Tailgate Style: The Florida Gators

Unfortunately, I won’t be attending #OccupySaintSimons this year, but I thought I’d lend some help to the Gators fans making their way over to Jacksonville.  Behold the Red Clay Soul ‘Florida Gators’ version of Tailgate Style:

(Clockwise from top left)

1. New Hat: How many gas station Gators hats do you need?  Skip the Shell station and get this one – not only does it show Gator pride, but it is appropriate for Church (reference: www.tebowing.com)
2. New Shirt: Since this is the biggest game of the year, why not spiff it up a bit and add another (clean) sleeveless Gators shirt to the rotation?
3. New Jean Shorts: Required attire for any ‘true’ Gator fan.  Chomp Chomp.
4. New Tube Socks: No, they aren’t over the top.  These are 100% badass.  And don’t listen to what they tell you – you CAN wear these socks with your sandals.  Why would you want to cover these beauties up with all-white Sketchers?

Have fun down there, folks.

    Could not be any more correct, namely the sleeveless shirt and the jorts. Avoided two accidents today from out of town guests getting lost. War Eagle, but Go Dawgs!

    “You” the internet? Use the internet. Another reason why Gators are superior.

    Too bad you can’t buy mullets, otherwise this list would be complete

    You screwed it up. All real Gators wear visors, just like Savior Steve Spurrier. Geez… and you think this is a fashion blog. Get outa here!

    All aside, Go Gators!

    I suppose that when you can’t win very often, that what is left is to throw a little fashion smack out.

    As a gator fan I would be offended if it were from anyone else. I mean, you like to show off your visor collection… How could I take anything you say serious??? 😉

    Congrats to the Dawgs. I went to an SEC Championship game a while back featuring Florida and Alabama. The difference in dress between the fans was not only noticeable, it was as wide a chasm as the final score. It was a cold day, so jorts were not displayed in excess. Jeans and sweatshirts were the norm for the Florida fans. I guess it’s really hard to look good in orange and blue…..
