James Harden made a bit of a bold statement when he showed up to Game 4 of the Houston Rockets versus Dallas Mavericks this past Sunday (April 26).

It wasn’t his court skills that did the talking, but more of his fashion game when he appeared to be wearing skinny jeans and a camo t-shirt hugging…well, concoction dipped in floral butter.

Peep the shirt below:

NBA stylist Kesha McLeod gave Complex the details on what had the hoop world scratching their heads for a hot second. McLeod is like Radio Shack – “You’ve Got Questions…,” well you know the rest:

You’ve worked with James before, right?
I work with him occasionally on projects. I wouldn’t call myself his stylist. He works more with a retail stylist, if that makes any sense.

Did you see his outfit last night?
I did. And I’m very familiar with what he’s wearing as well.

Well, everybody was making fun of him because it looks like he’s wearing a skirt. Can you explain the long tee under the short tee look?
It’s the brand specifically, Givenchy. They often do men’s kilts or they do the longer t-shirt with the different pattern and I think it’s more so the illusion that gave James Harden the skirt effect, especially how tall he is. So from the different pattern, that’s what it looked like. What I do like about it is that it’s something that he has the courage to do whether it’s the kilt or the different pattern look.

So a guy like James Harden—you’ve worked with him before—has input in what he wears?
100 percent. That’s the Swag God, or at least that’s what he refers to himself as. He knows what he wants.

So the final verdict is, James Harden isn’t wearing a long tee or a skirt it’s a kilt?
But he is wearing a long tee, that’s just what it’s coming across as. I know the shirt. 100 percent.

And there you have it folks. The Rockets, who are leading the series 3-1, are expected to play the Mavericks on Tues. April 28 for Game 5.

If Givenchy is out of your price range, it’s okay. Check out Esquire’s recommended floral shirts for men. Places like Zara and the GAP will serve as great option.
