Personally, at least, I struggle with some of these decisions. But it’s also undeniable that lots of people—Herro has 2.2 million Instagram followers, surely not all people who idolize his jump shot—think he looks cool and good. So what’s going on here? Is Herro dressing for a bit, or because he thinks he looks great? His Twitter handle is @raf_tyler, after all. He’s definitely in the know when it comes to designer brands, but have these playoff looks been an intentional effort to be seen or is this just really how the kids are dressing?
To answer the question, I texted my Gen Z sister. She is much closer to Herro’s age than my age—and, helpfully, isn’t familiar with the Heat’s fashionista, making her an objective observer. She went directly to his Instagram, and came back with, “I like all his fits in his recent Instagram post.” (For transparency, like any good zoomer, that text—like every text she sends—was in all lowercase.) Her response to the light blue fuzzy bucket hat was “oh i love the hat.” (She is firmly pro-bucket hat.) As for the get-up that Van Gundy made fun of on national television, she said, “it seems the pants are striped and i don’t like that but i do like the hat.”
There you have it, folks. If you were born in the 2000s, there’s a decent possibility you live on Bucket Hat Island—whether you’re a goofy millionaire basketball player or a college freshman texting me from her dorm. And if you think Tyler Herro needs to work on his style, well, you’re probably just washed.
