It’s no secret that I have a lot of love for the city of Milwaukee and have debatably overdone it with wearing multiple local apparel items at one time (a Milwaukee branded hat, a t-shirt, and even a hoodie… a walking promotional billboard for the city).

The first 5 are my picks and the last 5 are his.
