Andrew Wiggins is announcing his presence to the NBA in some seriously high fashion. Just a few hours before go-time, images of Wiggins in his draft day outfit, featuring a really funky suit jacket, hit the Internet.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Wiggins turned to stylist Brandon Williams and bespoke tailor Waraire Boswell to help him assemble his outfit for the big day.
“I wanted to set him apart from the past and other drafts,” Boswell said. “Generally, on draft day, all of these guys will have these suits from a handful of suit clothiers or have their local tailors do that for them — we wanted him to look like he’s already been there, done that and he’s at the pinnacle. Whoever sees him is going to be like, ‘Oh wow, this guy dresses like this all the time.’”
“It’s superexclusive and we were told it was for when royals vacation or go to a country club. It’s a European bird’s-eye fabric. I guarantee no one will have anything even close to what he’s wearing.”
Don’t hate the player, hate the fashion game.
