OUTFIT OF THE DAY
#1,014 WESTBROOK GETS GRUNGY
By Sam Higgins, 7 March 2017
Russell Westbrook here, making a strong case for this season’s NBA style MVP.
On court, Russell Westbrook is heading for a record-breaking season, baffling defences and averaging a triple-double a game, but off court, the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard is a self-confessed ‘#fashionking’ – championing sartorial eccentricity on the daily. And when he’s not dressing satirically in an official photographer bib, or really committing to a look, Westbrook is game for outfits of grungy goodness. Following his copping of our very own Reclaimed Vintage gear, here, heading in to face the Portland Trail Blazers last week, the baller introduced a contemporary approach to layering with his 90s steez.
A white hoodie and ripped jeans may already be a classic combo, but the baggier fit of his sweat and the extreme rips and zipped cuffs of his bottoms provide a more unique edge to his kit. Mixing up the cuts, Westbrook then throws a short-sleeved check duster jacket over the top for a relaxed, layered look. Finally, a pair of brown high-tops poke out from under his jeans, matching hues with his jacket and completing a pre-game grungy getup.
