2016 NFL DRAFT FASHION PLAY-BY-PLAY
Sleek suits, crop tops and spiked loafers made the red carpet rounds at last night’s NFL Draft. This year’s prospective players again turned to custom tailors to generate their own unique style statements. From the bow ties to the bling, the draft served as sartorial prep for the arena arrivals and trips to the post-game podium, once joining the league. A Glam Slam broke down the 2016 NFL Draft fashion play-by-play:
Ezekiel Elliot’s cropped dress shirt was the talk of the NFL Draft red carpet. The former Ohio State running back first made fashion waves, when wearing a crop-top jersey on the gridiron. Elliot’s NFL Draft attire was a one-of-a-kind design from Pantheon Limited. Pantheon Limited suits are designed by founder and fellow Columbus resident, Ethan Weisman. The company also outfitted Ohio State draftees including Darron Lee and Joey Bosa.
ALBA Legacy was the brand behind the Draft Day looks for Laremy Tunsil, A’Shawn Robinson and Robert Nkemdiche. Each opted for bow ties, with Tunsil choosing a black, white and gold color scheme and Robinson repping his alma mater in Alabama-themed hues. Nkemdiche left no detail unturned, adding flair to his all-black ensemble with a textured jacket with embellished lapels.
Elevee Lifestyle is often behind the NFL Draft styles of prospective players. Corey Coleman and Jalen Ramsey were on the roster of draftees they dressed this year. Designer Chandra Ferrer created the looks for Coleman and Ramsey, each perfectly polished from head-to-toe.
Ronny Stanley took the Draft Day stage dressed in a bespoke design from ESQ Clothing. His white tuxedo jacket was one of the evening’s standout style statements, and it helped to inspired his white and gold Christian Louboutin footwear.
