Shirts were optional at the ESPYs

While embellished gowns and massive diamonds take center stage at most awards shows, Wednesday’s ESPYs red carpet was all about men and their bare chests.

Perhaps as a way to cope with the sweltering Los Angeles heat, Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills wore a custom red three-piece suit by Damari Savile, but opted to show off his tattooed pecs instead of wearing a shirt.

Mills’ look was downright tame compared to his teammate Rodney McLeod’s. The Eagles safety ditched a vest in favor of going completely topless under his purple suit, and proudly flaunted his washboard abs for photographers.

Other menswear highlights from the ESPYs? Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon‘s embellished white jacket, new Laker JaVale McGee’s floral tux and $1,290 Gucci fanny pack and breakthrough athlete winner Donovan Mitchell’s Spiderman-themed suit (a nod to the Utah Jazz guard’s nickname, “Spida”).

At the 2018 ESPY Awards, gone was the basic black suit — at least, for the most part. Instead, men opted for daring styles that stood out.

JaVale McGee stood out in a pair of rose-patterned pants with a matching suit jacket. The Los Angeles Lakers star accessorized with a trendy red Gucci fanny pack and dark sunglasses, completing his look with black velvety slippers.

McGee was not the only Lakers star to make a splash on the red carpet style. Kyle Kuzma rejected the standard black tux jacket in favor of a teal, snakeskin-print. The basketball player went simple with his footwear, choosing shiny black shoes.

Another of McGee and Kuzma’s teammates, Josh Hart, made a bold statement with his footwear, keeping his attire simple in an all-black look consisting of a patterned jacket, fitted trousers and a black dress shirt. Hart completed his look with embellished black slippers that added a pop to his otherwise monochrome outfit.

Of course, Lakers stars were not the only men to experiment with their looks at this year’s ESPY Awards.

NFL player Rodney McLeod went bold in a bright purple suit and glittery Chelsea boots. The Philadelphia Eagle went shirtless, showing off his tattooed chest and cross necklace.

McLeod’s teammate Jalen Mills chose a similarly daring look. Like McLeod, he opted for no shirt, flaunting his abs in a red three-piece suit that he paired with matching shoes. Mills accessorized with oversized sunglasses and dyed his usually dark hair a bright Eagles green.
