Good news for all the 12-year-old Racked readers out there: There will be a Jonas Brothers clothing line. The tween gear will be sold at Wal-Mart, Kmart, Sears and J.C. Penney. "The apparel collection, called Jonas, will follow the launch of the Disney Channel’s highly anticipated “Jonas” TV show, which is set to begin airing in May...the brothers aren’t involved with the design of the product since the clothing is based on the characters they play on the show, not on their real day-to-day lives."
