Collab: Added Time x Die Innenstadt

We’re always looking to connect with fans of the beautiful game to provide them new ways show their support.

So when the opportunity to collaborate with Cincinnati-based supporters group Die Innenstadt arrose, it seemed like a match made in soccer-supporting heaven.

As one of the largest independent supporter group for our local MLS side, FC Cincinnati, Die Innenstadt have played a large part in shaping the blooming culture surrounding the club. Their name, meaning the “Inner City”, pays homage to their roots in Cincinnati’s urban core and the city’s prominent German heritage. And they’ve long maintained a focus on championing the rebirth and progress of the Queen City — a cause near and dear to our hearts here at Added Time.

So what did we whip up together?

When it came time to the come up with the design for our wristband collaboration with Die Innenstadt, we turned to their groups’ eclectic collection of membership scarves. On one side we took inspiration from their 2018 scarf, placing the group’s initialed lettermark over top a blue-tinged background of Bavarian diamonds. The reverse features the orange latticework covered in white vines from their 2020 scarf, a nod to the the shaded outdoor biergarten of DI’s longtime away matchday bar, Mecklenburg Gardens.

Ever socially conscious, Die Innenstadt has also pledged to donate $2 from the sale of each wristband to local charity, It Starts with the Shoes. The soccer-focused non-profit looks “to provide shoes, equipment, gear, nutrition, training, tansportation, and facilities for those who otherwise can’t afford to play soccer”.

For supporters of the Orange and Blue who want to sport the new reversible design at TQL Stadium, you can pick one up at Die Innenstadt’s pre-match festivities starting this Saturday, July 31, 2021, at the Sam Adams Tap Room in the West End. They’ll also be available at future away day watch parties at Mecklenburg Gardens and in their online store.

Interested in partnering with Added Time Outfitters to produce a unique, one-of-a-kind wristband for your supporters group, youth club, or soccer organization? Let’s talk! You can more about the process — and even fill out the interest form — on our Collaborations page.

Helps us add some international flair

Thanks to the delays induced by the dreaded plague, the summer of 2020 will be one to remember for supporters of the beautiful game. The European Championships, Copa America, and the Olympic tournaments have all been bumped back to this summer, meaning we’re in for a smorgasbord of soccer this summer.

To celebrate, we’ve decided to massively expand our wristband offerings for national teams!

Our three current international designs — for the U.S. women’s and men’s national teams and Mexico — have proven some of our most popular to date. And this summer, we’ll be adding a further seventeen wristbands. Here’s who we’ll be making them for:

Europe
England
France
Germany
Italy
Netherlands
Portugal
Spain
South America
Argentina
Brazil
Chile
Colombia
Uruguay
Elsewhere
Ghana
Japan
Nigeria
South Korea
USWNT (2nd Design)

Now normally, we like to keep our new designs under wraps until we release them into the wild. But we’re taking a different tact with these international offerings by letting YOU help us choose the iconic matches we feature on each wristband. All you have to do is scroll down below and cast a vote for the matches(s) you think should get incorporated into the designs. We made some suggestions for each country’s designs below, but feel free to write in your own matches as well.

We’ll leave the polls open through Friday, April 9 to allow ample time for votes to be cast and production so that we can have these designs on your wrists this summer.

Now that you’re done voting, check out our full selection of international team wristband designs.

For your head: Added Time Outfitters + Talisman & Co.

When we first launched Added Time Outfitters, our idea was relatively simple: let’s come up with a unique way for supporters of the beautiful game to represent their favorite teams, moments, and sport.

And though that idea initially manifested itself in the form of our line of original wristbands, we have always dreamed of more. Apparel lines, artwork, and further accessories have always dotted the periphery of our discussions about and plans for the future. We took a small step in that direction with the sticker packs we launched in July.

But today, we take those dreams a step further.

We’re doing that by launching our first move into the headwear space and an exciting collaboration with Talisman & Co. Launched by former professional player Dustin Branan and based out of St. Paul, Minn., Talisman “offers high-end, quality made caps to help you support and celebrate your football club”. And with a few Talisman caps already in our personal collections, teaming up with them for our first hat seemed a no-brainer.

The result of that collaboration affirmed that choice: the Added Time Outfitters + Talisman 5-Panel Cap.

The cap sports an unstructured, premium brushed cotton twill five-panel design, which is often called a “camp hat”. It features embroidered Added Time Outfitters logos on the front and back, including a new “fourth official” secondary mark. On the inside, a co-branded tag featuring the Talisman and ATO wordmarks.

