It’s the big game night. The Toronto Argos have been beating the Ottawa Red Blacks. Another goal, will the Red Blacks score in the last minute. It seems Ottawa has taken the match on its side. Another goal. Who will it be? Reds? Blacks? Flannels? Boots? No Kidding, game night calls for some serious fashion cures. Your outfit should at least scream out support for your favorite team. Keeping in line with how the Argos chopped the Red Blacks up last time, my Freshjive Flannel Shirt makes for a grungy men’s clothing combination with the Polo Ralph Lauren Barn Jacket. It’s bold and hard-core, just like the hard-earned victory.

For the bottom I have opted for a relaxed pair of denims by United Stock Dry Goods, whose darker hue brings in the right amount of warmth needed for a fall-dressing. With so much fire around, (the victory coupled with chopping woods) I couldn’t decide on one footwear to complete the look. Here are two – cool and heavy – options to make way for good fashion into the playoffs. Go all black and dark with the Red Wing Boots or cool it off in a Converse All Star’s pair. The game is on.
