Founded in 1997 by Todd Snyder and Steve King, two small-town boys from Iowa, Tailgate takes the iconography of Americana — think state-school insignias and roadside watering holes — and translates it into stylish caps, sweatshirts, and tees. The brand’s designs are collegiate without being fratty; laidback without veering into slacker territory. In other words, they go great with a broken-in pair of jeans, not to mention a cold beer in the parking lot before the big game.
Call it the perfect alternative to the classic tee. A Henley gives you all the laid-back charm of your favorite crewneck, but with an extra helping of understated style. Pair it with a jacket for a dressed-down take on tailoring, and let it stand on its own once things really warm up. However you decide to wear your Henley, pick it up in our sale.
