In the November Issue of W magazine I was surprised to see a fashion editorial that featured the Florida Gator and Florida State Seminole Football team! How surprising that this in-state rivalry is featured in a national fashion magazine? The Sunshine State Rivalry between Florida and Florida state comes to ahead on November 26th. Unfortunately, the editorial never actually directly mentions either team, but each team’s colors, and school spirit shine throughout the 6-page spread. The caption read:
Fashion and football have more in common than meets the Eye: Strategic rivalries, and of course serious body armor. Whose colors will you be sporting?
I’ll proudly be wearing my Gator orange and blue. Well, not exactly the blue Piazza Sempione belted wool and silk jacket and matching orange pants that’s featured in the spread, probably something a tab bit more casual. But, orange and blue nonetheless :-)
