Calling all procrastinators: There’s still time to snag Eagles gear and cheer on the Birds in style
Whatever Eagles merch you’re looking for, Philly shops and makers have you covered.
It’s been time to get your Eagles green on, and if you don’t have any gear yet, what are you waiting for?
Sports are integral to Philadelphia’s cultural identity and, by extension, play a colorful role in our city’s fashion.
Jerseys of favorite players and hats repping our local teams are practically part of our capsule wardrobe. It doesn’t matter if you operate a bus or work in a courtroom, owning apparel from Philly sports teams is practically the law of the land.
As the Eagles prepare to face the Kanas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII this Sunday, perhaps you’re looking to upgrade your old green fits or snag new accessories to commemorate the special occasion. Or, maybe you’ve simply procrastinated because you’re hopping on the bandwagon. We won’t judge. Whatever you seek, Philly shops and makers have you covered so you can cheer on the Birds in style:
