Andrew Wiggins' NBA Draft Outfit Draws 'Three Amigos' Comparisons

Andrew Wiggins won Thursday's NBA Draft.

Sure, the University of Kansas phenom was taken No. 1 by the Cleveland Cavaliers, a selection befitting his massive talent.

But the 19-year-old Canadian truly dominated the event in the style department, rocking a rose-printed blazer designed by Waraire Boswell, with help from stylist Brandon Williams.

“I wanted to set him apart from the past and other drafts,” Boswell told Women’s Wear Daily.

Boswell succeeded on that front, with Wiggins drawing acclaim, attention, scorn, criticism, awe and even comparisons to the 1986 comedy western “Three Amigos.”

Cameras focused on the unique outfit.

Take it in, in all its glory.

Of course, not all of the discourse was positive.

Professional athletes were among the critics.

But in the end, this was Wiggins' night.
