As far back as I can remember I have always loved playing sports. Watching them, whether it be on TV or in person has always been a different story; but I won’t bore you with the details. If I am going to a game I am also not much one to wear a jersey.
Aside from the fact that I don’t really think the jerseys do much to flatter me, I can list about 100 things that would be a better investment of your money when it comes to your wardrobe. More simply put, jerseys are just not my style. Some of you will likely comment that this is me being pretentious, I view it more as me knowing my limits. Either way, I realize that I am in the small minority of people who think this way; as per usual. And I am by no means trying to tell people that they shouldn’t wear jerseys. My purpose is to propose an alternative to doing so while still supporting your team. So then, what do I wear to a baseball game?
I prefer to take a somewhat understated approach to dressing for games. I am all for supporting whatever team it is I am rooting for so I think the key is to work in the team colors to the ensemble. In this case I was going to a Phillies game so the primary colors to weave in were red and white followed by blue. If I were going to an Eagles game then the primary color would be Eagles green, or for the flyers it would be orange. You get the idea…
To do so I wore a white shirt with a red belt and red hat. It seemed to work out nicely. All the while keeping things understated and flexible. As an alternative I could’ve worn a red or blue shirt, but I felt like being boring. Perhaps most importantly, however, my Figawi hat reminded me what spring and summer are really about: that little island in the sun. And no, I am not talking about Barbados.
What do you wear to a baseball game?
PS – If you find yourself at a Phillies game I recommend you indulge in a Schmitter, the heavenly sandwich pictured above.
