No matter the time of the year, Michigan will always provide a chance to connect with your outdoorsy and adventurous side. From bonfires by the lake in the summer to ice-fishing in the winter.

Regardless of what activities you get up to, one thing remains true—it's essential to stay warm in the Mitten State, and what better way than with this beautifully embroidered sweatshirt?

The Michigander Embroidered Sweatshirt is perfect for any weather. Its classic crew design and loose fit make it perfect for layering to suit whatever season.

perfect for any weather

But that's not what makes this sweatshirt special. For that, we credit the 'MICHIGANDER' embroidery on the chest.

Michigander is not merely a title for someone who lives in the Mitten State. The name represents the love and pride Michiganders feel for their home state, and this sweatshirt allows them to carry this sentiment wherever they go.

This, we believe, is what makes the Michigander Embroidered Sweatshirt special and also what makes it the perfect gift for any Michigander in your life.

If you're from Michigan or Ohio, the phrase 'Up North' conjures up memories of the perfect getaway, no matter what time of the year.

Up North means fall road trips through the iconic Tunnel of Trees on the M-119, camping, and fishing on the Upper Peninsula, summertime on Mackinac Island, and winters skiing down Boyne Mountain.

This nostalgia and excitement for the next adventure are precisely what the Up North Embroidered Sweatshirt embodies.

It's an ode to the happy memories made in the Mitten State and a call to your crew to get together and hit the road to create some new memories.

With its relaxed unisex fit and comfy cotton-polyester blend material, it's the perfect wardrobe item for any weather conditions our great state will throw at you throughout the year.
