Happy Monday Everyone.
We’ve curated a list of the best dressed NFL players of this past week. Enjoy!
Brandon Marshall, Wide Receiver for the New York Jets turned heads this week with this all black number. Or, almost all black. Marshall took this classic casual look to new levels with the addition of a muted American flag scarf. This patriotic accessory, designed by John Varvatos, is a tasteful take on the old stars and stripes. The scarf, combined with a sleek duffle courtesy of Grateful Apparel, and Pharrel-esque black bucket hat, puts Brandon Marshall at the top of the Must-See list in Menswear.
Jarryd Hayne of the San Francisco 49ers has his game face on and an outfit to match. This can’t be what his coach had in mind when told Hayne to “suit up,” but I’m not mad about it. Sporting a matte navy sport jacket with matching pants and a crisp, clean white shirt, Hayne’s look is in line with a recent trend in fall sports style that focuses on deep, dark colors. At first glance, it might appear that Hayne has jumped on the bowtie-pocket square bandwagon, but this writer begs to differ. Instead of perfectly matching these two accessories, or choosing bold contrasting colors, Hayne picks two colors that are adjacent on the color wheel, and rarely seen in the same outfit: pink and red. This innovative pairing breathes new life into a look that might otherwise be considered, well, basic.
New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady may have had some controversy in his life lately, but this outfit does everything by the book. Whoever said the double-breasted suit was dead must be eating their words; cause Tom Brady is proof of its vitality. This navy number works perfectly with Brady’s hair color and skin tone, and his five o’clock shadow gives this traditionally elegant, almost regal look a much more casual feel. Designed by Tom Ford, this suit makes one thing abundantly clear: two Tom’s is better than one.
Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers appears deep in thought, contemplating life’s mysteries…or just trying to remember if he left the oven on. Either way, his outfit is on fleek. With an outfit designed by Mr. Porter Live, Kaepernick is staking his claim in the Men’s Fashion world, and he’s doing it well. Rocking a varsity jacket over a camel cashmere sweater and slouchy black trousers, Kaepernick makes this comfy-casual look seem polished and put together.
Kam Chancellor of the Seattle Seahawks looked fresh and clean in his Sunday duds. Sporting a double-breasted suit jacket and flat brim black bowler hat, this athlete looks more ready for a Sunday service than a football game. His speckled grey and black trousers pull this look together in a predominately monochromatic color pallet. With both a Gucci and Prada bag in tow, Chancellor is a football Fashionisto from beginning to end.
Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots looked more like a model than a football star in this runway ready ensemble. Sporting a steel blue sport coat and matching pants, Edelman looks sleek, strong, and prepared for anything. Paired with a navy blue and crimson graphic tee, this outfit manages to look casual and polished all at the same time. But what’s a baller outfit without the bling to match? Edelman’s bold gold watch with a dark blue face stands out while still tying the ensemble together by incorporating colors from the rest of the look.
Buffalo Bills player Nigel Bradham brought out the big guns in this classic plaid suit. Just like on the field, it’s Bradham’s attention to detail that really makes this look a victory. The navy blue tie coordinates perfectly with the navy lining in the plaid pattern, and when paired with a crisp white shirt and matching pocket square, Bradham looks like he’s headed for Wall Street. But the real hero of this look isn’t his well-tailored Elevee Original suit, but his wrist wear. Bradham must be a style boss, who else could pull of TWO gold watches? Maybe this Buffalo Bill needs a doubled reminder when it’s GAME TIME.

Rashad Jennings, Running Back for the New York Giants, gets a Giant thumbs up for this look. Wearing a two-tone suede varsity jacket by All Saints Live, Jennings makes sure that his athletic identity is present on and off the field. His camel slacks and hide-away button white shirt by Melinda Gloss work to polish and perfect this work hard play hard aesthetic. Top it all off with a pair of classic thick soled sneaks by Givenchy, and you’ve got a playful yet effortlessly iconic ensemble.
Von Miller of the Denver Broncos demanded the attention of the Menswear world in a suit that can only be described as…purple. Really, really purple. This metallic number turned heads in a big way as Miller exited the Broncos jet, and it’s easy to see why. While this suit was certainly a bold move, Miller somehow manages is to pull it off. Despite deviating from the color pallet trends we’ve seen so far this fall, Miller still stuck to the basics with a classic white shirt, deep navy tie combo. This look is far from subtle, but this writer would love to see more risk takers and rule breakers on the NFL Fashion scene.
Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints is breezing on into this style round up with a modern take on a retro classic. So far this fall, we’ve seen a lot of deep blues and gold, but Brees is here to remind us that burgundy is back. Pairing burnt burgundy slacks with a retro-chic black and gray checkered sport coat, Brees successfully revamps a classic look from the late seventies. Even with his wrist wear, Brees opts for a less flashy, almost nautical looking sport watch complete with brown leather band and silver/taupe face. Drew Brees’ look is living, breathing proof that simple can be stylish, and subtle can be classic.
