A How-To Guide to Build Your Homemade Lions Fan Tailgating Outfit
We are down to the wire and there are only two games left in the season for the Lions, which means when you head out tailgate, you have to look your Lions best. When it comes to looking your best at the tailgate, it does not matter if you are a guy or gal, finding the best clothing that shows your love for the team is easy. All you have to do is navigate over to the official Detroit Lions online store where you will find just about anything you could ever need to look your best when tailgating.
For the guys who can’t leave the house without a hat, the only choice here is a Detroit Lions logo baseball cap. But this is not just any hat, it is the 9FIFTY Snapback Hat. It is cool with its raised logo and it is “THE” official draft hat that gets put on the noggin of those lucky college players that make the team.
For the ladies, there is an entire ine of hats that will look nothing but good when they are worn at the tailgate. And the good thing for the ladies is that the type of hat they can wear goes well beyond the normal cap. There are knit hats and even fuzzy Lions earmuffs.
Now you need a jersey. After all, you cannot head to a Lions tailgate wearing any old t-shirt. And here you have a selection from game jerseys starting at $45 all the way to the Elite Series of Nike jerseys that run around $300. The best part is that you can have the jerseys personalized with your own name on them or you can wear the name of your favorite player on your back.
If you have a little one going to the game and tailgate with you, there are infant sizes available, so your little football player will match dad.
Regardless if you get a jersey or not, what you must have is a Lions jacket. It doesn’t matter if it is a fleece hoodie with the Lions logo on it or for those who remember the movie “Beverly Hills Cop” with Eddie Murphy, you can also get a Detroit Lions Axel Foley leather jacket.
Now it is to the bottom half and for guys and gals, you have a choice of sweatpants with them team name printed up the leg. For the guys, the must-have is the Lions Sideline Nike KO Fleece Sweatpants. These hi-tech pants will keep you warm and you will look great while wearing them.
For the ladies, the Ladies Lateral Spirit Lions Pant is a comfortable cotton-blend fleece that not only keeps you warm but with the Lions logo up the left pant leg, they look great.
Honestly, the selection of Lions gear that will make you look great is nearly endless. Get out there before the holidays to buy some for yourself or the family!
