they wear, and it saves us time and energy producing something you don't want.
And remember, you control what gets made. If you really want to see one of the designs on this page become a real shirt, send the url to all of your friends on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. If you refer five pre-order customers, we'll give you your shirt for free.
