Halloween Outfit Inspiration: Deflategate and Bill Simmons
Leading up to this weekend’s frightful festivities, we’re giving you guys five full days of Halloween-inspired Outfit Inspirations. Whether you’re in it for the boos (or the booze), get into the spirit with one of these #SGapproved costumes. And be sure to check out Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday’s looks, too.
Two gentlemen known for both their undeniable talent and slight propensity for a bit of controversy makes for game-winning costumes. Take on arguably the most outrageous sports related “-gate” in recent history with a Tom Brady costume or turn yourself into our favorite Sports Guy.
Below, get sporty in a deflategate or Bill Simmons costume:
Deodorant: Acqua di Parma, $40
Wear it well: ...and the hits just keep coming. This one is almost too easy, which is also why it’s so great. Wear your perfectly tailored courtroom suit with a Brady jersey underneath, then “allegedly” have someone “allegedly” deflate a football to carry with you all night. Since you’re already a costume champion, complete this look by casually destroying your cellphone. Do we have a deal? Deal. Oh, and added bonus if you happen to have a super model wife on your arm.
Watch: Nixon, $100
Wear it well: Brush up on your sports knowledge and line-up a few interviews. Use a Sharpie to write “ESPN” on your white t-shirt, then immediately scribble it out (with enthusiasm) to write “HBO” instead. Keep your button down open and run it in with sports themed accessories.
