Upping Your Fall Football Game

090314_Fall-Football-Style-hed

As you may have noticed, it’s Fashion Week in NYC, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still Football Week here on Kempt.

Here’s how you’ll up your football game this fall...»

The Sports-Menswear Collaborations We’d Like to See Next

Menswear

It’s been a big week for collaborations.

While yesterday’s unveiling of the Kanye x A.P.C. collection has been getting most of the #menswear attention, we found ourselves more interested in another transatlantic collaboration that came through on the wire: Brooks Brothers announcing their new partnership with Italian soccer club Inter Milan.

It had us wondering why such an American brand would have to go overseas to outfit a sports team—especially with dapperness in locker rooms and postgame press conferences on the rise in the US. It would be a natural progression for, say, the Knicks to step off their team bus all kitted out in Michael Bastian—as opposed to the Detroit Lions, who seem more like Mark McNairy New Amsterdam kind of guys.

And since we’re the sort of menswear journalists who answer “Why?” with “Why not?” we’ve gone ahead and dreamed up a few style collaborations we’d like to see happen in American sports, based on who’d work best together.»
