I don’t know a lot about basketball, but I know enough to recognize that LeBron James is considered a god amongst men, a sentiment that was further confirmed by this recent fit from the Lakers star. The outfit in question is relatively simple, at the most basic level consisting of a patterned button-up, black shorts, white sneakers and some accessories. But there’s one glaringly important detail: LeBron’s shiny, perfectly chiseled and artfully tattooed chest, brazenly bared for the world to see.
Before you object that you could never pull off the look, we’re gonna stop you right there, and tell you that yes, in fact, you can. You just need to follow a few simple steps.
The first is to accept the fact that you are not and will never be LeBron. Once you’ve got that out of the way, it’s time to acquire the confidence required to wear your shirt completely unbuttoned. Regardless of whether you have a six-pack or not, no one’s going to notice, or care, as long as you exude confidence. It also doesn’t hurt to have some tattoos and shiny necklaces to distract from your midsection.
Now then: if you’re feeling especially brave, or just really hot (in both the literal and figurative sense), shop our dupes for LeBron’s look below.
