NBA draft picks put on top-notch fashion display


Shai Gilgeous-Alexander stole the show at the 2018 NBA Draft, for better or worse.

Gilgeous-Alexander was in full bloom in an outfit that was arranged by a florist. A genial floral design covered the 11th overall pick of the draft from head to toe, including his undershirt. The loud outfit easily made the biggest fashion statement while also providing a pattern idea for a tablecloth.

Jaren Jackson’s attire gave off a smoother vibe; he adorned a bronze velvety JF J. Ferrar suit from the JCPenney collection. He looked like he could roll up to a blues club with swagger in tow, suitably so as he was taken by the Memphis Grizzlies with the No. 4 pick.

Mikal Bridges, who went at No. 10 to the Philadelphia 76ers and traded to the Phoenix Suns, also wore a JF J. Ferrar suit from JCPenney. His featured a custom liner that payed homage to Villanova, his alma mater.

Chandler Hutchison made his presence known with one of the plushest suits on the draftboard. His dark blue navy number featured deep hues with a glossy finish. Matching pants, plunging lapels and a modest bowtie completed the impressive ensemble. He went to the Bulls with the 22nd selection.

Deandre Ayton kicked off the draft with swanky attire as the Suns plucked him with the first pick. His cerulean attire showed that he was ready to take care of business.

Marvin Bagley III followed with the No. 2 overall pick by the Sacramento Kings and looked just as debonair. His suit and pants were all black and came complete with a custom suit liner that appeared to include an embossed image of his own yelling face. The acronym “J.R.E.A.M.” inside the liner stands for “Jesus rules everything around me.” The suit is also a part of the JF J. Ferrar collection.

Trae Young showed up to party with the suit shorts, which became a part of public discourse when LeBron James rocked them during the NBA Finals. He ended up on the Atlanta Hawks at No. 5 after a trade with the Dallas Mavericks.

Wendell Carter Jr., drafted with the No. 7 pick by the Chicago Bulls, said he was inspired by the movie Black Panther to wear a creative sash across his suit.

Michael Porter Jr. looked slick in all white with a stark black low cut tuxedo. He was drafted by the Denver Nuggets with the No. 14 overall pick. Lonnie Walker IV’s all-white attire came in the form of a double-breasted suite. He was drafted by the Spurs with the No. 18 pick.

With first impressions firmly made, the NBA draft picks will join their respective teams aiming to make as much of an impact on the court as they did on the red carpet.
