Travis Kelce planned his Super Bowl 2024 outfit BEFORE the Chiefs booked their place in Las Vegas – reveals his designer Mike Amiri: ‘He really is a bit of a showman’
Travis Kelce planned his outfit for the Super Bowl before the Kansas City Chiefs even booked their place in Las Vegas, according to the designer who outed him with his latest suit.
Mike Amiri tells Vogue: “A month ago, his team reached out and said ‘Travis really wants (Amiri) to make him something for the Super Bowl.’
The Chiefs only beat the Baltimore Ravens on Jan. 28 to secure their spot in Sunday’s game in Vegas, and Vogue says the outfit request was “a telling sign of Kelce’s confidence” that his team would make the ultimate game.
Kelce flew two members of Amiri’s team to Vegas this week for a formal fitting and, Vogue adds, the outfit was initially designed in cream but changed to black at Kelce’s request.
“We became friends many years ago,” Amiri said. ‘He was an early supporter of my work, and last year we actually hung out, ironically enough, in Vegas.

Mike Amiri, the designer behind Kelce’s outfit, described the Chiefs star as “a showman.”

‘I would think the biggest brands in the world wait for moments like this to attract someone. For us it was really organic, which made it extra special.
“Travis is really a bit of a showman, and we thought, this is the first Super Bowl in Las Vegas, so why not let it really represent that sense of entertainment that Vegas is known for and let him shine a little bit .”
The outfit the Chiefs star wore was a world away from his older brother Jason, who wore red and yellow to cheer his brother on in the game.
He sat down with his younger brother’s girlfriend Taylor Swift in the luxury suite at Allegiant Stadium. Travis reportedly paid around $1 million for a suite to house him and her family.
Earlier in the NFL season, Kelce, 34, said he takes at least three hours to choose the outfit he’ll end up wearing for each Chiefs game.
It really just goes down to the wire,’ he told the Wall Street Journal. ‘I enjoy the creative process of the panic of just throwing something together.
‘Of course not every look is for everyone. I’m not going to be offended if someone says I look like a clown when I have a fun hat on and a pair of crazy jeans. It is what it is, I’m going to have fun with it.
“For the most part, I do it to put a smile on someone’s face.”
