Basketball Culture : The Chandler Fashion


With the increasing popularity of the NBA league over the last few years, players have gone beyond the usual business casual attire and put on serious thought on what they wear to arenas and post-game press conferences. Knowing that cameras are always on them and their fashion choices will induce some form of reaction amongst the various social media channels.

Dallas Mavericks’ forward Chandler Parsons is well regarded as one of league’s most fashionable players, and with such a unique style on his personal wardrobe – including brand partnerships with Stance Socks, Del Toro shoes, PSD underwear and Anta, you will definitely learn a thing or two on showing off a great fashion sense.

And also, some excerpt from Hypebeast for one of Chandler’s interview:

From a fashion standpoint, what can we expect to see from Chandler Parsons in the future? 

Just a little bit of everything. Obviously, I like to stick to what’s popular, but I’m also kind of bold and daring with what I wear. I’m a very confident dude, so I feel I can pull off anything. Obviously, there are going to be some haters and people talking about whatever you wear, but I’m comfortable with what I like, and it’s something I’m going to keep on doing.

Basketball Culture : #Cavshion is here


The hashtag “cavshion” is being used on Instagram and twitter to show off some of the players’ flawless fashion game. Iman Shumpert, Tristan Thompson, Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, and LeBron James can be seen posting some of their freshest gear on their personal accounts. Many of the outfits seen on the team Instagram page show how the guys arrive for a home or away game. Lets look at some of their posts.

Basketball Culture: Stylish NBA Players

Even they are talented on he court, basketball players fashion sense are often pretty much hit-and-miss. Often recruited by teams straight out of college (or even high-school), the sudden flow of big bucks into their bank account doesn’t always translate to a well-thought-out wardrobe. After all, a thousand pairs of rare Jordans aren’t worth a thing if you can’t pick a solid outfit to match.

But among those players still struggling to leave their teenage dress sense behind are a few doing it right. Setting an example for all those to follow, here is a list of some of the most stylish individuals in the NBA right now.

Serge Ibaka – Oklahoma City Thunder

Playing alongside the likes of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook would make it tough for anyone to stand out, but the Thunder’s towering big man has managed to carve out his own niche as one of the league’s best defensive players. What’s more, Ibaka has also earned a name for himself thanks to his impressive sense of style.



Nick Young – Los Angeles Lakers


NBA fans are usually too preoccupied with Nick Young’s headline-grabbing footwear to notice the rest of his style choices, which is a shame, because the Lakers’ scoring guard doesn’t disappoint in that department either.



Kevin Durant – Oklahoma City Thunder


Nicknamed ‘The Slim Reaper’- among other, equally cool things – Kevin Durant is another player who cuts a long and lanky figure. His seemingly never-ending wingspan, coupled with narrow shoulders, really makes him stick out, and no-doubt makes it pretty tricky when it comes to choosing an outfit. Nevertheless, Durant has shown himself to be a confident and savvy dresser, not letting his size hold him back in the style stakes.



Tyson Chandler – Phoenix Suns


Being a seven-footer can present a unique set of challenges for the fashion-conscious. At that size, all of a sudden measurements and fit take on an even greater importance. Yet, within that, Suns big man Tyson Chandler has found a way to maximize the style potential of his unique build (bulky torso and slight legs) through a more minimal, tonal look.



LeBron James – Cleveland Cavaliers


When you’ve got cameras on you for 90% of your daily life, it’s not surprising you feel the need to show off a little from time to time. Like many members of his draft class, James’s most consciously “stylish” wardrobe choices when involved loose-fitting blazers and baggy trousers. But that all seemed to change when he took his talents down to South Beach, where things took a turn for the more adventurous.



Dwyane Wade – Miami Heat


When considering style in the NBA, Dwyane Wade is certainly one of the first names to spring to mind. Much like his former teammate, LeBron James, Wade has seen his sense of style evolve from his days as a budding superstar into something that really reflects his character. What was once baggy and loose-fitting eventually made its way to being form-fitted and complimentary, with the help of celebrity stylist Calyann Barnett.



Russell Westbrook – Oklahoma City Thunder


Another client of über stylist Barnett, Russell Westbrook epitomizes the “science fair look” that has come to grip today’s NBA fashion scene. With every fresh press conference it seems that Westbrook reveals an interesting new set of frames and an outrageously busy shirt, most of which boast patterns so bold you’d think they were once used as curtains in a kindergarten. 

Westbrook is also one of the few NBA players so confident in their personal style that they feel comfortable experimenting far beyond the boundaries of their contemporaries. At the 2013 Teen Choice Awards he rocked a sleeveless tunic with a pair of drop-crotch sweatpants, cementing his reputation as a man absolutely unafraid to do something different.

Basketball Culture : 2016 NBA Draft – Suit your Style


Thursday brought us the NBA draft, which means it brought us another opportunity to check out the latest fashions favored by elite basketball prospects. Overall, it was a big night for each and everyone’s unique bow ties, tuxedo jackets and black lapels.

(Malik Beasley, taken 19th by the Nuggets, wore a tie-knot the size of Colorado on a magenta tinted suit.)

