Kevin Garnett Unwrapped? Never.
Here's the thing about Kevin Garnettâ€”the man just loves his scarves. After nearly every gameâ€”in the winter and sometimes even when it's warmâ€”KG emerges from the locker room with a muffler tied tightly around his neck. We asked Jeff Lahens, the founder of Dresscode Boston, to break down six of KG's go-to looks.
As Time Goes By: KGâ€™s style is â€śvery classic,â€ť Lahens says. Noting the martial design of his jacket, Lahens adds that the scarfâ€™s color â€śworks for the military-preppy look heâ€™s going for.â€ť
Blocking Out: â€śHe does a lot of the double-sided scarfs, double-colored,â€ť Lahens says. â€śIt creates a good contrast between one side to the next.â€ť
Triple-Double: â€śThis one isnâ€™t bad,â€ť Lahens says, but itâ€™s not his favorite. â€śThereâ€™s so much going on there.â€ť
You the Man: â€śI like square patterns,â€ť Lahens says. â€śI think itâ€™s masculine, and heâ€™s very masculine.â€ť
Mr. Versatility: Lahens love the colors and patterns on this scarf. â€śIt matches any type of color you would want to wear,â€ť he says, adding that the classic design is â€śtrend-proof.â€ť
Split Personality: According to Lahens, this one signals that in-game KG and post-game KG are two different people. â€śItâ€™s clean,â€ť he explains. Itâ€™s like KG is saying, â€śI can get my hands dirty, but I can keep a clean white shirt. Or I can keep a clean white scarf.â€ť
