You’ve got a high-stakes poker game coming up and you want to dress the part—fashionable but casual, like you do this all the time. You want Jacks & Jokers.
Scot Lerner started J & J a couple years ago while working on an online gaming project with Bicycle Cards. For fun, he started making himself T-shirts, using the logo from the United States Playing Card Company. Before long, everybody wanted one. So Lerner licensed the classic playing card art and started the brand, with all the merchandise made in the USA.
