    Have never been to a tailgate, as I’m from the U.K but I’d imagine this is how I’d dress. Seems like a great time to experiment with technical fabrics as well.

    Just saw this article.

    Recommendations or sources for more affordable sweaters? $125 is a little steep for me.

      I’m there with you on the sweater price. I bought a letter from Etsy after a google search for “varsity Letter” and made my own with an existing sweater.
