We’re back again with another weekly edition of our NFL’s best-dressed list. Last week we made a little detour and handed out some midseason awards, crowning some of the best (and worst) looks that we’ve seen to date. This week we’re back on the grind, so without further ado here’s this week’s list.
5. Landon Collins
After a great win over their division rival Philadelphia Eagles, the New York Giants were probably feeling pretty good in the locker room. Giants safety Landon Collins helped keep the mojo going strong in his postgame interview with this incredible cowl neck sweater. This type of thing definitely doesn’t work on everybody, but here it’s simple and effective.
4. Melvin Gordon
Bomber jackets are in this year. Period. According to Google’s 2016 fashion trend report, interest in bomber jackets has risen over 600% since last year. Military inspired clothing is the biggest thing in fashion right now thanks to Kanye, and the simplistic, rugged style that bomber jackets bring is a large part of that. Melvin Gordon went with an all-white one this week, and he set it off nicely with a black and white striped tee.
3. Cameron Wake
The #3 spot this week is where things start to get interesting. We saw a couple different takes on the vest-and-dress shirt combo this week with Cameron Wake’s look just losing out to #2 on the list. The Miami Dolphins defensive end stepped to the podium in a simple, effective look. Nothing too flashy here, just a well-tailored shirt and vest, accompanied by a pocket square which adds a dimension of color that the outfit would be lacking otherwise.
2. Brandon Marshall
No, not that Brandon Marshall. The Jets star wide receiver looked alright this week, but this Brandon Marshall was on another level. The Broncos linebacker went with his team’s blue and orange color scheme, but didn’t fall into the trap of corniness that’s usually associated with team colors.
1. Cam Newton
Well, he did it again. What else did you expect? Cam’s style game remains best in the league (except for those unforgivable cheese shoes).
