Ever since the Warriors unveiled those ghastly yellow alternate uniforms with sleeves, the reaction from everybody who put in their two cents has been decidedly negative (look no further than this guy.) But before Wednesday we had yet to actually get an assessment from an actual fashion expert. Like, say, from one of those folks on those fashion competition shows I’m wholly ignorant about.
Well, wait no longer. One of said people has issued a verdict on the Warriors’ sleeve jerseys: Tim Gunn, known as the snarply dressed judge on “Project Runway” and as one of the leading voices in fashion. So when Gunn has a mixed reaction about the uniforms, you know it means something. Via Marcus Thompson:
TIM GUNN: “If the shorts were four inches shorter, I would give the look a thumbs-up. I like the short sleeves. The color is fresh. But why aren’t their shoes uniform? Three guys and three different yellow shoes?”
The most important thing to take from that is he actually approves of the sleeves...
