5 Authentic Crew Neck Sweatshirts for the True Midwesterner

5 Authentic Crew Neck Sweatshirts for the True Midwesterner

The glow of each sunset, the slow change in leaf color during the fall, evening walks in the park, and don’t forget the casual yet exotically versatile sense of style the people here have. 

Walk into any park today and try not to spot the:

  • Vintage and retro-inspired apparel 
  • Soft French crew neck lining
  • Perfect blend of light, youthful inspiration with thick, warm fall wear 

Take a long enough stroll and it might actually start to feel like everyone from Ohio to Toledo made a fashion pact!

If you’ve been looking to furnish your closet with fresh, new sweatshirts, we have some pretty nifty design ideas ready for you. 

These pieces are meant to summon up all those beautiful memories of places, people, and other things that so nostalgically color your vision of the Midwest! 

1 - Midwesterner Mint Embroidered Sweatshirt

green, mint embroidered sweatshirt

The Heartland. The Midwest. Middle America. This well-crafted, casual, and durable crew sweatshirt sports an aesthetic that every Midwesterner is bound to love. 

Versatile enough for such Midwestern legends as Aretha Franklin, Betty White, and Terry Crews, this crew neck sweatshirt will express your pride with decency and respect.  

It’s a relaxed and unisex fit—loose, yes, but structured enough at the seams for any shoulder build.

A few more details about this mint sweatshirt: 

  • Pigment-dyed, and the process embellishes each shirt with its own unique character
  • An 80-to-20 cotton-polyester blend provides a soft, comfy fabric feel, but expect some color variance after washing
  • This sweat should be washed in cold water to stop the dye pigment from staining during the wash cycle

2 - Ohioan Embroidered Sweatshirt

pink, warm Ohio-inspired sweatshirt

We’re sure you’ve been seeing the Ohio-inspired crew neck tees and sweatshirts out there. Well, we doubt that there are any of them that can quite match up to this one. 

Look at it. No, really. Look at it. What’s not to love about its carefully dyed fabric; the minimalist, comfortably classic embroidery? 

With its relaxed and unisex fit—loose, yes, but structured enough at the seams for any silhouette—this really is the ideal sweatshirt for the Ohioan who hasn’t yet found the right way to express his home pride. 

A few more details about this sweatshirt:

  • Pigment-dyed, and the process embellishes each fit with its own unique character
  • An 80-to-20 cotton-polyester blend provides a soft, comfy fabric feel, but expect some color variance after washing
  • This sweat should be washed in cold water to stop the dye pigment from staining during the wash cycle

3 - The University of Toledo Embroidered Sweatshirt

yellow, branded University of Toledo sweatshirt

Been looking to relive or rediscover that piece of University of Toledo-inspired clothing that you haven’t been able to shake off after all these years? 

Well, this yellow branded sweatshirt is the perfect place to start. 

Sporting a relaxed design—a tad looser than the previous profiles, but still structured enough at the seams—this embroidered crew neck sweatshirt is one of our more popular releases. 

And for good reason: the deliberately oversized design, the hardly subtle sunset undertone, the text embroidery beset expertly upon pigment dyed fabric—this shirt offers everything and more. 

A few more details about this sweatshirt: 

  • Officially licensed by The University of Toledo
  • Pigment-dyed, and the process embellishes each fit with its own unique character
  • An 80-to-20 cotton-polyester blend provides a soft, comfy fabric feel, but expect some color variance after washing
  • This sweat should be washed in cold water to stop the dye pigment from staining during the wash cycle

4 - Great Lakes Blue Embroidered Sweatshirt

light blue, branded Great Lakes sweatshirt

The really cool thing about summer evenings (see what we did there?) in the Midwest—the Great Lakes, in particular—has to be the feeling of the dusk wind hitting your face just as it comes off the lake. 

This crisp, unisex embroidered crew neck shirt is the perfect attire for an evening spent bundled up next to a fire or for a breezy afternoon sitting at the end of a dock. Or maybe you’d prefer to wear it in your dining area, as you sip your end-of-day cup of tea. 

More details about this sweatshirt: 

  • An 80-to-20 cotton-polyester blend provides a soft, comfy fabric feel, but expect some color variance after washing
  • Pigment-dyed, and the process embellishes each fit with its own unique character
  • A relaxed and unisex fit—loose, yes, but structured enough at the seams for any shoulder build
  • This sweat should be washed in cold water to stop the dye pigment from staining during the wash cycle

5 - Pick it Up I'm Going Alone Euchre Crew Sweatshirt

pick it up euchre crew sweatshirt

Euchre really is the ideal, all-year-round family card game. If you hail from the special part of the Midwest or one of those lucky places outside of it that play, then you know there is nothing better than finding a group of four to play a game of euchre with.  

If your closet doesn’t have this sweatshirt yet, here’s your chance! 

This subtly chic, screen printed sweatshirt will give you that vintage, retro feel you’ve been looking for—don’t be surprised when your old man insists that you have never beat him in a regulation game. 

It also features: 

  • Really soft and comfy solid black poly/cotton material  
  • Should be washed inside-out using a delicate cold water cycle

Frequently Asked Questions

Will Jupmode’s sweatshirts eventually shrink? 

Our sweatshirt fleeces are specially cleaned before Jupmode receives them to ensure that they’re pre-shrunk and softer to the touch. That said, the fleeces could shrink if they’re dried using too much heat. We advise that you tumble dry your sweatshirt and that you wash it in cold or lukewarm water only.

How long will an online order take to deliver?

Jupmode ships their items using USPS, and if the ordered apparel is in stock, the shipping process will take 7 to 10 days. Check for an email containing tracking information once your item is confirmed to have shipped out. 

We offer two options for shipping (determined by your package’s weight): the “Standard” option (which costs $3.95) and the “Priority” option (which costs $7.95). For orders above $75, we will ship your order for free. Returns are also free if you’re unsatisfied with your order. 

Does Jupmode make custom t-shirts? 

Yes! Jupmode offers custom embroidery, screen printing, and other promotional apparel including mugs, t-shirts, stickers, lanyards, jackets, sweatshirts, bags, signs, and hats.
