He might be the GOAT; he might be the OG Space Jam star, but he’s definitely a fashion icon! Everyone and their cousin wanted to be like Mike at some point in their lives. Even to this day, nobody can settle the GOAT debate, and MJ is still up there. However, another side of Jordan’s legacy is all the fashion moments he gave us. These Michael Jordan outfits, both ironically and unironically, are a topic of discussion among fans. So, what’s the fuss about all the Jordan fits? Let’s find out!
Michael Jordan Outfits – As Unique As His Style of Play!
The dude had his fashion moments, gotta give it to him, and he certainly showed up in pretty controversial fits. Now, for reference, wearing some of these items is pretty stylish today with 80s and 90s fashion making a comeback. Back then though, some of his outfits were fashion ‘faux-pas’, or simply a disaster. So let’s check out some Michael Jordan outfits for s**ts and giggles, or for serious inspo. You do you because fashion is subjective peeps! And well, when you’re Michael Jordan, you can wear whatever the heck you want.
Oversized Fits Go Hard
Michael Jordan is a basketball player, and that means that at 6’ 6”, he’s impressively tall. And well, oversized fits with this height might not be a very wise choice, but MJ made it work! From your average gray suit to the memorable leather jacket, he certainly over-oversized. And well, huge denim pants kinda became his signature fit. Mind you, these fits go hard today, more than they actually did in the 90s!
Tuck It In and Step Out
Discipline shows in the little details. And if we take a look at most of the Michael Jordan outfits, we can see the discipline in the shirt tucks! He seems to be a huge fan, and we can’t blame him. It’s safe, comfy, and functional, especially when you’re on the basketball court! But naturally, MJ being MJ, he incorporated the court shirt tucks into his wardrobe. And again, we totally get it, especially when it becomes a whole fashion statement.
PS: The Canadian tux will forever be a menace to humanity. Even Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake couldn’t make it “fetch”.
It’s Gotta Be the Accessories!
You know, you could style your Jordans and fit right, but the look would still be missing something. And in MJ’s case, it’s definitely either a hat or glasses! He certainly didn’t hold back at all when it comes to accessories. We’re not gonna mention the hoop earrings because these became an obvious accessory ages ago. But what we’re gonna talk about is the audacity he had when playing around with hats! From the beret to your regular cap, MJ has it all. And to top it all off, he rocked sunglasses that are still fire to this day like Ray-Bans and Oakleys.
