game-day wear

September 17, 2012

While tailgating at a South Carolina game in 2003, Mel Pennington and Tygh Bailes tossed around a business idea that combined football and fashion.

Two years later, the friends started Florida-based Pennington and Bailes, which makes attention-getting collegiate sportswear for men and women.

The company’s Stadium Pants were an instant hit with frat guys and preppy fans of all ages. They still are.

In addition to the dress-style pants ($135), the company offers embroidered, cotton-twill Stadium Shorts ($105). Big and skinny guys like the comfy fit of the traditional-cut shorts. The checked coaches shirts ($85 & pictured below) can be dressed up or down.

Women like the skirts ($105 , below) and polo dresses ($95, above). There is also a children’s collection.

Team apparel is available for about 50 colleges.

Over the last five years, the best-selling schools have included, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee and UGA.
