The Black Hole of Oakland. The 12th Man of Seattle. The Niner Gang of San Francisco. When the fans and players in a city bond, something spectacular happens. The heartbeats syncopate. This year, upstate New York is in the grips of the Bills Mafia, the Buffalo Bills super-fan club. In an open letter addressed to their die-hard fans, offensive tackle Dion Dawkins opened up about how much the bond the fans and players share means to him. The Family has a new Don.
Dion, a captain this season, has been leading the charge from the front for the Bills. Dion has embraced his leadership role. The big man is built for the limelight. Even when he’s away from the gridiron, Dion shines. As if his 6’5” frame wasn’t enough, Dion has a style we can’t help but admire.
Dion pairs the 40’s and Shorties New Jack vest and trousers with YSL sneakers // Credit to wardrobe stylist/artist Kierra Bailey for this fly style. Check out more of her work on IG @kierraxbailey. Kierra & Dion pick the Asos long sleeve to go under the Michael Kors fleece jacket with Embellish NYC jeans and Lanvin low-top sneakers. For the early days of winter and light snow dustings, Dion busts out this tastefully practical fit, put together by his wardrobe consigliere Kierra.
The puffer jacket and hoodie look is always a winner in winter. Dion’s distressed Embellish NYC jeans may not be ideal as temperatures on the East Coast drop. Props to Dion on the iridescent Louboutin Junior Spike Flats. The changing colors of the kicks complement the rest of the fit brilliantly. // Dion opts for the HUF Worldwide Playboy varsity jacket over the checkered Obey sweatshirt. The black trousers and Lanvin sneakers finish off the fresh, essential look.
The long summer afternoons are the perfect backdrop for the short sleeve, short pants fit. Rocking a set from Obey Clothing, Dion pairs them with kicks by American designer Fabrice Tardieu and a shoulder bag from LA based design company Strapped. // Red highlights from the Shnowgear hoodie to the lining of the classic Nike Air Jordan 4’s to the rose-patches on the Gucci Tiger jean jacket pop out from this otherwise classic denim outfit.
