Philadelphia Eagles players hit the runway this week in Robbini custom-made suits to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

The fourth annual Fashion Touchdown event raised $300,000 to help the Philadelphia region’s leading one-to-one youth mentoring organization cover costs to keep the program running.

Not only did seven Philadelphia Eagles — and their wives — strut down the runway at the sparkling black-tie affair, several posh prizes were auctioned off, including a private in-home dining experience courtesy of local restaurateur Nick Elmi for a whopping $30,000. The chance to tour Nicole Miller‘s New York studio, take in a designer runway show, and lunch with Miller sold at auction for $20,000.

But we all waited with cocktails in hand and bated breath to see the Eagles take the runway. You could feel the electricity as members of the 8-and-1 Birds took a much-needed  runway break before hitting the field Sunday night for their home game against the Dallas Cowboys. Fiyah!

All  the suits and shirts were supplied by Philly custom clothier Rob Fung of Robbini Bespoke. Bow ties and pocket squares came from Malcolm Jenkins’ accessory line Rock Avenue Bowties. And the shoes were provided by ToBox in Center City.
