The month of March for 2023 is officially in the books! Below we complied the list for the Top 10 Brands we saw the pros wear the most this month. Which brands will sneak into the Top Ten in April?!
KidSuper and creative director Colm Dillane have been the hottest names in menswear this year. Between KidSuper’s collaboration with the NBA to reimagine NBA jerseys and Dillane’s appointment as guest creative director of Louis Vuitton mens, no brand has made a bigger statement. Artistic elements and painting-like details make Dillane’s jersey and clothing designs feel like true works of art. Terry Rozier chose a KidSuper jacket for a pregame fit that exemplified this.
2.) Who Decides War
Many pros agree that Who Decides War’s signature ripped and appliquéd denim is the perfect centerpiece of a look. Featuring stained glass window imagery and creative embroidery, Who Decides War has some of the coolest denim and varsity jackets out right now. James Harden, Terry Rozier, and many others have incorporated Who Decides War pieces in their pregame wardrobe. The brand’s momentum doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon.
3.) Rick Owens
All your favorite pros wore Rick Owens in March. The brand’s minimalist but statement making pieces appeared on everyone from Lewis Hamilton to Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Rick Owens’ sneakers and wide leg pant styles served as the building blocks of many fits. Some athletes, including Stefon Diggs, had the opportunity to attend the Rick Owens Fall 2023 runway show earlier this month in Paris which foreshadows the brand continuing to be a favorite.
4.) Bottega Veneta
Bottega Veneta’s classic pieces continued to trend with the pros. Brandon Ingram arrived at the Pelicans game in a flannel-inspired leather shirt which was one of the most talked about pieces from the brand’s recent collection. Stefon Diggs was seen out at Milan Fashion Week in a full Bottega look, and PJ Tucker wore a standout herringbone suit. Athletes also loved to accessorize with Bottega Veneta including both nylon and leather versions of woven backpacks and crossbody bags. Whether pros were hopping on the team plane or pulling up to the arena or stadium, you couldn’t miss the unmistakable signatures from the Italian brand.
Marni’s popularity has skyrocketed recently. The brand’s trademark bright colors, prints, and exaggerated details bring a unique vibe to a fit. Pros rocked styles including mohair sweaters and standout slides. Jalen Green wore Marni’s fringed jeans, while Jeremy Sochan and Jalen Willams opted for knitwear. Marni’s recent collaboration with Carhartt proved to be popular as well as it seems every week pieces from the collection are seen on athletes.
Amiri was one of the most versatile brands this March. Pros styled everything from formal suits to baseball hats and sweatshirts. This March showcased some of the ways that Amiri has stayed fresh and current. Royce O’Neil attended the premiere of the movie Air in an Amiri suit, while Pat Surtain arrived at the Amiri Fall 2023 Menswear show in Paris in a purple look. Karl-Anthony Towns made a statement court-side in the Amiri x Wes Lang collab.
7.) Louis Vuitton
Virgil Abloh’s last collection with Louis Vuitton was in the spotlight this March. One of the highlights of the collection was the wavy jeans that were worn by Nickeil Alexander-Walker and others. Trey Murphy showed off the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama collaboration, and as demonstrated in many fits, Louis Vuitton’s signature monogram print seemingly never goes out of style. The brand’s future looks bright. As guest creative director earlier this year, KidSuper’s Colm Dillane carried on Abloh’s streetwear legacy at the brand and ensured its continued popularity.
Pros chose Kapital’s knits to make a statement this month. Notable examples include Jalen Ramsey making the move to Miami in Kapital sweats, and Evan Fournier stepping out in New York in a knit take on a denim jacket. Nickeil Alexander-Walker stayed cozy in sweatpants as well. The brand’s use of patchwork materials and unique textures and colors make it an off the court and off the field favorite.
9.) Gallery Dept.
Gallery Dept.’s flared jeans were a consistent staple for the pros in March. Tunnel fit pics across the NBA featured the brand’s distressed and paint splattered styles. CJ McCollum kept things simple with a Gallery Dept graphic tee, and Jaren Jackson Jr wore Gallery Dept jeans in a look that made as big of a statement as his play this season. Gallery Dept also teamed up with the Los Angeles Rams to produce a capsule collection that exemplifies how fashion and sports go hand in hand.
Carhartt’s outerwear was the choice for pros who wanted a casual vibe. The simple, cozy aesthetic of the brand has been one of the biggest trends recently. Trey Murphy and Jordan Poole were fans of the classic Carhartt zip-up. Pros that wanted a more elevated look opted for the Marni x Carhartt collaboration. The bright floral print was worn by athletes across many professional leagues. A collection with Sacai shown at Paris fashion week and a rumored Nike collab should keep Carhartt on everyone’s radar.
