It’s #GreenBayWeek here at The MMQB, so this week’s Football Lifestyle column will be all about the Packers. I set out on two missions: to find some of the best Green Bay gear around and piece together a look for game day at Lambeau. Let’s get to it…
It would be easy for an unaffiliated fan to pick the Packers as his team to root for on Sundays. The franchise is steeped in history and tradition, and its green-and-gold color scheme, as well as its iconic logos, offer some of the best gear around. In honor of Green Bay’s 13 NFL titles, here are 13 selections for Packer fans to show off their fandom:
• How can you not love the cheese-colored football, from Green Bay brewery Titletown.
Game Day Gear
Told I was writing about Green Bay gear and what fans should wear to a game at Lambeau Field, a buddy joked, “Don’t Packers fans just wear TWO pairs of black jeans and a blaze orange parka when temperatures dip?” He’s a bitter Bears fan, so let’s pay him no mind.
The truth is, it’s all about the layers at Lambeau. (And yes, I live in Southern California now, but I did nine years hard winter time in the Northeast and Midwest, so I am properly accredited to dole out cold clothing advice.) Here’s a look at what I came up with:
• You don’t want any part of wet feet—Sunday calls for snow, for example—so make sure your shoes are waterproof. Bonus here: These Woolrich boots are called the “Packer” so how can you wear anything else?
• The signature piece of this ensemble is the vest, which pulls triple duty: it will keep your core warm, allow for unrestricted movement and look awesome with that old-school logo and helmet-stripe collar.
