First of all don’t be that guy! There is no point in showing up to your friend’s house to watch the big game, and you are wearing the tightest jersey around.

You can really only get away with wearing this sport’s jersey in the summer. The sleeveless attire is great to wear with shorts and a track pants. Jeans are not that great to wear with a basketball jersey, as these type of jerseys tend to be long and can look really weird with denim.
Football (Soccer) Jerseys
Ok so with this one, it is actually optimal to pair these with denim jeans. This jersey is usually more fitted, which can come in both short sleeve and long sleeve. We recommend to wear the short sleeve version, because the long sleeve tends to rue too fitted on the arms. Unless that’s the look you are going for.
American Football Jerseys

The hockey jersey is by far the most difficult jersey to dress with. One one hand the numbers on the shoulder area make the shoulders a bit too bulky.

Apart from the huge logo, baseball jerseys really can open up your summer fashion. The main thing to remember is that you should never wear a hoodie under it. This look is cannot be paired with any suitable pants. Instead for a stylish look, leave the jersey unbuttoned and wear a plain type of t-shirt under.
This type of jersey is actually the best for denim jeans. Usually consisting of a white collar, the retro jerseys resemble a polo shirt. You can also dress in a preppy look if you please, as retro rugby jerseys are well known for that look.
Generally the only footwear that should be worn with any type of jersey should be running shoes. There is an exception with sandals, especially if you are wearing shorts with your jersey. Anything else will not look good at all and hinder your sport look. Leaving others to wonder if you wore the jersey to really support your team of did you do it to fit in.
