Honestly? Strong choice. The rickracky stripes simultaneously lend an overall air of folksiness to the outfits sure to be popular in the Midwest, and a homespun craftiness that’ll be a big hit with the trendy Etsy set. Market these jerseys as “artisanal” and watch the cash roll in in waves. You’re welcome.
