Dwyane Wade’s Onesie Jumpsuit

DWade Pimp Suit

So I’m probably one of few people whose feeling NBA star Dwyane Wade and his pimp suit onesie.

Wade has worn some questionable outfits and accessories in the past but imma give a brotha props on this one. The royal blue blazer gives a nice contrast to the black jumpsuit. The gold chain, watch, button and the gold trim on his loafers tie everything together. I feel ya playa.

After Wade posted the pic from his Esquire shoot on Instagram, the internet freaked out. Some likened Wade to MC Hammer, a magician about to pull a rabbit from somewhere; while others said he was channeling Zoolander. Would I wear this myself…HELL NO. Nonetheless Wade (and the designer of this onesie) is doing something his publicist and the Miami Heat couldn’t do in the NBA off season; and that is have the world speaking his name.

For me, the stylish jumpsuit was inspired by the 70’s, Blaxploitation and the slicked-out-pimp Super Fly-esque fashions of that era. I submit the below photos as proof.

    That looks great on him and if I could find one that complimented my body, I would rock it.

    I definitely would rock the shit out of one. He’s hot and it looks hot on him.

    It’s like the man-bun or any type of nail polish — can only ever work in direct proportion to the countervailing level of robust masculinity. And not something a masc gay man can afford to mess with lightly

    Well, history does repeat itself. 😕 I actually think it looks good on Wade but lets keep it real, not too many people can pull this look off lol.

    I… actually like it. I don’t know if I’m bold enough to do something like that, but it definitely works for him (at least in editorial form.) It is not going to work for most of the men who will try to wear it in real life though.

    It’s definitely a conversation piece. I’d be interested to hear his thoughts regarding why he chose to wear it and whether it sparked the attention that he desired.

    My soft spot for 70s fashion is probably why I like this.It works somehow.I think it’d look even cooler with a belt or something.

    Well I don’t like loafers… in general, but I guess I like the outfit… I guess… I think… but I will say though. Those men in those suits were sexy as hell though for the 70s. Men back in those days must’ve had their fashion sense on point!

    To be honest the man onsie was a part of fashion history that was actually dope when worn correctly. This however… is wrong. The silhouette of it with the blazer draped over his shoulder doesn’t look correctly fitted. Dwayne is 6’4 and he actually looks short and I actually think I saw online somewhere that they compared him to Darkwing Duck unmasked lol… Very Accurate lol. The only positive I have about this photo is his little outtie naval.

    I like the purple one piece and the wide waist pants from the 70s in the photos above. I actually have a coffee table book of 70s fashion. It’s interesting in how back then, men were not afraid to wear tight and short things. I’m really thinking that since American waistlines have grown, the baggy trend is not slowing down but I am seeing many larger guys in the tapered leg jeans and pants.

    Maybe those sci fi future movies where everyone one is wearing tight clothes will become a reality.

    As for Dewayne’s suit…the pose is wrong and I think the legs of it around the calves should be more tapered. To me, it’s a bad fit and looks like he got it off the rack and didn’t tailor it.
