Our local ball teams, signature must-eats, even our accents can make each of us beam with pride over the place we call home. Now, Target wants to help you celebrate your roots with Local Pride by Todd Snyder, an exciting new collaboration featuring city-specific merch designed to celebrate hometown pride.

An award-winning American menswear designer in New York City and Iowa native, Todd Snyder has experienced both small-town life and big-city living. And if there’s one thing Todd has learned, it’s that each place has its own story to tell.
