2013 HEISMAN CEREMONY FASHION RECAP
There were no blond faux-hawks or Superman-themed socks as seen in 2011. There were no accessories as bold as Manti Te’os green and gold lei. Instead, the 2013 Heisman Trophy finalists were a bit more understated in their clothing choices.
Though they’re not yet as style-savvy as NFL pros, looking good remained an important part of the game. The collegiate stars made efforts to rack up style points during their night in the sartorial spotlight. For most, their fashion statements came in the form of neckwear. Bow ties, a vibrant pink hue, and plaid and paisley patterns rounded out the featured designs.
The final 2013 Heisman standings were as follows: Jameis Winston (Florida State); AJ McCarron (Alabama); Jordan Lynch (Northern Illinois); Andre Williams (Boston College); Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M); Tre Mason (Aubrn). A Glam Slam breaks down their Heisman ceremony fashions, in that order.
Jameis Winston: Winston, the Heisman Trophy winner, celebrated while donning a black suit with peak lapels, a crisp white shirt, a plaid tie and a patterned pocket square. He wore it well, right down to the matching striped socks.
AJ McCarron: McCarron tends to favor bow ties when it comes to his off-field fashion choices. The Heisman ceremony was no different. He paired a shiny gray suit with striped neckwear, in his team’s crimson and white hues. He told OANow.com:
“I’ve been wearing a bow tie for two years now. And it all started with watching a YouTube video,” McCarron said. “So thanks to YouTube, I guess.”
Jordan Lynch: For Lynch, a charcoal gray suit with a baby blue shirt and matching plaid tie made for a simple yet elegant ensemble, yet he should’ve swapped out those brown shoes.
Andre Williams: Williams chose to pair his dark patterned suit with a blue dress shirt and a brown paisley tie.
Johnny Manziel: Manziel dressed up his textured navy suit with a patterned shirt with white collar. He added some flair with an eye-catching pink tie. Manziel wore pink neckwear to last year’s ceremony, but the color did not bring him the same luck this time aorund.
Tre Mason: Mason stood out from the group, thanks to his light silver suit with striped bow tie. According to OANow.com, “Mason wanted to look ‘GQ’ for his big moment at the Heisman Trophy ceremony.”
“I just wanted to change stuff up, I just wanted to put a little swag to it,” Mason joked. “I picked it out right before I took the trip to Orlando (on Wednesday), I picked it out and just said: ‘Yeah, that’s going to be the one. I had to go Italian for the suit, do it a little different this time.”
