Michael Jordan Will Wear Whatever Pants He Pleases, Thank You

Michael Jordan is the best basketball player of all time and a damn good golfer, too. However, his notoriously terrible sartorial choices got him banned from the exclusive La Gorce Country Club in Miami Beach.

Jordan was apparently wearing cargo pants on the course in violation of the dress code, which requires Bermuda shorts. The NY Post's Page Six writes:

“He was given the chance to change but he didn’t want to,” a source said. The source added that Jordan, who was enjoying a round at the club with one of its members, played on anyway. The source added that members complained about Jordan breaking the rules and, “He won’t be invited back.”

A rep for Jordan said, “Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change. We were not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce. I guess it’s their loss — as MJ is a great golfer, and a great guest.”

These cargo pants sound like they might be a step up from Jordan's other wardrobe mishaps. For the finest ugly outfits lotsa money can buy, check out the "What the fuck is Michael Jordan wearing?" Tumblr. At least he's not still trying to bring the Hitler 'stache back.
