Before losing to the Los Angeles Clippers last night, all in the world was right for LeBron James. As a new season kicked off, the King walked into Staples Center wearing a beautiful Gucci shirt. An incredible shirt—such gorgeous silk! On the front is a starry-night pattern where magical creatures—centaurs, lions with horns of a ram, and a beast that is half yak half on fire—play. It would not be a surprise to learn the pattern was ripped off the wallpaper of a nursery of a little French boy whose first words are très chic. (Gucci says the pattern is is actually "inspired by vintage Persian rugs from the early 1900s.")
The shirt is the crux of the outfit but James, a well-rounded player if there ever was one, didn't skimp on the rest of his look. His bag comes with Off-White's signature straps and his shoes are the hotly anticipated Cactus Plant Flea Market Air Force 1s. Of course, the Lakers took an L on opening night. But that shirt...that is one Big Fit of the Day-worthy shirt.
