Who he is
I’m not going to pretend I know a lot about sports, but what I do know is that Baron Davis is a point guard for the Los Angeles Clippers. How do I know that? Because we have similar names, duh.
Why he stands out
In a sea of tall dudes wearing five-button suits, he stands out with his own style, and he’s unapologetic about it… which I love and have always advocated.
“When I walk in the locker room, everybody on my team wants to see what I got on just to crack jokes: ‘You wear the weirdest shit ever, dude!’“
Simply stated, Baron Davis doesn’t conform to the crowd. He knows his style and what he likes.
When people are a part of something (a group of friends, a ball team, etc.), they can’t help but subconsciously attempt to fit in and belong. When it comes to a man’s personal style, there should be no pressure to look like the crowd, mostly because the crowd is usually terribly dressed. Case in point: Walk down any big city’s Financial District, and you’re bound to see a mass of men walking around in black pants and blue shirts. That’s just how it is.
“Keep it real”
Don’t be afraid to break away from the norm and do you. Wear what you like, haters be damned.
Thoughts? What else can you take away from this man’s style?
