Looking for leggings with Detroit-themed style? “Detroit Has Legs,” with all the profits going to benefit the nonprofit Cass Community Social Services, might just be your ticket.

Skinnytees, an online retailer based in Birmingham makes these custom women’s leggings that feature 32 iconic Detroit buildings, sculpture and sites throughout the city.

They’re available in sizes XS through 3XL online for $56 here.

“Our team wanted to design an item that showcases our beloved city of Detroit in a visual and impactful way,” said Linda Schlesinger-Wagner, founder of Skinnytees. “Detroit Has Legs is only the beginning of the expansion of our brand’s themed clothing, and we look forward to providing our customers with more custom-made designs.”

According to the company, pulling this project together took a year, from finding the sublimation printer and contractor that could make the visuals work in the fabric.

Each pair of leggings is made in the United States, one at a time. The legging fabric is rolled out on all sides so that each Detroit photo can be cut out individually and printed on the fabric.

Once the images are cut and printed, the dye-sublimation process begins that applies the images to the fabric with sublimation ink, heat and pressure.

If you’ve seen Skinnytees before, it’s because they’ve been on Good Morning America, The View and QVC. Skinnytees also earned a spot on the 2017 Inc. 5000 as one of nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
