49ers’ Kyle Juszczyk arrives at Super Bowl in custom jacket designed by wife Kristin


San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk arrived at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday in style, sporting a custom Super Bowl jacket designed by his wife Kristin.

Juszczyk’s letterman jacket featured the names and numbers of several of his teammates, including quarterback Brock Purdy, tight end George Kittle and wide receiver Deebo Samuel. The red jacket also had black leather sleeves and the logos of the NFL and Super Bowl LVIII.

All of the players whose numbers appeared on the jacket signed it after Juszczyk got to the locker room.

Juszczyk’s jacket is the latest high-profile garment to be worn from his wife’s designs after Taylor Swift sported a Travis Kelce-themed puffer coat made by Kristin at the Kansas City Chiefs’ wild-card game against the Miami Dolphins.

Kristin began designing game-day attire when she and Kyle first started dating 10 years ago. She began cutting up Kyle’s No. 44 jerseys and fashioning them into something more stylish. Her designs range from corset tops to miniskirts to coats, blending the red zone and the red carpet.

Kristin’s designs got a boost in November when she sent a pair of white, Patrick Mahomes-themed pants to Brittany Mahomes, the wife of the Chiefs quarterback. That’s who passed along the coat that Swift wore last month.

Earlier this season, Kristin approached Samuel about wearing one of her designs. Her initial idea was to make Samuel a jacket with his number on it, which he declined.

“I said, ‘If you make me a (Brock) Purdy one, I’ll wear that,’” Samuel told The Athletic. So she did, fashioning a vest that not only included Purdy’s No. 13 but also had “MVP” emblazoned in several spots.

In December, gymnast Simone Biles wore a green vest that Kristin refashioned from the jersey of Biles’ husband, Green Bay Packers safety Jonathan Owens.
