NBA Style: Dwyane Wade edition

Dwyane Wade turned heads last week with his playoff outfit, but not in a good way. The Miami Heat guard showed up at Game 3 of the Heat versus Brooklyn Nets series wearing a white, short-sleeve button-down shirt and overalls with rolled pant legs. The bib on the overalls was hooked and hanging below his shirt, super casual. 

Wade's outfit was getting a lot of hate on Twitter but at least one colleague was into the look.

"Whoever thought of this fit, I need in!!!! Swaggg," tweeted Detroit Piston's guard Brandon Jennings.

According to the Daily Beast, style is a relatively new interest for NBA players. In 2005, the NBA commissioner made business casual dress mandatory during league activities. The dress code included a ban on exposed chains, pendants, sleeveless shirts and sunglasses while indoors. Since then, many players have hired stylists and LeBron James even made the cover of Vogue in 2008.

If overalls aren't your style and you're looking for something swaggier, check out Jimmy Jazz for the latest kicks and apparel. The New Arrivals page is popping with summer fashion including tanks and shades.

Would you wear overalls if they became a popular style among NBA players?
