The catwalk meets the hardwood Sliced denim + the big shirt — Westbrook and Durant win the night before even winning the game

Working the hallway hasn’t looked this good since high school. The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant arrived at Oracle Arena in style before Monday night’s Game 1 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Rip It Good

Durant seems to have perfected the denim-on-denim thing. And if the carefully slashed jeans and snug, button-down jacket haven’t convinced you that he’s having a full-blown ’80s moment, the Super Mario Brothers T-shirt should’ve. By the way, Durant’s fave denim brand, AMIRI Jeans, is real serious about its whispered distressed detailing, carefully placed rips and skinniness. The AMIRI MX1 jeans Durant wore Monday retail for $960.

Westbrook is the NBA’s biggest fashion risk-taker. His orange, oversized T-shirt is a bestseller for Vetements, the Parisian design collective that currently holds Kanye West and Rihanna in its thrall. Kylie Jenner’s recent Instagram showed off a similar version of Westbrook’s floppy-sleeved top.
