Jeremy Symons, owner of Marquette-based Yooper Shirts, will be launching his new clothing line, MI Apparel.

Pronounced “My Apparel,” this line will feature designs tributing Michigan sports teams on unisex T-shirts, baseball-style shirts, zip-up hoodies, custom iPhone cases and various other products.

“I’ve been a huge NMU hockey, Detroit Tigers, Pistons and Red Wings fan since I was a kid,” Symons said. “Growing up playing these sports, I was always drawing and creating my own characters and designing uniforms and shirts.”

After having success with Yooper Shirts since its creation in 2009, Symons was inspired to create MI Apparel.

“The quality of the shirt is different and our focus is more on the entire state of Michigan and its sports teams,” Symons said.

Starting Thursday, March 15, MI Apparel products will be available for purchase online at and are made of American materials.
