on Bentley, the stripes seem to come from the 1880's and 1890's:
1889 with stripes:
1894 with block M:
1899 stripes with vest over:
Yes they are ugly versus the purity of our home jerseys. But, if Notre Dame's are something historically similar, I think this is a pretty cool reference to the past for two programs with a very long history. Much better than a simple maize jersey.
Note the striped socks in the 1894 photo.
It also might make for a cool baseball sleeve length t shirt.
FWIW, I liked the Big Chill jerseys - the ones that the team wore, not the cheese ball bright yellow retail versions.
