For his fall 2015 show, Tommy Hilfiger turned the Park Avenue Armory into an actual football stadium, opening up the field (oh I am just getting started) for sports puns. 

Hilfiger's All Star team of models hit the "runway" in a lot of old school collegiate looks, letterman jackets and preppy plaids included. Knit and leather tops alike featured football-inspired lace-up side details at the sleeves.  Hilfiger went long for the accessories, kitting out the models with pigskin-inspired leather wedges, which turned out surprisingly cute if not a touch too on-the-nose. 

And though a few too-literal looks could have been left on the sidelines — Liu Wen and Jourdan Dunn's jersey dresses and Gigi Hadid's leather poncho to name a couple — fans of the preppy brand will flip for the cheerleader-inspired dresses shown at the end of the show.

So while Hilfiger got to fourth and one by the end, he was ultimately forced to punt, putting points on the board with a field goal but falling just short of a touchdown.
