Klayton Korver discusses Seer Outfitters, a t-shirt line created by Bulls sharp-shooter Kyle Korver, with all proceeds benefiting his foundation.

You'd be forgiven for doing a double-take while strolling through the lower-level of State Street's Block 37 this month. The guy manning the kiosk looks a lot like Bulls guard Kyle Korver, but if you make that mistake, it's for a good reason -- Korver's little brother, Klayton, is the president of Seer Outfitters, a clothing line that supports the baller's foundation.

The pop-up shop offers a full line of colorfully designed men's and women's T-shirts and hoodies.

Kyle Korver started the line back when he played for the Philadelphia 76ers, continued when he was traded to the Utah Jazz, and is now carrying on the tradition in Chicago.

Each T-shirt is $24.95, with all proceeds going directly to the foundation, which benefits underprivileged children.

And lest you think it's another case of an athlete supporting a cause in name only, Kyle Korver is actively involved. The former graphic design major green-lights all of the final designs and even designed some of the first shirts himself -- until he got kind of busy with his day job.

The pop-up shop will be located at Block 37 for the rest of the month and possibly into July, and Klay -- not Kyle -- gave us a tour.
