6 Game Day Gents’ Outfits: Stadium, Favorite Bar, or Home

An ideal day of football includes great food and drinks, even better company, and hopefully, excellent odds that your team will win. Let’s throw a little bit of personal style into that equation, too. After all, whether you’re home, at your favorite bar, or heading to the stadium to watch some football live, you have to get dressed. So you might as well look good, while you properly represent. We talked about the 3 most common ways to spend Game Day in this week’s “Clothes & Conversation” . Most importantly, we want to ensure you are comfortable and, as always, modernly appropriate. We’ve got 2 outfits for each type of viewing fun.
If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. We hope the day ends in good times, laughter, and a win for your team. Let us know how it goes in the comments below or on social media. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.
http://www.neimanmarcus.com/Peter-Millar-Indiana-University-Striped-Gameday-College-Polo-Shirt/prod172570279_cat13140748__/p.prod
Peter Millar - a brand we always look to for high quality, modern fit that works for every gent, and timeless style – has a Collegiate Collection so you can represent your alma mater in a grown-up way. Ditch that old t-shirt and go with this striped cotton polo, instead. It’s an easy alternative for your jeans and khaki’s. We’re showing you the Indiana University version, so you can see how well done the logo embroidery is done. Click through this link to find your school.

Watching the Game at Someone’s House or Your Own. Outfit 1. Whether you are hosting or attending a football get together, a gent needs to show his school spirit. And it doesn’t need to be head-to-toe to show your enthusiasm. Start with Nike’s raglan sleeve t-shirt. It has that broken-in look, like you’ve had since your school days, but we bet none of your college t-shirts are looking this good. A large logo t-shirt like this looks great layered under a cardigan, button up, or zip-up, since it will still be visible. If University of Illinois isn’t your school, check out the full offering of this Nike style.

You can still show a little practical game day style, by adding J.Crew’s cotton cashmere zip sweater jacket over the featured college t-shirt in this outfit. With the styling of a track jacket, the chunky knit fabric gives it a modern edge – great if you’re having people over or heading to a party. And hey, if your team is losing, you can zip this jacket right up and slink out. We’re featuring the versatile navy, but it comes in other great neutrals through the ‘shop it’ button, too.

Instead of your favorite jeans, these corduroys from Bonobos are just as comfortable. The fabric is French milled and super soft, with a touch of stretch for sitting and snacking for hours – and they’ll still look good when the game is over. This graphite grey is the perfect neutral to offset any team colors, especially the ones in this outfit. Bonobos always nails the fit, available in 3 options: Tailored (the trimmest, contemporary fit), Straight (a modern “everyman” fit that is still updated and current), and Slim (which is in between the two). Besides choosing your waist size, you can also choose an inseam length that is right for you.

If you’re leaving the house, you’ll need a pair of shoes. Finish this casual outfit with UGG’s equally casual-looking chukka boot. They’re more polished than a pair of sneakers, but not stiff or heavy like a traditional pair of shoes or boots. The best part is that they come with interchangeable insoles. One has traditional cushioning, and the other is a shearling like wool that will keep your feet warm, so you can wear these to the stadium, too.

Watching the Game at Someone’s House or Your Own. Outfit 2. When you want a bit more polished and subtle way to show you school pride, Peter Millar’s knit polo will have you doing it in effortless casual style. Known for their easy, modern fit and timeless look, the double mercerized Egyptian cotton fabric will stand the test of time – giving you countless opportunities to make this part of your game day uniform. While this polo is great with jeans or khaki’s for the most casual of get together, the fabric and finishes are so fine, it allows for a bit of dressing up, too. We’re showing the Notre Dame version, but click through this link to find your school.

The polo in this outfit can become part of a more dapper, casual look with just a few key pieces. Start with this navy quilted cotton blazer from Brooks Brothers. The relaxed modern fit, and quilted fabric give it a “watching the game outdoors” look, so it doesn’t feel at all stuffy. It is softly constructed, so it’s just as comfortable as a cardigan, and fits like one, too. Don’t forget to keep the jacket unbuttoned so everyone can see your team logo.

Keep the upscale casual vibe of this outfit going with the Peter Millar’s flat front cotton twill pants. The timeless, modern fit works with the polo and jacket, as does this rich and neutral British tan color. You’ll be as comfortable as you are in your jeans, but you’ll certainly have a sartorial edge. (Click through the ‘shop it’ button to check out all the great color options in these pants…you may need more than one.)

Nike - Men's Chicago Bears Matt Forte Game Alternate Color Jersey
Watching the Game at Your Favorite Bar. Outfit 1. This is the one occasion when wearing your favorite jersey out to a bar or restaurant is perfectly acceptable – and totally appropriate. So go for it. As natives of Chicago, we can’t help but show some love for this Chicago Bears Game jersey. The 100% recycled polyester top includes all the official NFL logos and markings, so you can really feel like one of the team. If you’re not a Bears fan, we can still be friends and you can find your team’s jersey here.

J.Crew - Long-sleeve Textured-cotton T-shirt
You need to wear something under the jersey we’re featuring in this outfit, and J.Crew’s long sleeve t-shirt is just right. The ribbed crewneck looks good with the v-neck of the jersey, and the longer sleeves give it a more polished feel that is appropriate for the setting and the Fall weather. In this case, the navy we’re featuring creates a smart monochromatic look with the navy Bears jersey, but any neutral (and there are several through the ‘shop it’ button) will work under a more colorful jersey. J.Crew’s easy, modern fit ensures any gent can wear it comfortably – it’s even made in Tall.

You’ve got to have a great pair of jeans to wear with your jersey. J Brand’s contemporary fit ensures you won’t look sloppy in its slim fit and straighter leg. They are still very comfortable though, and the subtle whiskering and distressing on the soft denim give them the perfectly worn-in look you want.

Tailgating & Watching the Game at the Stadium. Outfit 1. When the weather gets cold late in the season, you need the ultimate jacket to keep you warm in the stands. And for that, no one does it like Canada Goose. Their Summit down jacket is hip length, but it’s longer in the back so you can sit in comfort and still keep your backside warm against those metal seats. The 750 fill power duck down will even protect you in sub-zero temperatures. If you’re at the game and it’s colder than that, you’ll have to relay on your team loyalty – and the drinks in the cooler we’re suggesting below. This bright orange feels games day right, but there are other great colors to choose from through the ‘shop it’ button, too.
