James Harden For Gentleman’s Quarterly

Full GQ story, written by Devin Gordon here. 

James Harden sported some new looks in a recent feature as the cover of GQ magazine. You can read the story for yourself, but let’s go down the list of exactly what the NBA’s expected 2017-2018 MVP was wearing,

“Yeezy season approaching
F–k whatever y’all been hearing
F–k what- f–k whatever y’all been wearing
A monster about to come alive again”

-Kanye West, “On Sight.”

“There is no Gucci I can buy
There is no Louis Vuitton to put on
There is no YSL that they could sell
To get my heart out of this hell
And my mind out of this jail”

-Kanye West, “Pinocchio Story”


Parka rockin’, as well as pants and a shirt by Louis Vuitton that costs a combined $2,935. Once again, Yeezy sneakers costing $300, glasses by Garrett Leight and a $5,540 Rolex watch. 

“You don’t see just how wild the crowd is?
You don’t see just how fly my style is?
I don’t see why I need a stylist
When I shop so much I can speak Italian”

-Kanye West, “Champion.”

James rocks a lemonade fit for the ages. Supreme jacket. Adidas track jacket priced at $80 and Daniel Patrick track pants priced at $350. Of course, $450 Yeezy-3s. Most expensive part of the outfit? The $510 Gucci shades. 

“So if the devil wear Prada
Adam, Eve wear nada
I’m in between but way more fresher”

-Kanye West, “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”


Calvin Klein coat worth $1,900 and turtleneck worth $295. Modestly priced glasses worth $175 by Raen. 

“Doing clothes, you would have thought I had help
But they wasn’t satisfied unless I picked the cotton myself”

-Kanye West “New Slaves.”

Burberry hoodie, $520 along with $1,725 shorts by Comme des Garcons Homme Plus. Sneakers and socks, $430 by Yeezy-3. 

“Man, I promise, I’m so self-conscious
That’s why you always see me with at least one of my watches
Rollies and Pashas done drove me crazy
I can’t even pronounce nothing, pass that Ver-say-see”
-Kanye West, “All Falls Down.”
 James is foolin’ on ’em now. $395 Balenciaga shirt, $160 Gosha Rubchinskiy x Adidas pants, $220 Alexander Wang Original Adidas and $229 shades by Super/Julian Klincewicz. 

“Fashion Killa”

-A$AP Rocky

Hoodie, $1,880, and shorts, $1,025, by Craig Green / Shoes, $120, by Adidas Originals / Socks, $10, by Stance. 

“Please dont touch my Raf,”

-A$AP Rocky


Raf Simons coat worth two racks and some change ($2,647). Neil Barrett coat worth $600 and $995 Ralph Lauren pants, $100 Stampd hat. Sunglasses designed by Retrosuperfuture priced at $216. 


An eye-opening feature for Harden.

From his rookie contract in Oklahoma City where he was a top three sixth man in the league to being the undisputed face of the Houston Rockets. The South Central, Los Angeles native has transformed into a fashion icon before our eyes, on his own.

With everything he’s accomplished this season plus what has yet to come, the Beard gets to add ‘cover of GQ Magazine” to his list.
