Game Day on a Budget

Gearing up for Football Saturdays, upperclassmen warn against the perils of being a ‘WalMart Wolverine,’ but we’re not all in a position to drop a couple hundred dollars on The M Den’s “Victor’s” Brand.

Start instead at the PTO Thrift Store (2280 S. Industrial Hwy) or the Salvation Army (behind the CVS off S. Industrial). The extra digging through scuffed bowling shoes and piles of duplicated “Bring It On” VHS tapes will be well worth it. Don’t be overwhelmed by the store’s size, just head to the men’s shirt section for a worn-in National Champs t-shirt or vintage jersey. While you’re at it, buy yourself a pair of high-waisted Levi’s to make into cutoffs. You know Urban Outfitters buys them in bulk and resells them for 60 bucks a pop, right?

If human interaction isn’t your thing, a number of stores like Victoria’s Secret and American Eagle have created online-only college apparel lines with hoodies, t-shirts, and hats, and, somewhat begrudgingly, I admit, most of the AE pieces are really cute.

For something trendier, Underground Printing’s ‘Bo Shembechler’ store in the Busch’s shopping center at South Main and Ann Arbor Saline Road, has both your standard striped Maize and Blue overalls mixed in with higher quality cozy sweatshirts for those colder game days, a younger-targeted alternative to The M Den with better pricing. (currently writing this wearing the Bo SIG Cozy Crew in denim color).
