We're now officially one day from kick-off to the 2015 NFL Season, and here in the Blue Owl Workshop offices, we couldn't be more excited. Whether it's playing in your flag football league, watching your favorite team at the local sports bar, or drafting your fantasy football team in hopes of avenging last season's 8th place finish (better get on that), football fever is among us, and this time on Sunday we'll be knee deep in Week 1 of the NFL season. To commemorate this occasion, we've put together three outfits that'll serve you well in whichever way you're celebrating over the next few weeks.
Don't make the rookie mistake of wearing jeans you can't move in during your pick-up game this fall. Instead, opt for some stretch fabric for maximum mobility. In this case, we look to the Naked & Famous Slub Stretch fabric, which is the rare example of denim made with stretch fabric that not only has lots of texture, but ages incredibly well. On top of the jeans, throw on the wings + horns 1x1 Slub Henley. This henley comes in wings + horns' signature 1x1 Slub fabric, which is a lightweight fabric with tons of texture built in. The lightweight material makes it easy to push the sleeves up if you work up a sweat. Depending on your weather situation, you may need an extra layer, in which case we recommend the Hybridge Lite Vest from Canada Goose. This vest will provide you with the extra warmth you need, and is easy to remove if you get too warm. Finish things off with these Leather Low-Top Sneakers from wings + horns and go win yourself a Heisman Trophy.
Whether you're at the stadium or watching the game at the local sports bar, you've got to make sure you come prepared for anything. That's why we recommend bringing some jeans that can take a beating, like the Unbranded 21oz, pictured here. At the modest price of $110, this super-heavyweight denim is built to withstand anything from a post-game celebration to spilled beer. You'll need easy access to your jersey of choice as well, which is why the Reigning Champ Zip Hoodie is the perfect layer. The midweight fabric provides plenty of warmth for your typical fall afternoon, and the double zipper make it extremely easy to take off upon entering a bar or your friend's house. Don't forget some boots that are not only durable, but extremely comfortable like the Oak Street Dainite Trench Boot, and a durable belt like this one from Tanner Goods. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, don't forget the Corter Leather Key Hook for all of your convenient beer and bottle opening needs.
The ultimate in leisure competitive sports, fantasy football has taken friend groups across America by storm. Dress for (leisurely) success and draft your team in style and comfort with this combination of N. Hoolywood Paneled Wool Crewneck Sweater and wings + horns Cabin Fleece Sweatpant. For ultimate luxury, complete this look with the wings + horns Leather Low-Top Slip-On just in case you need to step outside of the house for more snacks.
