Like it or not, football season has begun! It is my strongly held conviction that sports should provide no excuse for abandoning your personal style or your personal code of ethics. It's fun to wear an official jersey from your favorite team, but most of them are made in factories in far flung locales under questionable or totally unknown worker conditions. Instead, why not wear a vintage or gently used jersey?
I'm not the biggest football fan around, but when I sat down at Old Glory in Georgetown to have a few beers and watch the first Redskins game of the season with my friend Sarah, I wanted to be supportive of her major #HTTR spirit. So, I donned one of my favorite vintage t-shirts in the burgundy and yellow colors the Skins, and got ready to cheer. The slouchy boyfriend jeans I wore with it are Lucky Brand, and proudly made in the USA (similar here).
Just in case you don't have a vintage t-shirt that works, I've rounded up a few of my favorite vintage football tees from Etsy:
