Seahawks fans will definitely not blend in wearing the ’47 Brand Stealth Camo Soft Washed Sweatshirt ($76 at fanatics.com). The on-trend camo print and bright green lettering and logo are a modern way to back the team.
Snapbacks continue to rule the cap game. Add some throwback flavor to the mix with the Seattle Seahawks New Era NFL Stripe Frontier Original Fit 9FIFTY Adjustable Hat ($30 at fanatics.com), with the old-school logo and script lettering.
Fan gear often places more emphasis on fun than sophistication, but Tommy Bahama’s NFL Pick Six T-Shirt ($88) gets the balance just right with a refined knit, scooped neck and faded logo for a piece you can sport in the office on Blue Fridays.
