Would pick Tom Ford over TB all day though, BBBf wasn’t as short as TB either, BBBF is actually wearable for my height no shorter than B.B. Milano probably (or just a bit shorter)

They also wore boots to compensate for the short hem on the pants. Not a great look.

Let’s face it: virtually everyone on SF, particularly on CM, will not like TB.
That's true, but their being here isn't some kind of negation of their opinion. I mean, you're on here, right?

Almost all that TB stuff looks awful. It either makes you look like a fashion victim or it's just ... bad.

There's a ton of capital-f fashion stuff that's just awful and I feel like, often, everyone plays around and acts like it's not awful when it is. I say that as someone who absolutely loves fashion. There are ways to appreciate what Demna is doing for example, so it's not just some "uggghh who would wear that stuff" attitude. But you can also appreciate the point while saying it looks bad/ stupid.

Same with a ton of designers.

I love that they got dressed up in TB, just cause it was a fun and unexpected place to see fashion, but ... I mean, they looked terrible.
How is it an unexpected place to see fashion. Professional athlestes, especially, NBA players, treat the walk to the arena as their runway. They are typically wearing all the hype designers labels. Most do it well.

It was unexpected because I've never seen a whole team get kitted out like that, in the same uniform, wearing the same designer. It's usually the same people.

And they almost always look awful in it. It always looks like someone else dressed them.

Well Lebron dressed them in that it was his plan. I thought they pulled it off well. But I like the TB look even if it is not for me.

Would you have liked it better if they dressed in matching IM tunics and Ragosta jackets?

Man, what is your hang up with those two items? We get it, you don't like them. But if you're going to harp about them incessantly, at least be witty or funny about it.

What the hell are you talking about? You are having a bit of an overreaction to an off the cuff comment I made. Relax bro. It’s just clothes. You’ll live.
