Sconnie Launches New Favre Shirts Ahead of Packers/Vikings Tilt

Wisconsin apparel company and Capital Entrepreneurs Member Sconnie.com is releasing new Brett Favre shirts leading up to the Packers vs. Vikings game on Nov. 1.  From their release:

Following the popularity of the “We’ll Never Forget You Brent” original Sconnie® design, Sconnie Nation has released a slew of new designs for Packer fans. The “Brent” shirts continue to fly off the shelves, with a flurry of increased demand as the Monday Night Football game approaches. In anticipation of the game, Sconnie Nation has released a limited edition green on gold version of the original “Brent” design, printed on ultra-comfortable American Apparel t-shirts.

Sconnie ran a contest for fans to submit their own ideas for a shirt. From the slew of hilarious and original ideas proposed by fans came three new designs – “Break Him”, “Brett’s Waffle House” and “Minnesota Dumpster Divers” which have also become wildly popular through online sales at www.sconnie.com. Also added to the lineup of shirt designs are Worst State Ever shirts, with the MN edition taking center stage this week.
