Beyond the field, the NFL‘s fashion game is something that cannot be disregarded.
Players differ with their pre-game attire, ranging from dapper to casual.
There are some who might enter the locker room as if they were attending the Met Gala.
Likewise, some players look as if they never left the house.
Still, it’s how they perform on the field that matters.
They can wear whatever they want as long as they get 100 yards or two sacks.
But just like in general fashion, trends come and go.
That said, NBC Sports Edge’s Thor Nystrom had a plea for NFL coaches.

Nystrom tweeted, “Take me back to a simpler time when NFL coaches wore starter jackets on the sidelines.”
The jacket serves several purposes anyway.
First, it already indicates the team they are coaching for, making it a must-buy for die-hard fans.
Second, it’s perfect for cold-weather games because it can help them keep warm.
Third, it’s a throwback to the era at the time.
Will These Jackets Come Back?
It’s difficult to imagine these bad boys will be in circulation again, especially when New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick would prefer something like this.
Likewise, coaches would rather put on either collared or dri-fit shirts when working.
It would be nice for the league to include these jackets during designated throwback weeks.
As the players don uniforms of the past, coaches should also follow suit and wear their team’s jackets.
Who knows, it could be the superstition that can bring them a lengthy winning streak, a playoff berth, or a Super Bowl win.
