NY Times showcases 2015 NFL Draft Fashion

Who wore what – 2015 NFL Draft Fashion – The 2015 N.F.L Draft has been underway since Thursday. Rounds 1 – 3 have been completed with former Florida State QB Jameis Winston being selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the first draft pick. Rounds 4 – 7 of the N.F.L draft get underway around noon ET today.

In an article titled “At the N.F.L. Draft, Fashion Takes the Field”, the NY Times showcases “some of the best looks from the first day of the N.F.L draft” through the lens of their photographer Taylor Glascock. The images show a wide array of styles worn on the gold carpet, including this pair of gold spike-covered loafers from Christian Louboutin worn by Dante Fowler Jr.

In the New York times article, journalist Guy Trebay writes:

Sports stars in general are digging fashion lately, looking beyond their careers on the professional field even as they begin them. They are becoming increasingly mindful of such things as the sneaker contract that helped vault Michael Jordan to billionaire status; the style savvy that turned N.F.L. players like Victor Cruz and Colin Kaepernick into GQ cover stars and darlings; and canny design collaborations like the one the N.B.A. star Russell Westbrook recently entered into with Barneys New York.

We have to hand it to Dante Fowler. We love it when guys break the mold when it comes to fashion. So many guys try to conform their style to what will help them avoid labels.  A guy who can step out wearing spiky gold loafers with a red-trimmed white suit accessorized with a white and gold bow-tie gets out vote for dapper don of the moment.
