Spirited Fashion - Tebow Style

Posted on April 29, 2010 by janamathena | 1 Comment

He’s at it again. Tim Tebow is setting records in the NFL and he hasn’t even started his first season yet. As I previously mentioned, I bet that Tebow wouldn’t be drafted in the first round. I was wrong. Since being drafted by Denver, Tim Tebow’s #15 Bronco’s jersey is the fastest-selling rookie jersey of all-time. And apparently there isn’t a very close second place.

I still feel as passionately about the guy as I always have. There just has to be more to his story. And apparently I’m not the only one. Bronco’s blogs and message boards received polar reviews of the pick, yet nothing really down the middle. So good or bad, he’s definitely publicity for the team.

I’ll admit, if Tebow decided he liked Gameday Cloth and wanted some Univeristy of Florida gear, I would get it for him. Personally. And hand write the thank you note. Then drive it to him and take a picture of him wearing it.

I still feel the same. I just know Tebow repping your company is not a bad thing.

So fans will be showing up to Bronco’s games (and probably UF games) in the new Bronco’s #15 jersey. The fashionista in me has to object. Can’t there be some originality? Will everyone look the same?

I propose a vintage Gator T-shirt. Ironically, the colors for each team are very similar and everyone would know who you were supporting and envy how good you looked simultaneously. You can wear it to the game, wear it on the weekend and wear it to a casual job under a blazer. Where are you going to wear a jersey outside of a tailgate? And how much does that jersey cost?

And say you’re following the #1 draft pick, Sam Bradford. If you wore an old-school Oklahoma Tshirt, let’s make it white with red lettering to keep from accidentally supporting the opposing team in red, everyone would know who you were cheering for.

Let’s face it, the NFL is all about the players you support more than the team they play for. I bet that’s especially true in Tebow’s case. No matter who he plays for, his loyal followers will shun the colors from the previous team and refill their closet in the new team colors. Isn’t it just easier to rock out in Florida gear?

That's the tagline for Opolis Clothing, an Oklahoma-based collegiate wear company. Since 2008, the company has been manufacturing new products in high quality with that vintage look people can't get enough of. Here at Gameday Cloth, we are no different. I couldn't resist our SMU women's tee. It comes out of the wash, and I wear it again. And the cool stuff we're ordering for the Fall - trust me, you can't wait either!

Co-founders Zac Holland and Pat Waddell met in middle school, but didn't come up with the company idea until after both graduated from the University of Oklahoma. As two graduates working on a small business ourselves, we have a soft spot in our heart for their story; it just so happens the product is great on its own.

Currently Gameday Cloth offers Opolis Clothing for Southern Methodist University and Texas Christian University, but are looking into their products for Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas schools as well.

It isn't just local attention they're attracting. Check out this shot of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver, Mark Clayton in an Opolis T-shirt with Michael Phelps.

If you haven't tried out this new company yet, it's definitely time you did.

One of the brands we carry at Gameday Cloth, The Original Retro Brand, isn't just one of our favorites, but a celeb fav as well. In fact, when watching the not so funny movie "Funny People" recently, I noticed Adam Sandler rocking out at least four of the companies vintage T's.

Also a big fan? Jessica Simpson in both  Texas and UCLA shirt. And OUR personal favorite? Ashton Kutcher rocking out our Texas Bevo Tshirt.

Currently at Gameday we focus on collegiate brands. It's kind of our thing. But it doesn't mean we don't like to see good lookin' people sporting good lookin' clothes for pro teams.


Yummy.

Check out all of our Original Retro Brand options on the Gameday Cloth web site and don't be afraid to suggest your favorite school.

Scott and I spent the last two Fridays scouring Dallas Market Hall for the latest, greatest and most fantastic sportswear and college wear fashion has to offer. It's a bold statement, but we found it. I cannot wait to get in the stuff we found. We ordered new TCU hats from both TOW (Top of the World) and Legacy Athletic. We ordered awesome new men's and women's T-shirts from Original Retro Brand, Red Jacket and Opilis Clothing for SMU, TCU, Ohio State, Texas, Miami and Texas A&M. Check the Gameday Cloth web site because it's all going to start arriving soon!

Aren't you just so excited?
