For the most part, Carmelo Anthony is a pretty dapper man. When he puts the pieces together, it's a nice fit (see above picture), but sometimes he gambles with his wardrobe and, well, he loses all of his money and gets kicked out of the casino and then a car drives by and splashes dirty mud water on him. Here are a few examples of those poor fashion choices:

27. The Beginning

If there's one thing Carmelo loves, it's baggy oversized suits that make him look ridiculous. It's something Michael Jordan has been doing for many, many years. Sadly.

21. Ugly Sweater

I don't know what's going on with that sweatshirt design, but it is not working. Especially when Swizz Beatz is right next to him in a tux.
