PLAYERS: Dwyane Wade
TEAMS: Miami Heat
And here I was thinking that Wade picked out his clothes with his eyes closed… This year athletes have seemed to press the envelope more than ever when it comes to their fashion choices, and that proved no truer than when Dwyane Wade wore a double-breasted, polka dot, capri pants suit to game four of the Eastern Conference semifinals. His stylist, Calyann Barnett called into the Mike & Mike show this morning to discuss how she and D. Wade select his ensembles and even revealed that all of his “stylish” threads have been pre-planned all the way through the finals. Wade “loves to have fun, loves to try new things. Before the playoffs even started we went through all of his looks, straight through the finals,” said Barnett. “And every look is set already…and I already know what he will wear for the next game and the Finals.” A little presumptuous? Maybe, but clearly Wade’s a planner. She also said that fashion is one of Wade’s passions, and when he’s off the court he likes to have fun with it. If you’re a fan of the capri suit, then you’d have to go to Europe where it’s more popular, but I have seen that wearing a suit with dress shoes and no socks has become mildly popular among men here in the states. I personally am not a fan of either trend and can’t wait until they go right out of style. In the mean time these outrageous outfits provide good material for all of the twitter and instagram comedians, so Strange’ D Wade…Strange’ GIFSoup
