NBA Players Who Are Nailing This Winter’s Trends


When the really cold weather hits and the streets turn to a sea of black and grey, it’s easy to assume that winter’s the season style forgot. If you peel back those heavy layers, however, you’ll find that menswear hasn’t gone into hibernation mode. Here are the top trends we’ve seen this winter so far, and the NBA players that can show you a thing or two about pulling them off.


Sheepskin collars like the one LeBron James is wearing have made some noise alongside fur, pilled sweaters and heavy knits as tactile textures make a reappearance. Shearling is an especial favourite, since it’s a detail most often found on the bombers and leather jackets that define the early months of the season. It doesn’t hurt that James is rocking green, many dark shades of which are cropping up everywhere these days.


Unstructured coats
Outerwear doesn’t change often, but when it does, change comes writ large. Large, voluminous overcoats and jackets that play with proportions are hitting it big right now. As Andre Iguodala shows, extra material equals a masculine silhouette that’s great for layering.


Roll neck sweaters
This season’s roll neck sweaters are to turtlenecks what Hemingway was to Pee Wee Herman—that is to say, there’s no confusing the former’s brawny silhouette for its now-extinct cousin. Serge Ibaka’s here fits the bill for its exceptionally chunky construction and neck-warming capabilities.


Black on black
Fall will always have its camouflage, and winter its quintessential monochrome uniform. Landry Fields here pulls the classic black on black look off right by incorporating several textures into his outfit, including leather, cotton and denim.


Statement outerwear
As Will Barton shows, this winter’s best statement pieces take advantage of all that real estate a layer of outerwear has to offer—in his case, a macro floral print. Support a similar style with less raucous details such as all-white kicks for just the right balance.


Brown is the new black
From outerwear to suiting, men are reaching for a warmer colour to replace winter’s dreary perennial shades of black. Here, Tristan Thompson kills two trends with one jacket by donning an unstructured overcoat in a vibrant brown that turns up the heat.


Jogger pants
The jogger pants trend continues from fall into this winter, imparting us with equal parts style, comfort and warmth. Greivis Vasquez keeps his slimmed down and pairs them with leather, adding a textural counterpoint to the sportier sweats.


Statement suiting

Suits and jackets sporting checks, stripes and other patterns have made their way back into our sartorial lexicon. Just bear in mind that what separates the modern take on statement suiting and the preferred styles of 50s mafiosos is an exceptionally well-tailored fit and softer shoulders—really, just take a look at what Matt Barnes here is wearing.
