Fashion Police: Kentucky Wildcats at the Derby

In what has become one of my favorite Derby traditions, several former Cats returned to their old Kentucky home this past weekend to enjoy the greatest two minutes in sports. Bam Adebayo, Kevin Knox, Hamidou Diallo, Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb, and Randall Cobb all made the rounds on the red carpet Friday and Saturday, and because I’m a little judgmental, I graded their outfits.

Bam Adebayo

Bam Adebayo sure knows how to wear a suit. Kudos to his tailor. I’m not crazy about the pattern, but it fits him well. Another strong showing from Bam, whose draft suit may be my favorite of all time.

Grade: B+

Kevin Knox

Look at Kevin Knox rocking a double-breasted jacket! This is a cool take on a classic, preppy look. I like the navy sports coat and white pants, although both look a smidge too short (I realize this is probably the look he’s going for). The pink bowtie is nice (I wish it weren’t satin), as are the shoes, which make it fresh and fun. For a first time Derby guest, Knox did well.

Grade: A-

Hamidou Diallo

Oh, Hami. I like the chambray jacket so much I’m willing to forgive the floppiness of the shirt collar (needs starch!), but those pants…I just don’t get the drop-crotch, cropped look. Also, those shoes are just…no. Sorry. #Old

Terrence Jones

Hey, look, it’s Terrence Jones! And he’s wearing a really ugly suit made of…burlap? Are those screaming gorillas on his polo shirt? Is that some kind of tribute to Harambe? (Do we still care about Harambe?) Why is he wearing a polo shirt with a suit? Does he not own a dress shirt anymore? Do I need to start worrying about Terrence Jones? I know the G-League life is tough, but someone needs to teach the real T. Jones bout fashion.

Doron Lamb

In case you were wondering what Doron Lamb’s been up to lately, well, he was at the Derby with his new BFF Hamidou Diallo. What a pair. I won’t lie, it made me happy to see D. Lamb pop up on the scene, looking exactly how you would think D. Lamb would look. This ensemble is…something. Driving shoes with a suit feels too casual for the Derby, but you know what? D. Lamb gonna D. Lamb. At least he didn’t spend the entire weekend ordering room service on someone else’s dime.

Randall Cobb

Cobb paired a tuxedo jacket with a black shirt for the Fillies & Stallions party. Not my favorite look in the world, but if anybody can pull it off, it’s Goldeneyes. The rest of the Packers look good, especially Aaron Rodgers. That plaid jacket is awesome.

Grade: B

BONUS: Von Miller

This look is so nuts I’m not even mad. Ditch the green shoes and the hat and that’s amazing.
