Although football season has just begun and Mississippi State fans are waiting to unveil their game day attire for Saturday, Starkville clothing stores have spent months gearing up for game day fashion.
Erin Ray, owner of Denim and Lace, said she began looking for football season clothes in May, with shipments arriving in late July.
“I try to have stuff early so locals can buy stuff up before college kids get here,” Ray said. “But because of Maroon Friday (when locals are encouraged to wear maroon each Friday) I kind of look year round. If I find maroon stuff I get it in, but I get big shipments in a week before school starts.”
