Gameday fits have always been a huge and fun part of any sporting event, but the NFL has stepped up to the plate with the best fits. Almost every NFL team has posted about their team's fits on gameday and has garnered a lot of views from these posts. As the Super Bowl kicks off on February 12, I wanted to look back on some of the best fits teams competing: The Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles.
These are the fits that I find to be my favorites from the 2022 season and the ones that show the personalities of each player. Fashion is such a subjective topic that it is hard to pick the true “best” fit throughout the league. From suits to sweats, these players have shown their individual style as they walk into the arena.
1- Juan Thornhill - Kansas City Defensive Back. This psychedelic suit worn by Thornhill was one that immediately came to mind when I wanted to do this list. The suit, from Gents Play Book, is perfectly tailored and paired with the chain with “22” which completes the look.
2- Nakobe Dean - Philadelphia Eagles Linebacker. Nakobe almost took my number one spot for this suit. The green color is perfect, the tweed fabric, the simple necklace and the contrasting white shoes just make this look unforgettable.
3- DeVonta Smith - Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver. Smith showed up with this fit. From the clean flat brim hat, the matching white turtleneck and pants overlaid with a clean houndstooth jacket. Also rocking a Louis Vuitton Shark in Paris bag and a simple derby shoe.
4- L’Jarius Sneed - Kansas City Cornerback. Rolling into Arizona for the Super Bowl in style, Sneed was decked in a light pick suit with a light blue stripe throughout and paired with a white turtleneck. The fit also features the LVII hats for the game in his hand, the fit is just very clean.
5- Frank Clark - Kansas City Defensive End. Clark’s outfit is simple, but one that is more designer than you may expect. The statesman stars spirals from The Elder paired with Palm Angels black viscose lounge pants and the sunglasses is an understated look. I also love that Clark mixed the patterns with the cotton sweater up top and the leather bottoms.
6- Tommy Townsend - Kansas City Punter. While this fit may get a lot of questionable looks, it just exemplifies the midwest in an outfit. The Canadian tuxedo, aka denim on denim, with the arrowhead concho and the classic black cowboy hat this was a look I couldn’t leave out. Even though Townsend may be from Orlando, he truly showed up in the most midwest fashion and rocked it!
7- Jalen Hurts - Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback. As a Kansas State Wildcats fan, this fit was a hit for me. The different shades of purple and fabrics is a classic look. A simple leather jacket on top, with a special touch with the H brooch, and the “Breed of One” necklace the fit just screams classy. Hurts also gets a bonus point from me for his Instagram caption of “Purple Reign.”
8- Fletcher Cox - Philadelphia Eagles Defensive End. While this is not the only clean suit that Cox has worn, this one was just super cool to me. The reflection of lights on the suit creates a cool holographic effect. Cox has also paired the suit with a simple thick necklace and a classic watch peeking out of the sleeve.
9- Harrison Butker - Kansas City Chiefs Kicker. Butker showed up in November in a sleek red and white number that makes him look eligible for the Bachelor or the next Hallmark movie. The suit, from Houndstooth KC, was custom fitted for Butker in Kansas City. The fit has a classy and sleek look to it that is perfect for a winter game.
10- Kyzir White - Philadelphia Eagles Linebacker. While this look is not over the top or fancy, I just had to include a cozy fit on the list. The simple hoodie and sweats paired with the Nike Air Force Ones is just a super simple fit that looked amazing. You also can’t forget the Philadelphia hat to represent on the way in.
Now an expected and anticipated part of gameday, the fits are something to keep an eye out for. Once again, these fits were my personal favorites and ones that stood out to me from both teams. As Super Bowl LVII approaches, I am excited to see some more unique and individual styles from the Chiefs and Eagles!