You can purchase your own Added Time + Talisman 5-Panel Cap now as it is available exclusively at addedtime.com.

Stick with us

Since our last update back in March, quite a bit has gone down both in the world at large as well as here at Added Time Outfitters.

As we promised then, we’ve continued to regularly roll out new wristband designs. Our match collection now features 24 designs for teams from seven countries and we have five more to debut in the next few weeks. And despite a torrid expansion comparable only to Major League Soccer’s over the last few years, you’ve somehow managed to outpace our increasing supply with an ever-increasing demand.

Along the way, we’ve received numerous suggestions for new product ideas — from further fashion accessories to apparel and various beyond. To be fair, those are all things we have talked about doing. But, as it turned out, the new product request that we’ve received the most is also one that was one of easiest to pull off.

Hence our newest product offerings: high-quality vinyl stickers.

We took a design from 15 of our most popular wristbands and laid it overtop of three familiar templates: a pitch, a boot, and a ball. And each looks great on your laptop, water bottle, or favorite pub’s bathroom wall… though only if they endorse that sort of thing.

Just like with our wristbands, each pack of three stickers is available now with free shipping for just $5! And if you missed the link above, either hit the “Shop” link at the top of the page or view the entire collection of stickers by clicking here.

And after you order your own stickers, make sure to snap some pictures and tag us so we can see where you’re sticking Added Time Outfitters.

Let’s get domestic

It’s been a weird couple weeks in the world of soccer. This time of year, we’re normally completely overwhelmed by choice. For those of us in the Eastern part of the U.S., it’s usually entirely plausible to watch the beautiful game non-stop from sun up to sundown each weekend. There’s the home stretch of European campaigns, Champions League, and of course the launch North American competitions.

Here at Added Time Outfitters, we had been eagerly preparing for the arrival of American leagues. Though thanks to the onset of a global pandemic, we — along with soccer supporters across the globe — have been denied that weekly inspiration and escape.

But just because there’s no soccer being played, that doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate the teams and memories that we love.

With that in mind, today we’re proud to unveil five brand new Added Time Outfitters wristband designs that pay homage to some of our country’s most iconic clubs:

Coupled with the already available Cincinnati-inspired Queen City Cupset and the U.S. men’s national team derived Red White and Denim, that brings our total number of domestic offerings to seven. Don’t see a wristband for your side yet? Let us know who you want to see next by getting in touch.

As a reminder, every order ships free of charge within the United States including all of our new designs! And be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to get the latest updates on new products, special offers, and giveaways.

This Ain’t Fergie Time, It’s Added Time

Like all great ideas in the modern era, Added Time Outfitters was born of a text message between friends.

“I’ve got an idea I want to show you this week… let’s get together if you’re not busy.”

That text message led to a brunch, which in turn led to a scribbled idea in a notebook, which eventually led to this website and all the stuff you find on it. Obviously, there’s a lot more to the story than those three mundane steps. But that’s how things are in added time: simplified and to the point.

However, the idea that spawned that text message was ultimately pretty simple: let’s create a unique way for anyone, in any place or setting, to show love for their team.

Hats, t-shirts, kits, and training wear are all awesome ways to do that — you’ll find our closets stuffed full of them. Yet it can be tough to wear those in the classroom or office. And for others, jerseys and track jackets are too loud and flashy and a more subtle sign of support is desired.

But even when creating a subtle supporting accessory, we wanted to make sure each item we designed still told a story. Still had meaning. Still celebrated the rich culture that surrounds each player, club, and team.

That’s how we came up with Added Time Outfitters’ first line of offerings: a line of soccer-inspired, reversible, low-key wristbands that we’re dubbing the “Match Collection”. One side featuring a design inspired by that team’s culture, the other commemorating one of their greatest ever matches.

And after over nearly a year of planning, designing, sourcing, and building, we’re launching Added Time Outfitters with five original designs for five historic matches from five of the world’s most popular sides.

Don’t see a design for your favorite team? Don’t worry… additional designs are already in the works! And for those who feel compelled to make a recommendation on who we design a new wristband for next — yes, we’re absolutely open to collaborations with like-minded clubs, brands, and organizations — drop your suggestion(s) here.

In the meantime, keep an eye on this space for updates on future products, special projects, promotions, and the inspirations we see in and around the beautiful game. And don’t forget to shop the “Match Collection” now.
