Which Professional Athlete Won Men’s Fashion Week?

It’s a marathon, not a sprint.

July 17, 2015

It's almost surprising how long it's taken professional athletes to get invested in the high fashion world, given the lack of sartorial options available to the Big & Tall (and we've seen what can happen when they try to go custom). But if the past week proved anything, it's that a handful of athletes are really, really here for New York Men's Fashion Week. Below, a look at the select few ballers who brought out their inner #fashion, for better or for worse.

He was basically in the Thom Browne show, posing in a white button-down
For the Public School show, he changed into something a lil' more comfortable

Eventually, Wade changed into a pair of houndstooth shorts
And hung out with a fan and Swaggy P
To be honest, Nick Young kind of killed it