Ben Simmons, who went No. 1 overall to the 76ers, wore a conservative, well-tailored blue suit, accented with a gold tie. He furthered the corporate-shark look by barely pausing to acknowledge a cameraman who had fallen backwards while filming the LSU product arriving at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js For Kris Dunn ,No. 5 Timberwolves, it’s gotta be the shoes and the Whalers suit with a heap of confidence, the standout aspect of his ensemble. He can only hope his NBA game sparkles as much as those kicks, but he also showed that what’s inside counts, too.


//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Marquese Chriss (No. 8, Kings, traded to Suns) was resplendent in red crushed-velvet jacket, with a black-and-white bow tie. He certainly looked like he loves his look.


These are only some of the outfits that the 2016 NBA Draft players has shown, what do you think of their styles?

Basketball Culture : NBA Finals 2016 – Cleveland Cavaliers cheers

The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals, defeating the Golden State Warriors 93-89 in Sunday’s deciding Game 7. This is the first major sports championship that a Cleveland team has won since 1964.

(LeBron’s Statement game. Statement shirt. Statement hat)

In perhaps the biggest game of his career, LeBron James had the game of his life. He was named Finals MVP after scoring 27 points, 11 rebounds and dishing out 11 assists. The vote was unanimous, according to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.

“The people of Cleveland deserve this more than any other people I’ve ever seen or met or felt,” Cavs owner Dan Gilbert said. “No group deserves this more. No fan base deserves this more. I’m speechless and proud of everybody.

” When asked why this championship felt different, James kept his answer simple: “I’m home.” 

“This is what I came back for,” he said. “It doesn’t feel real.”

Basketball Culture :NBA 2016 Russel Westbrook Part – 2

Look its a part 2! Russel Westbrook has more outfits to offer and is yet again critiqued by designers.

Thunder vs. Spurs GAME 5

Designer: “This look has a similar 90’s retrospect, which is a reoccurring theme with Russell’s looks. Here he wears the classic 90’s denim wrangler, which is an incredible staple to anyone’s wardrobe, and brings in the summer and a fresh new mind as he pairs it with a comfortable, yet functional tank top with a subtly destructed jean. He’s cool, yet classic and refreshing.”

Thunder vs. Spurs GAME 6
Designer: “Our favorite look is obviously Russell wearing OVADIA & SONS to Game 6 of Thunder-Spurs. They advanced to the Western Conference finals that night. He’s wearing a black silk pullover tunic shirt and distressed denim from our Fall 2016 collection.” 

WCF: Thunder vs. Warriors GAME 2

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

 Designer: “This was a classic rock inspired look with a modern twist. Distressed denim has always been present in fashion. A few years ago, we started to see more distressed items surface such as T-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, hats, etc. You name it and someone has probably distressed it. Russ’ outfit was a modern Brando look. Instead of the plain white tee, Russ distressed his. He wore more fitted jeans and classic chelsea boots to complete the look.”

WCF: Thunder vs. Warriors GAME 3
A photo posted by Oklahoma City Thunder (@okcthunder) on May 22, 2016 at 3:12pm PDT

Designer: “The premise of this look is that figuratively what Russ represents is the modern man and in the sense, he can be absolutely progressive and confusing to the average guy, but then again he can pull off a look like this one that I believe that all different men can relate to and appreciate. 

“In this picture, he’s wearing a lumber-like flannel, which any guy can have in his closet paired with a hoody, a gray T-shirt and our Del Toro pink suede panel hat, which is the big exclamation point to the whole outfit.

Basketball Culture :NBA 2016 playoffs – Russel Westbrook

In the 2016 playoffs, Russell Westbrook has worn everything from flowing, billowy pants to a shirt with a giant hole in the front — his shirts, pants, hats and shoes designed by many different people. These are some of the outfits curated by designers.

Thunder vs. Mavericks GAME 5

Designer: “Russell is wearing an Honorable Mention Poncho. He’s going for a monochromatic cozy look, but tops the outfit off with a fedora to give the look a slight classy touch.”

Thunder vs. Spurs GAME 1

Designer: “Russ got a lot of negative feedback for this look, but I feel as though he was confident enough to pull this look off. The shades of denim in the oversized T-shirt, the rips in his distressed denim and the shade of footwear worked well together.” 

Designer2: “Russell wears our Mobay Construct Original. It’s a custom-made shirt with five types of raw denim, and a raw tattered collar and hem stitching. The shirt was inspired by Montego Bay’s landscape, and we were surprised to learn that Shaq and Charles Barkley were huge fans! :)”

Thunder vs. Spurs GAME 2

Designer: “Russ was going for a more grunge look, which I feel he pulled off pretty well. Joey, Dee Dee, Tommy and Johnny would’ve been proud of this outfit.”

Thunder vs. Spurs GAME 3

Designer: “This Patagonia look is homage to our generation, which is really a retrospect to the 90’s in how influential they were to our pop culture and style. I think he is going for the less is more kind of concept. He just wants to push the envelope and express his ability to move a lot of different ways. 

“I feel here, too, his style represents his body of play, which is very aggressive, yet very versatile. I think the look with the bandana and the cut-off T-shirt, especially the 90’s teal Patagonia represents his upbringing, which is a 90’s child, a free spirit and an open-minded individual.”
