What goes around comes around. That statement is definitely true in fashion. Trends from back in the day always reappear years later in some form or another. A good example of this would be the 'hipster' style - black rimmed glasses, facial hair, tight jeans, long hair, bikes, etc. We recently came across some photos of past NBA players that, shall we say, embody this hipster trend. From both a sports and a fashion standpoint, these photos were an amazing find. They were so amazing, we had to share them with you. As you all know, the hipster style is very popular right now, so these guys may have been the initial trendsetters and not have even realized it. Check out the photos below. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Did you grow up admiring a certain athlete for their fashion style? If so, who was it? Who do you remember had great personal style back in the day?
Phil Jackson: overalls, bike, beard.
Kurt Rambis: black rimmed glasses.
Michael Jordan: tight jeans and polo, boom box. This photo is just priceless.
Bill Walton: Fabulous.
Pat Riley: oh yes, facial hair.
