Here Are 16 Governors Ball Pics That Prove Bros Love Old-School Basketball Jerseys

RANDALL’S ISLAND, New York — Dressing for an outdoor music festival like Governors Ball is an art, not a science. Above all else, concertgoers have to factor in style and comfort. Finding the balance between the two is the key.

For the 2014 festivities, which went down over the weekend at Randall’s Island in New York City, heat was a major player. And as the scorching sun pierced through the sky, we couldn’t help but notice all the dudes rocking basketball jerseys. And why not? They’re sleeveless, breathable, and let you rep a player or team of your choosing.
