Michael Jordan: Style Icon?

While the title of this post may be a little bit of a stretch, SI has some great college-era photos of His Airness that showcase a classic and laid back style.  These pictures, dating back to 1983, take a look at Jordan's life off the court and are a great retrospective on not only the greatest basketball player of all-time, but an era in which traditional American clothing ruled campuses across the country...even those of future 5x MVP winners.

[It's doubtful Jordan actually ever took notes while at Chapel Hill, but you can definitely take notes on his gear.  The almost pink, button-down collar, short sleeve oxford matched with the gray trousers screams trad.]

[Jordan strolls across campus with Sam Perkins.  The brown leather motor cycle jacket expertly dresses down this fall outfit and it appears as if #23 has ditched his Nike's in favor of loafers.]

[Jordan, again, pictured with Perkins.  You don't need to win 6 NBA championships to know that a great fitting pair of flat front pants have no need for a belt.]

[Always the performer, on and off the court...a slim-fitting rugby shirt paired with straight-fit, dark wash denim and classic white sneaks wouldn't be so out of place on campus today.]
