Last week, we asked Highsnobiety readers to vote on who they thought was the NBA’s best dressed player off the court. James Harden ran out a worthy winner against Swaggy P, Iman Shumpert, and Russell Westbrook, to name just a few.
However, not everyone was happy with our choice of competitors. Washington Wizards small forward Kelly Oubre Jr. was a notable omission, and he later voiced his displeasure at the choices on Twitter. Well, admittedly, he has a point.
The former University of Kansas star regularly shows up in some fire ’fits before Wizards games, so we decided to take a closer look at Oubre’s style. His obsession with fashion goes deeper than pre-game catwalks, having spent a few days interning in Esquire’s fashion editorial department last year.
Without further ado, here are our 10 favorite outfits Kelly Oubre Jr., aka “Wave Papi,” has rocked since getting drafted.
