This Men's Fashion Trend Is All Dwyane Wade's Fault

Jim McIsaac

It's one thing when it's custom made clothes for NBA superstars looking to be different. But mainstream sales? Yeah, I don't think so.

Today, Business Insider assembled a blog post about "short suits."  More accurately, it's a suit that has shorts instead of pants.  Here's one of the pictures that they used as an example:

No.  Just..... no.

BI reports that J. Crew and Barneys are leading the way on selling the suits which are missing half the pants legs for about $400, although Barneys has this suit available for $859.  You couldn't pay me $859 to wear that.

In any case, BI attributes the trend to music producer and N.E.R.D. frontman Pharrell Williams, who wore something similar to the most recent Acadamy Awards.  If this were a trend about Pharell's hat from the Grammys, I'd believe that.  But no, I have to believe that responsibility for the short suit trend lies at the feet - or exposed legs, I suppose - of Marquette alumnus and Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade.

Remember when we all joked about Wade wearing Nate Robinson's pants during the Bulls-Heat series last year?  And then there was the "Wade stands up to reveal shorts" moment from Game 2 of the Heat-Pacers series just a few weeks ago.

Sorry, Pharrell. We know who the real culprit is in this fashion trend.  It's one of Marquette's own.  Hopefully it doesn't last too long.
