Based on his highly-questionable sartorial choices these days, most would probably be surprised to learn that Michael Jordan was once considered a fashion icon. The Charlotte Bobcats’ owner reportedly upset some folks at a golf country club by ignoring their ridiculous dress code. Per the NY Post: “Michael Jordan ruffled feathers at an exclusive Miami Beach country club when he wouldn’t play by their rules. […] ‘Michael was wearing cargo pants on the course,’ said a spy. Jordan’s multipocketed pants were apparently against the dress code that, sources say, dictates that members and guests must be attired in a collared shirt and Bermuda shorts. But when 6-foot, 6-inch Jordan was offered a chance to change outfits, he demurred. ‘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.’ The club did not respond for comment.”
