As you’re probably well aware, Nike now has the NFL uniform contract, producing all the on-field gear for America’s most popular sport. Fitting then, and probably more important for those of us who don’t wear football jerseys and pants on the regular, that Nike is also making all the sideline gear for the league — the stuff we’ll see on coaches, sideline personnel, injured players and the like. In that vein, here’s a first look at the Nike NFL Elite 51 Sideline Collection, a special Nike Sportswear-style line focusing on classy, occasionally vintage-inspired pieces. Hit the jump for looks at a few early items, and stay tuned for plenty more.
Overall, the Nike Elite 51 Sideline Collection will include the following: Nike Padded Reversible Jacket, Nike 650 Destroyer Jacket, Nike Storm Fit Shell Jacket, Nike Pro Combat Hypercool Speed Top Short Sleeve, Nike Pro Combat Hypercool Speed Top Sleeveless, Nike Legend Conference Long Sleeve T-Shirt, the Nike Empower Jacket and Pant, Nike Knit Coaches Jacket, Nike KO Hoody, Nike Legend Authentic Font Tee, the Nike N98 Jacket and the Nike Pro Combat Hyperwarm Long Sleeve Training Top.
