Andrew Wiggins Rocks Floral Suit for NBA Draft, Is Above Our Fashion Laws

Dan CarsonTrending Lead WriterJune 26, 2014

Being both Canadian and a potential No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, Andrew Wiggins possesses the fashion world equivalent of a “license to kill.”

He can wear suits and sneakers. His denim privileges are endless. Our rules do not apply. 

With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that the former Kansas Jayhawks star is going for the jugular at tonight’s draft, donning a black and white floral pattern suit with a bow tie. He is not wearing socks. This is not a drill.

 For Wiggins, the loud gear isn’t a big deal. He was born in a country where high fashion is anything that stops an elk hoof. In fact, he seemed quite bored this afternoon. 

Naturally, Wiggins’ suit is already causing division in the ranks among sports pundits and fans. Some appreciate the look while others can smell the moth balls through their monitors.

The important thing to remember in all of this is that our opinions do not carry weight in this matter. Wiggins, as previously stated, is operating under the double fashion immunity that comes with being a lottery pick with Canadian citizenry. 

Just remember this day was the beginning of a new age in NBA fashion. Dwyane Wade is already hearing footsteps.
