Up first is Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end, Travis Kelce who is styled in a Rochambeau wool and houndstooth coat. The black and white grandfather style coat is painted on with red paint, viewable from the back. This effortless and artistic outfit coincides with his nonchalant style, who is pictured with a hat backwards, all black ensemble underneath, and accessorized with black gloves. The beloved Kansas quarterback Patrick Mahomes II however, opts for a clean blue checkered suit combo, unbutton collar—no tie. Mahomes takes a different route for accessories: sunglasses, headphones, jewelry, and don’t forget the handkerchief. This duo is well-coordinated, both featuring monogrammed luggage. 

Next, features 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, bringing competition with another blue and checker pantsuit. Noticeable differences include minimalistic approach. Rather, personal style is shown through choice of luggage. Last but not least, San Fran’s cornerback might not be super-fan of checkers for game day, but is seen pairing a checkered shirt with his RSPCT collection. Richard Sherman is giving us clean and professional vibes. Teammates are seen matching simple uniforms on and off the field.
