From tailored suits and designer bags to crazy costumes, these men dress to impress.
This week, more than ever, the eyes of our city are on the Eagles. And while the main concern is their game on on the pitch, their fashion game is nothing to sleep on. If you haven’t been paying attention, you’re not necessarily missing out on understanding anything football-related, but are depriving yourself of much joy—and why would you want that?
Custom candy-colored suits, haute couture streetwear, Philadelphia iconography, and even the occasional costume are just a few of the ways our Birds choose to express themselves with sartorial style. So, without further ado, let’s enjoy the damn beauty of it all.

From the time he was drafted, DeVonta Smith loved haberdasher Brian Alexander Lunsford’s impeccable suiting, wearing his skinny suit (here, immortalized in bobblehead form) that set the tone for his fashion journey. He would stick to Lunsford’s fashions, including this custom Barbiecore three-piece outfit:
He’s upped his game this season, adding some standout accessories (hello, Louis Vuitton x BAPE) to this Brian Alexander cut:
He even got teammate Quez Watkins in on it with this early season design. Shorts have never looked so stylish.
Smith, nicknamed “Skinny Batman” by Darius Slay, likes his suits so tight that Lunsford had to hide the zippers in his pants legs, Smith told ESPN in February.
Another custom designer fan? Quarterback Jalen Hurts, who also does not shy away from bright colors.
Hurts also has a more understated but no less elegant look:
These fashion endeavors have not gone unnoticed. The Eagles began highlighting pregame fashion choices on their social media as if every game day was Fashion Week.

Even better, Miles Sanders has started changing up his fashion choices every now and then, and that’s priceless.

He even demolished his own style. “That boy is clean,” he said of his pristine white Air Force 1s after name-checking some favorite streetwear brands—Gallery Dept. and Japanese import Capital.

Meanwhile, AJ Brown showed that he can also wear a striking suit…
But he’s just as chic in this retro 76ers jersey (along with Louis’ luggage, obvs).
Of course, not everyone on the team is focused on fashion. “I don’t like to play dress-up; I love playing football,” Jason Kelce said on his podcast (which he co-hosts with his brother Travis Kelce, tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs). His matchday attire is much more casual, infinitely more likely to be jeans and T-shirts than suits and ties.
For Halloween, Lane Johnson took on the Kelce look:

Speaking of dressing up, let’s not forget Kelce’s own viral moment: dressing up as Sean Astin’s character in 50 first dates before the December game against the Titans.
Who did it better: @JasonKelce or Doug Whitmore from “50 First Dates”? 😂

This was not the first time that Kelce had bared his scalp to devote himself a little. As a nod to Slay’s “Batman” assignments at wide receiver, Kelce appeared on the sidelines as “Fat Batman” around Halloween.
Slay shot back, “Sexy Batman.” We have to agree.
