On road trips I’ll go to the mall on my own or sometimes with our security guy, [Mike] Flash. I like Zara, Barneys, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges from the U.K. Nordstrom, sometimes. I do a lot of bargain shopping at outlets, too, high end and low end. ESPN: What trends are you into now? RW: I like cutoff jean jackets, jean shorts, too. I liked metallic leather for a while but I’m over it now. Now I’m into cotton pants for some reason. Cotton, light gray, but they look dressy, with little pockets and zippers. I’m getting some made. Cover love the color scheme. I actually saw this Burberry Jacket in GQ magazine, and started calling it the ‘Iron Man Jacket’ Green & leopard-print make a superb combination.
