With the football season underway, now is the perfect time to show your support for your favorite NFL team. And while wearing your favorite player’s jersey may be acceptable attire while you’re at home or in the stadium, it might raise some eyebrows in an office setting. That being said, there are still plenty of ways you can demonstrate your football fandom at work without resorting to face painting or funny hats. Here are eight pieces of awesome NFL gear that you can wear in the office.
1. NFL team scarves
Football season also heralds the return of colder weather, which means it’s the perfect time to accent your regular winter wear with a scarf featuring your favorite NFL team. From bold graphics celebrating a team’s championship record, to subtler designs incorporating a team’s colors, there are scarves appropriate for both casual and conservative dress codes. Oh, and they’ll keep your neck warm too. You can find men’s scarves in various styles for all 32 NFL teams here.
2. NFL gloves
While most of us will probably never catch the game-winning touchdown at the Super Bowl, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. And whether you’re looking for authentic NFL receiver gloves, or just want something to keep your hands warm during the cold weather, there are a slew of officially licensed gloves in multiple styles from all the teams in the NFL. Now, next time someone in your fantasy football league tries to talk some trash, you can just raise your hands – enough said. From ski gloves to utility gloves, find your perfect pair of NFL team gloves right here.
3. NFL ties
Although you may want to run laps around the office with a giant foam finger every time your team wins a big game, workplace decorum usually keeps those impulses in check. Fortunately, there is a subtler, but still effective, way to take a victory lap in front of your coworkers. Next time you want to show off your team spirit, simply don one of these beautifully designed NFL ties. Each team offers several different styles of ties — including bowties — with designs that range from classic to bold. Gloating has never looked so good. You can find ties for all 32 NFL teams here.
4. NFL cufflinks
Cufflinks are another great way to show support for your favorite team without violating the office dress code. Featuring the official logos of each NFL team, these silver-plated cufflinks make the perfect accessories to the NFL team ties. You can find the NFL team cufflinks here.
5. NFL socks
No matter how conservative your office dress code is, chances are you can wear whatever kind of socks you want to. After all, for the most part, your socks will be covered by your shoes and pants. But that doesn’t mean these NFL team socks aren’t worth every penny. Available in a wide variety of styles and colors — including some with team logo graphics and others with images of popular players — these socks are a fun and comfortable way to show your team spirit. You can find the NFL team socks here.
6. NFL wallets
Friendly football wagers and fantasy league competitions are typical activities at most workplaces today. And whether you’re paying or collecting on a game’s outcome, these NFL team wallets will make sure your co-workers know where your football loyalties lie. While these wallets are available in several different styles, we especially like the leather versions that feature each team’s debossed logo. You can find NFL team wallets and money clips here.
7. NFL belts
Another great way to bring a little football fashion into the office is with these NFL team belts. With designs that range from flashy to subtle, these leather belts do more than just support your pants – they support your favorite NFL team. You can find belts for every NFL team right here.
8. NFL button-down shirts
While an official football jersey might look out of place in most office workplaces, these NFL team button-down shirts will blend right in. Available in a wide variety of colors and patterns, each of these classic button-down shirts features a small NFL team logo over the front left breast section. While any of these shirts would make appropriate business attire, we especially like the versions that incorporate each team’s official colors into a plaid design.
