Found November 05, 2013 on A Glam Slam:
Following an impressive win over the New Orleans Saints this weekend, the New York Jets traded their gridiron garb for designer suits, all in the name of charity. Players helped to raise money for the New York Jets Foundation and local food banks, with a live auction and a fashion show presented by Saks Fifth Avenue and Mastercard. The 2013 “Taste of the NFL” event was hosted by Jets center, Nick Mangold, and defensive lineman, Muhammad Wilkerson. The Saks Fifth Avenue men’s fashion presentation featured Mangold, Nick Folk, Geno Smith, Bilal Powell, Willie Colon, Stephen Hill, Calvin Pace, Austin Howard and Nick Bellore, among other players. The teammates modeled a range of suiting styles from the retailer’s private menswear collection.

Jets Should Be Taken Seriously as Playoff Contenders, as Rex Ryan Has Them Winning With Old School Style

Back in the middle of August, the Jets looked like they were going to be the laughing stock of the NFL this season.

Their best defensive player, Darrelle Revis, was gone. Their best offensive...
