Waka Flocka Flame
With Rory winning the British Open, Waka Flocka Flame also felt the need to make his own mark on the golf world. It’s amazing how his putting stroke even managed to get the ball rolling on target, and to top it all off, the ball went in. Well, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Aside from his putting stroke, Waka Flocka Flame escalated his style as well. The FC Barcelona jersey and Timbs go surprisingly well together, not to mention the matching belt. However, although all of this alone is worthy of style points, the real kicker in itself is the “Watch out Rory!” he yells after draining the putt.

Chicago’s finest had himself a great week. Besides being one of the best players at Team USA training camp in Las Vegas, Rose also officially unveiled his new sneaker, the adidas D Rose 5 Boost. With a few especially slick colorways — that black/grey edition is a must-have for anyone with any kind of style — it’s sure to be one of this season’s best-selling kicks.
But what I’ll remember most is Rose’s hops. I knew he’d look good in controlled scrimmages with the national team and I knew his kicks would impress as always, but the hops were something I was nervous he’d lost. Thankfully, it looks like he’s the same old Derrick.

This is one of the best times of the year. Baseball is rumbling towards the end of the regular season and the start of the playoff races, and football is finally back. With training camps thoroughly underway, it feels like every day is a holiday. New stars like Sammy Watkins and Teddy Bridgewater are making headlines in camp, and veterans like Michael Vick are showing out in new homes. It’s the perfect opportunity for players to show off what they got.
On our end, each week in Style Points we’ll count down recent people who took their game and their swagger to another level. Whether it was defying the odds and retiring on their own terms, coming back with a flourish or continuing to set style trends, these six went above and beyond.
