Sometimes things don’t have to make any sense to be great. For example, K1X’s new “Oak Collection,” a brand new line of Charles Oakley-themed merchandise. Why is a guy who’s been retired for seven years having an entire line of clothes devoted to him by a minor shoe brand? No idea, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome.
Everything from the t-shirts to the crewneck sweatshirts to the shorts look great, even if you’re not the biggest fan of the mid-1990s Knicks. The “Lil Oak” tee, featuring cartoon Charles Oakley rocking football pads and eye
blackblue under his basketball uniform, is particularly choice, but you can’t really go wrong with anything that K1X is offering. I’m really hoping all the employees at Oakley’s car wash get their own jackets, because that just seems like a really nice work uniform.
So yeah, Charles Oakley fashions now exist, for reasons that are not entirely clear. But that’s OK because this is nice gear for chillin’ with your bros, though you’ll probably have to explain at least once that you’re wearing something honoring one of the NBA’s most notorious goons. Just because it looks good doesn’t make it any less befuddling.
