LeBron James, NBA player, 32
Basketball player LeBron James is racking up points for his fine style.
THE HEAD Well let’s extend some congratulations on that finely tuned facial hair. This is a guy with a strong jawline but that well-groomed stubble further highlights that.
THE OUTFIT This is the magic of LeBron’s style. With the exception of the odd bold yet understated in colour item, his pieces on their own are quite simple. Here, a white tee and navy chinos, cuffed up to lower calf. Nothing out of the ordinary, yet the attention to detail is obvious. The tee, fitted perfectly to his shoulder size with seam detailing, and the pants the same, which are given life by the high cuff.
THE ACCESSORIES This is where LeBron begins to make magic off the court. The man loves his accessories and is a gun at choosing them. Note here the hat but also the perfect matching of the leather belt – and choosing them in this warm grey tone helps to give contrast to the cool white and blue of the clothing. And then there’s the startling collection of man-jewellery. The beaded necklace for starters, and the assortment of wrist pieces, don’t look over-the-top because they appear to have been collected over a period of time, rather than simply artfully placed. Topped off with a fierce pair of dark sunglasses, the star look is almost complete.
THE SHOES Cool grey socks, leading right up to the pant line and then note the third repetition of tone from the hat and belt and you’re seeing why the devil is in the detail for this baller.
FURTHER STYLE HIGHLIGHTS This bold striped shirt left open over grey marle is highly considered yet still appears casual and elevates the look of a tee with blue jeans to a whole other level. The boots and peak cap take it up another few notches. Don’t be afraid to mix your neutrals. These splotch-patterned jeans probably wouldn’t be everyone’s first choice but their subtle colouring, teamed with plain grey and white, and the addition of a similarly coloured plaited belt is style mastery for someone who wants to be flashy but never loud. LAST WORD A star both on and off court.
