NEW YORK (AP) - Joe Flacco is soaking up all the opportunities that come with being a Super Bowl champ, including nabbing a front row seat at New York Fashion Week.
The Baltimore Ravens quarterback and his wife, Dana Grady, had prime real-estate for Tommy Hilfiger's ever-preppy menswear collection Friday at the Park Avenue Armory.
``It was pretty cool. It was a lot quicker than I thought it would have been,'' said Flacco after watching his first fashion show.
As a brutal Nor'easter raged outside, the Hilfiger men on the runway bundled up in hefty coats with plush fur collars, cozy argyle sweaters and patterned turtlenecks.
If there's one takeaway from the fall collection: Houndstooth is a man's best friend.
It came down the runway in subtle waves - just peeking out from the lining of a coat or scarf - and in bold explosions, including a head-to-toe ensemble of houndstooth trousers and trench. Hilfiger also mixed and matched his pattern du jour with plaids and argyle.
Flacco, who led the Ravens in a 34-31 victory against the San Francisco 49ers at the Super Bowl in New Orleans, gave a nod of approval as a model passed by in a fitted navy blazer, layered under a dark, shearling car coat.
So what would his teammates say about his fashion week cameo?
``You know they'd probably pick on me a little bit, but it was a lot of fun,'' said Flacco.
