Amar’e Stoudemire’s Fashion Week ensemble makes him look like Sasquatch’s Jewish pimp (photos)

New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire not only fancies himself a member of the fashionisto brigade, he actually is the real deal and part of the high-profile fashion jet set, often spotted during New York Fashion Week year after year.

For this year’s annual event that takes over the Big Apple, Amar’e took it up a notch, even for a man who is always fashion forward, which of course means crazy, over-the-top and often garish get-ups that seem ridiculous to normal folks such as you and I.

Making an appearance at the EnNoir show, Stoudemire posted the above image showcasing his outfit of choice to Instagram. As you can see, Stoudemire was rocking some kind of fur or faux fur hooded vest-type coat thingy (how else can it be explained?), choosing to accessorize the whatever it was by bedecking himself in a Menorah chain.

With the sum of the separate parts of the ensemble in mind, to observe that Amar’e Stoudemire looks like Sasquatch’s Jewish pimp seems to be an apt and fitting description for whatever the hell is going on with that get-up.

Either that or perhaps Amar’e is modeling a costume from the set of a potential “Quest for Fire” sequel, or maybe some film about the questionable fashion sense of prehistoric men.

Another look via GQ:

In its Instagram post, GQ observes: “Amare Stoudemire looking fly in a killer fur hooded vest. That guy oozes cool style!”

Fly indeed. Although oozing cool style sounds like a potentially serious medical condition. Amar’e may want to get that checked out if the oozing becomes pus-filled and warm.
