Burgundy and gold are the go-to game day colors of the Washington Redskins and their passionate fanbase, eliminating any questions of what to wear. However, there are events that provide the opportunity for players to express their individuality, such as the team's annual Welcome Home Luncheon.
Some opt for fancy suits tailored with the perfect fit. Vernon Davis is widely known for this, considered one of the sharpest dressers on the squad, donning a navy jacket and khaki pants for him. Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice went with the classy suit look as well, AD in a traditional dark one, Guice adding a little extra flare in a light color fabric. Both on point.
This unit will be relied upon a lot this season, Running backs dressed sharp at the Luncheon. Look out for AD, Guice, & CT! #httr #redskins @DhaSickest @AdrianPeterson @ChrisThompson_4 pic.twitter.com/7qJimtdbFG— Julie Donaldson (@JDonaldsonNBCS) August 28, 2019
Josh Norman always adds a little flavor to whatever he has on, this time a navy tie and sweater pullover with a snazzy hat. Quinton Dunbar joined him with that headgear but went with a more Miami flavored shirt and pants look. This Florida girl (and I’m sure Don Johnson) would approve.
Paul Richardson kept it simple, black on black but with a diamond necklace you could see from the moon.
The special teams' guys were all that! Tress Way stood out per usual. He wore a light blue blazer and strolled in as if he were the president while Dustin Hopkins and Nick Sundberg wore dark sunglasses and pretended to be secret service clearing the way for the punter with the golden leg.
The QB’s were simple. Case Keenum in a navy blazer, Dwayne Haskins Jr. in a burgundy one, neither wearing a tie. Colt McCoy on the other hand did, but he entered far behind the other two. (Which was rather interesting.)
Morgan Moses had a clean light gray plaid jacket with fancy gray suede shoes, he made a point to say Erik Flowers was rocking that Florida attire with a colorful flowered shirt. (I was wearing hot pink pants and defended Flowers decision to add color, it’s what we wear in Florida).
But perhaps the most intriguingly dressed, if only for his boots, was defensive coordinator, Greg Manusky. They were made of snakeskin, rattlesnake to be exact. He said he had a choice to wear one of his 5 pairs made of Eel, Ostrich, Shark, and Python. It’s worth noting he did not catch and make his collection himself.
Best boots goes to..... DC, Greg Manusky. Says he has Ostrich, Python, Eel, Whale, and Rattle Snake. (Worth noting he did not catch and make himself). #httr #redskins #boots #OOTD pic.twitter.com/ozpEEQSa8C— Julie Donaldson (@JDonaldsonNBCS) August 28, 2019
And of note in closing, I had the opportunity to talk to Jon Bostic, but he was wearing a Redskins polo. His reason I had to accept, his belongings still have not arrived. They are in a truck working their way up from Tennessee. The life of a journeyman looking for a permanent home and a good suit for game day.
Oh, and I suppose I’d be amiss if I didn’t tell you diehard Redskins fan Matthew McConaughey wore a burgundy suit, of which he said he has a few, specifically for the Redskins. HTTR.
