Josh Giddey Is Australia’s Newest Style Icon

Josh Giddey might only be 19 but he’s taken the basketball world by storm. The talented Melburnian, who joined the Oklahoma City Thunder as the sixth overall pick in the 2021 NBA draft mid-last year, has quickly and definitely made his stamp on the sport.

Not only was he named the 2020-21 NBL Rookie of the Year for his exploits Down Under with the Adelaide 36ers, but he’s also become the youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double. He’s even garnered praise from the GOAT LeBron James, who’s said “he’s really, really, really good”, has “great vision” and “play[s] beautiful basketball”, Fox Sports reports.

He’s also managed to stay pretty humble, despite his stratospheric rise – and he’s also shaping up to be one of the best-dressed men in the NBA. Scratch that. Josh Giddey is probably one of the best-dressed Australian athletes on the planet right now, full stop.

Unlike some of his NBA colleagues – who have a constantly evolving, somewhat wacky approach to fashion – Josh has a pretty defined aesthetic, and it’s one that works really well for him.

He’s a fan of denim, regularly pairing black jeans with a contrasting trucker’s jacket, and paired with white or light-colored sneakers (he’s a Nike athlete, so we’d say he’s got Air Force 1s and Dunks on tap). It’s a look that anyone who’s spent time around inner-city Sydney or Melbourne would be intimately familiar with – don’t call it a Canadian tuxedo, it’s a Fitzroy fit.

It’s also a very versatile look that complements his height well and can be easily jazzed up with a cool accessory, such as a luxury timepiece. Giddey’s not been in the NBA for long but he’s already got a few: his favorite watch seems to be his Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph (not sure of the exact reference) but he’s also been spotted with what looks like an OMEGA Speedmaster.

Speaking of luxury, Giddey has definitely discovered a passion for designer jackets. He’s recently shared photos where he’s rocking a Louis Vuitton x Human Made work jacket, and his most Instagram post shows him staying warm in a Dior puffer.

Actually, he seems to be a big fan of puffer jackets. Seeing as Oklahoma City gets pretty cold during the winter – and being smack dab in the middle of Tornado Alley, often gets hit with twisters, hailstorms and the like – having a few toasty puffers in your wardrobe is a smart move.

All in all, Giddey’s style doesn’t reinvent the wheel or anything, but he dresses consistently well and cuts a sharp figure. Indeed, the only thing that looks better than his wardrobe is his moves on the court. We’re keen to see his style continue to evolve… And for the young Aussie to keep dominating the NBA.
