Must-have fan gear for this football season

Posted 12:17pm on Thursday, Sep. 05, 2013

For some of us, football season isn’t complete without a little gear and garb action. We visited the downtown Fort Worth branch of the Dallas Cowboys pro shop and went online to NFLshop.com and shop.gofrogs.com, and came up with our must-have items for this season.

Dallas Cowboys

Navy Blue Plaid Cuffed Rain Boots ($39.95). Sure, it seems like a fantasy now, but it does rain in North Texas — sometimes even at football games. So check out these babies — rubber soles with rib-knit cuffs, in blue and gray with the ’Boys logo on the rib-knit cuffs. Find them at www.nflshop.com

Dallas Cowboys Discoverer Hoodie ($51.99). Whether you’re headed to a watch party or sitting in the stands at AT&T Stadium, this is one cozy hoodie to snuggle up in. We dig the retro vibe and distressed twill logo. Bonus: The hood has a thermal lining. www.nflshop.com

New Era Dallas Cowboys Ladies Team and Tweed 9FORTY hat ($21.95). We know. Everybody’s closet is littered with ball caps. But with fall looming ( please tell us it’s looming), we find this tweed cap irresistible. www.nflshop.com

Dallas Cowboys pet cheerleader dress ($19.95). Yeah, so a lot of us want to make our fan dogs Instagram-ready, by dressing them up and briefly stealing their dignity. But oh, how flippin’ precious they are. www.nflshop.com

TCU Horned Frogs

Gameday personalized name and number Slub T-shirt ($69.95). Expensive for a T-shirt, yes. But this is a pretty awesome jersey (check out that angry-looking Frog and those cool arm stripes), and you can get your name on it, and your favorite player’s number (NCAA regulations prevent the shop from customizing a shirt with the name of a current or former player). That slub fabric will fray as you wear it, giving it that lived-in look. shop.gofrogs.com

Purple unisex flip-flops ($19.95). If the Cowboys rain boots above prepare you for stormy weather, these kicks will remind you that we’re still in Texas, which means it’ll still be flip-flop weather into November. (They’ve also got more “dressy” leather options in black and brown for $44.95.) shop.gofrogs.com

Hooded knit scarf ($24.95). Eventually, that chill will hit the Fort Worth air. And when that happens, why bother with searching for your matching scarf and cap when this ingenious little item fuses them all into one soft, fuzzy thing of purple beauty? The knit scarf even has two slip pockets. shopgofrogs.com

Eye black strips ($3.95). A pair of stick-on TCU-colored strips (they come in both pink and purple) will keep the sun out of your eyes and intimidate to the opposition. Grrr. shopgofrogs.com

Products can be found online at shopgofrogs.com , nflshop.com , at Dallas Cowboys Pro Shops around the Metroplex and places where collegiate gear is sold, such as the TCU Barnes and Noble .
