Chances are, even if there wasn’t a lockout going on, Carmelo Anthony would have spent part of his summer doing a fashion photo shoot for Italian Vogue magazine. But because of the lockout, it’s about the biggest piece of NBA news going on.
Thanks to the good folks at The Basketball Jones, we have a slew of photos of ‘Melo showing off some nice threads. But the pièce de résistance is the top hat he sports in a couple of photos. No doubt hats have made a great comeback and a crisp fedora is always a nice fashion accessory. But wearing a top hat leaves ‘Melo just a cane and monacle short of being either Mr. Peanut or the Monopoly guy.
Overall, Anthony looks pretty clean in the shoot. Besides, my fashion sense pretty much sucks, so who am I to argue?
