Gear Up for the World Cup

Gooooaaaallll! The 2014 FIFA World Cup is less than two weeks away, and we couldn’t be more excited to get rowdy while cheering on team USA. As if we were’t pumped enough, we accompanied Degree Men to the USA vs. Turkey match on Sunday, and our team was victorious. Not only did we bond with fellow supporters, the sea of red, white and blue was inspiring.

Even if you’re not a big futball fan, there are plenty of reasons to get in the spirit for the world’s greatest sporting event. For one, it’s an excuse to start throwing back some beers in the early afternoon, especially if you have summer Fridays. But besides the day drinking buzz, we’re excited to rock World Cup gear all month long. And we’re not just talking official jerseys. Some of our favorite brands have been putting out special edition pieces just to celebrate the games. Check out our picks right here and rep your team in style.

GOLA
UK brand GOLA designed three sneakers to celebrate the games. Take your pick of USA, England or Brazil, and rock them all summer long. $47.64, ASOS

MCM
We love MCM’s slightly over-the-top accessories for a lot of reasons, and their World Cup collection fits right in with their aesthetic. Small leather goods, like this passport case, are equal parts playful and handsome. Visit MCM for details

Kangol
A subtle way to show your pride, wear these Kangol socks with rolled up denim. If you really want to get in the spirit, rock them with shorts on game day. $5.99, Target

Nike
A classic way to gear up, this Nike USA World Cup home jersey isn’t too over the top if you’re going straight from work to watch the game. $90, Macy’s

Y-3
Show off your good sportsmanship with this tongue-in-cheek tee, designed with a graphic of Y-3 “shaking hands.” $140, Barneys
