We’ll be the first to admit that the post-Super Bowl blues are all too real. Luckily, baseball season is just around the corner, and we’re longing to get our hands on some crowned-out swag before opening day at The K on April 2.

MADdenim owners and creators Dianna Smith, Avery Finch and McKenzie Smith gave us a sneak peak of what’s to come in their Kansas City Royals-themed line of handcrafted denim jackets. The mother, daughter and daughter-in-law trio started their business last September, when the crew hand-painted denim jackets for McKenzie’s birthday. By Thanksgiving, their jackets hit retail. Amid recent Super Bowl hype, the three women created and sold hundreds of jackets in a matter of weeks. Find MADdenim’s wearable works of art at Re: on the Plaza, Junque Drawer in Olathe, Sincerely, Ellis in the West Bottoms and on their online shop.
